approval of shareholders
Companies are ultimately controlled by their shareholders voting in general meeting. Meetings of shareholders are convened by formal notice. The procedure is contained in the Articles of Association. Ordinary resolutions are passed by a simple majority of shareholders present in person or in proxy voting at the meeting. Special Resolutions require a 75% majority.
