Dickinson  NAL Realisations (Staffordshire) Ltd [2019] EWCA Civ 2146

2019年12月,英国上诉法院应要求审议“Duomatic原则”(来源于1969年的Duomatic Ltd一案, Re [1969] 2 Ch. 365)的适用性,公司决策问题一度成为关注的焦点。该原则为某些情况下的非正式股东批准提供了依据。根据这一原则,即使未遵循公司章程规定的正确程序,但只要获得了所有股东的一致批准,那么财产的转让也是有效的。因此,倘若已经召开了股东大会,那么所有股东的批准将成为一项具有约束力的决议。 Continue Reading 若寻求非正式股东批准,不要忘记受托方机构

Dickinson v NAL Realisations (Staffordshire) Ltd [2019] EWCA Civ 2146

Company decision-making was under the spotlight in December 2019, when the UK’s Court of Appeal was asked to consider the “Duomatic principle” (taken from the 1969 case Duomatic Ltd, Re [1969] 2 Ch. 365) which gave credence to informal shareholder approvals in certain circumstances. Based on the principle, a transfer of property can be valid even if the correct procedures under a company’s articles of association have not been followed, provided that all shareholders provide their unanimous approval, so that, if a general meeting had been convened, approval by all shareholders would have been binding as a resolution.

一、复利,专属性权利?

我们所在团队近期代表某国有AMC(下称“AMC”)处理了一起金融不良债权诉讼,基本案情如下:

AMC从某银行受让了一笔金融不良债权,这笔不良债权系某企业(“债务人”)因不能清偿到期贷款产生的,银行将这笔债权转让给某民间资管公司,该资管公司又将该笔债权转让给AMC。AMC受让后提起金融不良债权追偿之诉,诉请包括债务本金、金融借款合同约定的罚息以及复利;庭审中,债务人援引(2019)最高法民申2412号案例(下称“2412号案例”)抗辩,认为最高人民法院(下称“最高院”)已认定,收取复利的权利专属于金融机构,本案的原始债权虽为金融机构的债权,但AMC的前一手受让人为非金融机构,其无权取得计收复利的权利,因此也无权向AMC转让复利计收的权利,据此认为AMC无权取得原金融借款合同下的全部复利。 Continue Reading 复利是否专属于金融机构? –由一起案例引发的思考
