SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING.
A special general meeting was held immediately after the statutory meet ing, the same gentlemen being present Mr At J. Turner in tbe chair-
The chairman moved a resolution empowering the Company to increase its capital from £2000 to £8000-
Seconded by Mr P. Cunningham. Mr Penlington asked what tbe ob jeefc of the increase was.
. The chairman said the Company bad bought property valued at £850. They would probably have to.pay £800 for building and abcut £1000 for plant. To obtain a factory with tbe latest equipments tbry would have to pay about £2000 There would be other preliminary expense?, and the £2000 capital was not suffi cient. The directors thought it better to increase ordinary capital at tbe start. They only had £1000 of non supplying shares which was the only capital available, and tbey could not work their Company on £1000 capitalBy increasing the capital to £8000 i& would allow for £2000 for non-supply-ing shares and £1000 for suppliers-
A shareholder said the purchase of the property at £850 was a good ideaThere was something to stand for the money invested- They hod oougbfc a factory site which would probably double in value in the next 10 or 15 years.
Mr H. C. Dierek said that he understood tbat a shareholder was prepared to finance the Company by buying 2000 shares, and if this was so he could not see why they should need tbe extra £1000 capital, The ohairman said they had nothing in writing from the gentleman referred to, and he believed he had put his offer in a differ, ent form since.
Mr Lawreno9 raised the point as to how shares would be allocated in case suppliers required more than the 1000 allotted them.
The chairman said this was a matter • entirely for tbe directors to attend to, and , would be settled equitably. Tbe chairman's motion was carried unanimously.
