Tutorial 3: Company constitution* TRUE/FALSE QUESTIONS1.   John, Robert and Jackie are the only shareholders of Camelot Pty Ltd. John and Robert (who between them hold 80% of the issued shares in Camelot Pty Ltd) want to ensure the shares of Camelot Pty Ltd are not sold to Nixon Pty Ltd, a competitor of Camelot Pty Ltd. John and Robert can call a meeting of shareholders and pass a special resolution altering the constitution to provide that shareholders in Camelot Pty Ltd can transfer their shares to any person except Nixon Pty Ltd without the consent of the company and that amendment is enforceable.2.   Article 11 of the constitution of GI Joe Pty Ltd provides:”This constitution can only be amended by the company passing a special resolution and with the unanimous consent of Class A shareholders.”Notwithstanding Article 11, the constitution of GI Joe Pty Ltd can be amended by the company passing a special resolution in accordance with section 136(2) of the Corporations Act (Cth) 2001.3.   While the constitution of a company is technically a contract between, inter alia, the company and its directors, it is a unique contract created by statute pursuant to which no consideration is given and therefore it is not enforceable by the directors.4.   Malcolm is an employee of Unicorn Pty Ltd (“Unicorn”).
