|September 7th, 2012||
|TELUS, the Canadian telecomminications company, is seeking a court order to prevent Mason Capital, a New York hedge fund conducting an invalid shareholder meeting the same day as its court-approved shareholder meeting. According to HedgeCo, TELUS called a shareholder meeting to conduct a vote on a proposal to collapse its dual-share classes to create a new common share class that would be listed on the NYSE. |
TELUS has accused Mason Capital of staging the second meeting as a means to confuse shareholders and profit from a widening price spread between the two existing share classes. TELUS CFO, Robert McFarlene argues that the meeting scheduled by Mason Capital is invalid according to Canadian corporate law.
