Becketts’ client succeeds in changing the Board of Mount Rommel Mining Limited following urgent Court proceedings

Becketts advised a major shareholder of Mount Rommel Mining Limited (Mount Rommel), a Victorian gold explorer which was publicly listed until last year, in relation to the appointment of new Directors to the Board of Mount Rommel through a shareholder requisitioned Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) which was opposed by Mount Rommel’s previous Chairman.

The EGM took place on 9 April 2021 after a successful urgent application to the Supreme Court of Victoria for orders requiring Mount Rommel and its existing Board to hold the EGM. Becketts’ client and other shareholders keen to see a fresh approach to the management of Mount Rommel were successfully elected to the Board of Mount Rommel.

Partner Robert Feiner advised on corporate aspects and Senior Associate Peter Clay acted in the urgent Supreme Court proceedings and advised generally in relation to meeting procedure and strategy including communications with shareholders leading up to the EGM.
