QUESTION 1

a. The Articles of Association of Train Sdn Bhd provide that the directors may borrow on
behalf of the company such sum not exceeding RM100,000 at any one time without
the consent of the company in general meeting, and that they may borrow further
sums with such consent.

At the request of the managing director of Train Sdn Bhd, Johan (another director)
gave a loan of RM120,000 to the company last month. Train Sdn Bhd now refuses to
repay the loan on the ground that no authority for the transaction was given to the
managing director by the company in general meeting.

Advise Johan.

(15 marks)

b. P&P Sdn Bhd is a property development company set up by Peter, Paul and Paula.
Peter has acted as the managing director of the company, although he was never
appointed as such. The other directors allowed him to do so. Six months ago, Peter
appointed an architect firm, Parker & Partners to carry out work for the company.
When Parker & Partners sought payment for their services upon completion of their
work, they were told that the company is not liable to pay as Peter had no authority to
bind the company.

Advise Parker & Partners as to their rights against P&P Sdn Bhd in respect of the
said contract.

(10 marks)

GOOD LUCK!
