Andrew, Brian, Colin, Diana and Elizabeth were the directors of Gemsales Ltd, a company engaged in the business of importing and supplying jewellery as wholesalers to the local market.

The company decided that as the market was becoming more competitive it needed to expand its business as it felt with increased volumes of sales it would be able to lower its prices and be more competitive. In order to do so it obtained a €4 million dollar loan from the Friendly Bank Ltd. €3 million was used to buy more stock and €1 million was used to buy a large new warehouse and showrooms from Traders Ltd.

Colin was not at the meeting that had made these decisions as he was in hospital recovering from a serious accident. Elizabeth, as was her usual custom, had not attended the meeting but signed the requisite documentation agreeing to the expansion of the business and the getting of the loan. Diana who attended, said she did not know if she agreed and abstained from voting. Andrew and Brian both voted to go ahead with the expansion and the getting of the loan.

At about this time Brian has established contact with Victor, who was setting up a new business as a retailer of jewellery. Victor was looking for reliable suppliers, but said he would not deal with Gemsales Ltd as he did not like Andrew, the Managing Director. Not wishing to miss out on such a lucrative business opportunity, Brian arranged to set up his own business as a jewellery wholesaler and a contract was entered into between Victor and Brian for the supply of jewellery.
