In each of Figures 3.2 to 3.4, the creditor could have insisted that the shareholder (or one or more shareholders) secure the obligations of A Ltd under a loan between the creditor and A Ltd. Such guarantees are very common in the context of corporate groups when they are referred to as “parent guarantees”. They are also very common in the context of individual members or private companies. 678.Assistance in the acquisition of shares in a public limited company 658.General rule prohibiting the acquisition of own shares by a public limited company To understand the meaning of a company, it is important to understand the concept of legal person.

M. Salomon fulfilled this requirement by becoming a subscriber himself, his wife and five adult children (under the Companies Act 2006, only one participant or member is required). The initial nominal share capital of the company was £40,000. This was divided into 40,000 shares with a par value of £1 each. Seven £1 shares were issued, one of which was issued to each shareholder/member/subscriber, bringing the company`s initial share capital to £7. The first directors were appointed by the shareholders and were Mr. Salomon and his two eldest sons. In terms of criminal liability, a number of offences are specifically directed against companies, particularly under the Companies Act 2006, and do not apply to individuals. Others have been designed with corporations as a class of defendants in mind, for example: breaches of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1974, etc. With regard to crime in general, many offences have been established against individuals, and the courts have endeavoured to establish principles governing when an artificial entity is executed such as mens rea required and/or actus reus required, i.e.
for our purposes when actions and thoughts are attributed to a company. The guiding principle, derived from Lennard`s Carrying Co Ltd v. Asiatic Petroleum Co Ltd  AC 705 (HL) and developed by the courts, is called the “guiding mind and will test”, the “identification theory” or the alter ego principle. It was applied in the landmark case of Tesco Supermarkets Ltd v. Nattrass  AC 153 (HL), which concerned Tesco advertising products for sale at a price lower than the price at which it had actually offered them for sale, an offence at the time under the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 (now repealed and replaced by another offence under the Consumer Protection Act 1987). The theory requires that a person be “identified” with the company in order for criminal liability to be associated with the company. This happens when the individual is seen as the “directing mind and will” of the company. This theory of attribution has given rise to difficult jurisprudence, and the test has been characterized as “dysfunctional” (see Sullivan, 1996). (a)whose instrument of incorporation states that it is a public limited-liability company; and (a)it shall be issued when the documents to be submitted under section 9 are notified to the Registrar; and (a)the other provisions of this Chapter identify the companies to which this Part applies and explain certain key concepts, including what it means: to have “significant control” over a company, It follows from the separate legal personality of companies and the ability of a company to own property that a company may hold shares in another company. This is the basis for the existence of groups that can and often consist of more than 100 companies, all of which are ultimately owned by a parent company.
