Question 2 (10 marks)
Plant Well Pty Ltd (?Plant Well?) operates a nursery growing and selling garden plants. Charlie, Delta and Eric are the only directors and shareholders of Plant Well. Charlie manages the day-to-day
operations of the company. Delta, whose formal education finished at the age of 14, is in charge of the nursery. Eric is a non-executive director and does not take an active part in the
management operations of the company.
Recently a competing business opened near the nursery and, as a result, Plant Well?s profits have dropped. Charlie thinks that Plant Well should move to larger premises in a different area.
Without consulting either Delta or Eric, Charlie starts looking for new premises. He decides the first place he inspects is perfect, although the price is more than Plant Well can comfortably
afford. Charlie does not think this will be a problem because there is no competition nearby and he expects that profits will recover immediately.
Charlie calls a Board meeting and tells Delta and Eric that moving will solve all the company?s problems and that the property he has seen is perfect for Plant Well. He does not tell them that he
has only looked at this one property. He tells them that they will have to act quickly as there is another interested buyer. He is so enthusiastic that both Delta and Eric agree to the proposal
even though Eric has some doubts, feeling that they are being rushed into making a decision without being given time to consider other alternatives. Delta agrees to the proposal without really
understanding the financial implications.
Plant Well purchases the new premises and moves into them, but because of continuing dry weather, its profits remain low. Eric is becoming worried about his obligations as a director, especially
if Plant Well?s financial position deteriorates any further.
(a) Now advise Eric about any possible liability he may have for insolvent trading under s 588G if Plant Well becomes insolvent.
(b) Advise Delta as to her position in respect of:
i. any breaches of her duty of care; and
ii. any possible liability for insolvent trading under s588G if Plant Well becomes insolvent.
