BORELLI V. TING FACTS James Henry Ting was formerly the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Akai Holdings Ltd, a Bermudan company originally incorporated in Hong Kong. On 23 August 2000 in Hong Kong, and on 29 September 2000 in Bermuda, Akai Holdings Ltd was ordered to be wound up... In order to raise funds, the Liquidators wished to realize the value of Akai Holdings Ltd's listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Proceedings before the Bermuda Court: By summons dated 2 December 2002 the Liquidators applied to the Bermuda Court to disallow the votes of Blossom Assets Ltd and Costner Holdings Ltd cast at the scheme meeting...
