HYPOTHETICAL ILAC QUESTION: (20 marks)
Paris, Vienna and Sydney are sisters and directors of a company called Milton Motels Pty Ltd (“Milton”)
which owns and operates a chain of successful motels around Australia. Milton is a Brisbane based
company which was originally established by the girls’ grandparents in 1960 and has been run by the
Milton family since that time. The sisters took over as directors of the company when their parents retired
and resigned as directors of the company in 2015.
On 1 November 2017 at the company’s monthly meeting, the sisters decided that the company they
currently hire to launder the motel linens is becoming too expensive, and they should find a cheaper option.
Vienna suggests that they employ a company called Dodgy Brothers Cleaners Pty Ltd (“Dodgy Brothers”)
instead. Vienna tells her sisters that she has heard good things about Dodgy Brothers. Vienna does not tell
her sisters that her husband and her brother-in-law are directors of Dodgy Brothers. The sisters vote on
the matter and unanimously agree that Dodgy Brothers will be hired to launder the motel linens.
Paris is responsible for overseeing the company accounts, however she is more interested in travelling the
world than running the company. Paris returns to Brisbane after a 6 month trip to Hawaii and notices that
the company’s accounts have been overdrawn for the last 2 months. She contacts Milton’s Chief Financial
Officer, Nikki, who confirms that Milton is unable to pay its debts. Nikki tells Paris that she’s tried to get in
touch with her for the past 2 months, but Paris has not returned her calls. Paris decides that the company
can easily make more money if they refurbish their motels because they can attract more customers. Paris
hires painters to repaint the exteriors of all the Milton motels around Australia for a total cost of $500,000.
During a recent business trip, Sydney befriends a successful businessman named Norman. Norman tells
Sydney that he works for a company called Bright Ideas Ltd (“Bright Ideas”) which manufactures light
fittings that can be controlled by the human voice. He tells her that they have just signed a very lucrative
contact with the Bates Hotel chain in the United States to install their new voice controlled lights in all the
Bates Hotel rooms and that Bright Ideas is bound to make “loads of money”. Sydney is so impressed by
what she hears that she immediately uses her own money to buy shares in Bright Ideas.
Nikki has now become aware of the above facts and has asked for your advice as to whether Paris, Vienna
and Sydney have breached any of the civil penalty provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). Using
only the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and common law cases, advise Nikki using the ILAC method as of
today’s date.
Note: Do NOT discuss s184 Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) as part of your answer.
