Opinion: Antrim Energy – Tabulation Discovery

Antrim’s discovery of a “proxy tabulation error” sent a shiver down the spine of those of us who attend corporate meetings. Resolutions are easier to calculate than oil reserves, but it’s still no game for amateurs. Antrim Energy’s shareholders thought they had resolved to appoint a chairman in December. By Hogmanay the person they thought they had in place had been invited to “resign” due to what was referred to as a “proxy calculation error”. Instead of receiving the reported nearly 80% of the vote he actually received nearer 21%. Unlike for oil reserves, reporting resolutions is not supposed to be a “probable” against “possible” exercise.
