AUSTRALIA: Buderim Ginger shareholders threaten to revolt and unseat board
Directors of Queensland-based Buderim Ginger have clashed with a group of angry shareholders, who have threatened to revolt and unseat the board members at the company's extraordinary meeting on 20 February. Under the lead of former MD John Ruscoe, the dissident shareholders, who together hold 13% of the Buderim Ginger's stock claim that the actions of the company's non-executive directors have caused poor share prices and a lack of dividends.
