In re Osiris Insurance Ltd: ChD 1991

The turn-out at the creditors meeting was low in number (35 out of 971) but creditors with claims worth about 41% of the total value attended the meeting.
Held: Neuberger J said: ‘It is true that the numbers of those who voted was pretty small compared to the number of those entitled to vote, but that is by no means unusual in the context of votes at meetings called pursuant to s 425. In any event, that does not call into question the fact that not a single scheme creditor thought it right to vote against the scheme. Furthermore, if one looks at the value of the scheme claims held by those who voted, they did represent a substantial proportion of those entitled to vote.’
