  • acted in the name of the company without authority;
  • acquiesced in carrying on of the company’s business despite knowing that it was being conducted recklessly;
  • had been a party to a fraudulent act or omission by the company; or
  • had been a party to publishing false and/ or misleading financial statements
  • at a meeting failed to vote against certain matters.
