MBKS Co. Ltd. v. Reddy, 300, 2007

In an action challenging whether certain actions by defendant constituted a cancellation of shares, summary judgment for plaintiffs is affirmed where: 1) defendant failed to make a prima facie showing that a 1996 distribution agreement was a preexisting valid and enforceable agreement to transfer plaintiffs-companies' shares; and 2) the Court of Chancery correctly concluded that defendant's action amounted to a cancellation of stock followed by the issuance of new shares to different shareholders.
