Company Shares. Where the defendant sought to defend a claim in relation to a share option contained within a share purchase agreement on the basis that he had received an oral assurance that that option would not be exercised and had only been included as a matter of form, the court held, inter alia, that the defendant's case was fanciful and had no real prospect of success. Accordingly, summary judgment on the claim was entered in favour of the claimant.
