BetOnSports PLC Shareholders May Sue the Company
In our continuing coverage of the BetOnSports case it has been reported that shareholders in London are now considering taking legal action against the company's advisors.
The shareholders are reportedly unhappy that the history of the company's founding member, Gary Kaplan, was not made clear at the time the company when public two years ago.
BetonSports PLC, however, insists that as Kaplan was not a director of the company and thus it was under no obligation reveal his past transgressions.
The company parted with chief executive David Carruthers following his arrest last month in the US on charges of racketeering, conspiracy and fraud.
The termination of his contract is understood to have been part of a wider campaign to distance BetonSports from Kaplan, as Carruthers was the only member of the present board to have had a connection with the business before its flotation on AIM in July 2004.
