Angela Kirk, the newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of Wakefield Ltd, is considering an investment in the shares of Hobson Ltd. Over the past five years, Hobson Ltd has been very profitable and profits are expected to increase over the next three to four years. The investment would involve purchasing between 5% and 70% of Hobson Ltd’s issued shares. Each share carries one vote at the companies general meeting.
