    I am one of three company directors of a Pty Ltd company. We wish to issue new shares to new members and want to know if we can do this without calling a members meeting. The directors all own shares. One of the members of is deceased and the shares are in escrow and the other shares are issued to his family trust now managed by the deceased member's wife who has no interest in the company.

    We wish to bring in new capital which will dilute all members equally.

    No

    Doesn't impact first answer.

    Also check your member's share agreement in case there are special provisions relating to issue rights..
