extraordinary resolution
A type of resolution under the Companies Act 1985, which largely ceases to exist from 1 October 2007 (on implementation of certain provisions of the Companies Act 2006), other than in relation to existing extraordinary resolution requirements in a company's memorandum or articles or in a contract (such as a shareholders' agreement). An extraordinary resolution must be passed by a majority of not less than three-quarters of members or their proxies (proxy), at a general meeting of which notice specifying the intention to propose the resolution as an extraordinary resolution has been given.
