Drafting an MOI
A guide to the provisions relating to Directors

In drafting the Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) for Vector AI, Derick focuses on provisions relating to the board of directors, crucial for the company’s governance and operational efficiency.

He must decide on the board’s composition, balancing the number of directors for diversity and efficiency. The MOI needs to address the inclusion of ex-officio directors, who hold board seats by virtue of their position, ensuring continuity and connection between management and the board while maintaining clear governance and management functions.

Derick also explores appointed directors, with provisions allowing appointments alongside elected directors, as mandated by the Companies Act to comprise at least 50% of the board. The election process, potentially modified by the MOI, typically involves a series of votes, one vote per voting right, and majority support for each candidate.

Additionally, the MOI can stipulate criteria for ineligibility or disqualification of directors, emphasizing the company’s values and operational needs, and specify qualifications for directorship. Finally, the MOI may address temporary vacancies and alternate directors, ensuring board functionality and continuity. This thorough approach in drafting the MOI will significantly influence Vector AI’s governance structure and future direction.
