This paper analyses the corporate contract from the perspective of the Malaysian Companies Act 1965, s. 33.
Section 33(1) of the Companies Act 1965 has been described as a “contract of the most sacred character.” The wording of s 33 is in pari materia with s 20 of the British Companies Act 1948. It originally appeared in the British Companies Act 1856 which substituted the memorandum and articles for the Deed of Settlement.
