Put Option in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Saad Investments Company Ltd (in Official Liquidation and Acting by Its Joint Official Liquidators) v Maan Abdulwahed Abdulmajeed Al-Sanea
    • Queen's Bench Division (Commercial Court)
    • 14 October 2011

    The value of SICL's equity portfolio was reported to have decreased as a result of the global deterioration of equity markets. To limit its exposure to equity market volatility a portion of its equity portfolio was hedged with equity put options. This meant that a minimum value would be maintained in the balance sheet for the equities hedged with put options so that in the event of declining share prices the balance sheet value would not decline.

  • Abbott v Philbin (Inspector of Taxes)
    • House of Lords
    • 21 June 1960

    I think that the conferring of a right of this kind as an incident of service is a profit or perquisite which is taxable as such in the year of receipt, so long as the right itself can fairly be given a monetary value, and it is no more relevant for this purpose whether the option is exercised or not in that year than it would be if the advantage received were in the form of some tangible form of commercial property.

  • Snook v London and West Riding Investments Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 17 January 1967

    I reprehard that, if it has any meaning in law, it means acts done or documents executed by the parties to the "sham" which are intended by them to give to third parties or to the Court the appearance of creating between the parties legal rights and obligation different from the actual legal rights and obligations(if any)which the parties intend to create.

  • Criterion Properties Plc v Stratford UK Properties LLC and Others
    • Chancery Division
    • 27 March 2002

    In my judgment, therefore, what Belmont and Akindele decide for present purposes is that actual knowledge of circumstances which make the payment a misapplication is sufficient to bind the conscience of the recipient. On my analysis of the essential nature of the second supplementary agreement that, however, is not this case.

  • Johnson v Gore Wood & Company (A Firm)
    • House of Lords
    • 14 December 2000

    That is to adopt too dogmatic an approach to what should in my opinion be a broad, merits-based judgment which takes account of the public and private interests involved and also takes account of all the facts of the case, focusing attention on the crucial question whether, in all the circumstances, a party is misusing or abusing the process of the court by seeking to raise before it the issue which could have been raised before.

    To bring his own claim in such circumstances would, in my opinion, amount to an abuse of the process of the Court.

  • F & C Alternative Investments (Holdings) Ltd v Barthelemy and another (No 3)
    • Chancery Division
    • 28 October 2011

    In this regard I particularly emphasise the importance for my reasoning of factor (d) (award of costs on an indemnity basis). In my view, where a party has acted in the course of litigation in a way that attracts an order of costs against them to be assessed on an indemnity basis, that is a good indicator that that party is to be taken to have assumed to a particularly extensive degree the risk of continuing with the litigation in question.
