Statement prepared by S. R. Raton, Second Vier Prasidont,

regarding the transfer of the company’s founders shares fron Paris

to New York City, and submitted to the Nireetors of the Bury pean

GOe at a meting hela January 5th. 18887" oct

FIRST. We have founders shares in three di fferent

companios, and dirsctions have been heretofore given, as pra =~

scribed by the Roard, for having all these founders shares sent to

the of five of ths company in Ney York City. I hava ox chan ged

ietiare and cablograns with Mn Railey and Mr Batchelor, since Mn

Railey’s return to Paris, | dns isting that the rounders ical in

all these Gass companies should. be at once sent ones

In reply to my request as above, a question has haa

5 : . / os raised touching a clause in the statutes of the Company Continan~

talise This question I will state at length below.


Tt relates to a “certain portion of the parts of founder

in the Company Continentale, namely,

As soon as this question was raised,

20 per eentum thereof, :

and it was claimed that this

20 per centum of the said founders shares in that Company could’

not, with safety to our interests, be forwarded to us, T Te questod

Nr. Railey to at onee send the balanes of the founders ineluding :

those in all thres of the Companies.

That has not bean done,

and I judge from a cable from Nr Bailey, reseived yesterday, that

a‘new question has arisen, which must also be settled bafurs any

e 4 of “the founders will be sant here.

to below.’

This also will be referred ©




Hr Bailey states in his letter tu me of Necember 20the, that Mn Batchelor complsted the praparation of the various receipts on Decsmbor 19the, and that the delay still arising, touching the sending of the foundersshares to this city, relating only to the question of the 20 com aiming Rut in a latter from Mr Bailey, dated Devember 23rd., just received, he renews a sugpastion which he has frequently made before, and which he discussed with our Dirvetors when ho was hers during the Summer, that all the points of foundar, ineluding the 20 per ventum, should be deposited in a Trust Gompany, with an agreement, on the part of our Go., to hold them thus in deposit during thecex in tenes of the nompagnns Continantale. He doas not state whether he thinks that Trust Co. should’ ba a company on this’ side of the water, or in Paris. Pussibly, I think, a Trust Go. in this city would answer as well as one in Parise at that same letter Mr. Bailey states that tho Direetors of his Company were to mest that very afternoon to act upoun ivy telegram of December 20the, insisting that the founders shares be sent here at once, even if Mr. Bailey thought i+ hast to retain 20 per eantum of the same in Paris; that at least the rest vf them, aside from said 20 P.G. should be at once sent eke:

Kr. Bailey still further states in his letter of December 23rde that if the founders’ shaves are sent here it, will probably be necussatTy that, as a preliminary, a transfer should be made %9

c :

the Gompany Continentals of the foundation Edgson patents.

Just what is meant by this T do not understand. All the natants

3 have been al ready assigned to his Gempany, and IT therefore do not understand what is meante Yos torday I received a eable from Mr Railey as follows: “Gompany considers -transfer of patents neec- ' esSarye Am hastening all possiblo. Wave written.” T con- clude from this cable that the transfar of patents which Nr Railey f ' peters tu in his latter of Decombor 23rd., and whieh T hava just Mentioned, is a condition the Gonpany Gontinentale seen to im Poss befure letting the rounders shares eae to this side of the Wabere Honsequently there secits to be Just now two obstacles in

the way of having the founders sent here!. first, thera is the questiun raised regarding the 20 per centum of the barts of fomme der of the Company Continentale; and, second, there is this new question, which I do not yat understand, and which Ur Railey

1 ' cables yesterday he has written about, that ssems to involve a

: ' condition preesdent which imist ba performed on ‘the part of our Company before our friends in Paris will allow the founders shares to be sent over here. What that condition Pracndent, this to be performed by us, may be T do not know. Tt seems to relate to the transfer by our Company of certain fundaiontal Patents’ on lamps, dynamos &c. A power of attorney was exeented one year

ago last Decembor both by Mn Edison and our Company to all the”

countries in Eurvupe belonging to our Coupany, whereby these pa~ ten$s wers transferred. So it is difficult for me to understand

what ‘this new point just raised is.

SECOND. What is this question of 20 ner centum

ics | P,

sR ee cguiecas cotmpomee


4 The bast way for me to reply to-this question is to reeite tho facts as they have heen developed in racent aaneeseineenGe,

Mr. Railey wrote me, -December-G6the;—that Hn Porges, in connection with delivering to our eompany the parts of founder, had called attention to a clause in the Fifth Articla of the Statutes of the Company Cont inentala. That clanse provides that wa may Object to any amalgamation of the Gompany Continent ale with other companies, and to any cession or transfer of the ass~

ets or any part thereof, so leng, and only so Lonft, as our company

continues to hold at least one fifth (20 per cant) of its Company

GUORLLNEANTaALS rounders sharwss--—-rne Language useaq~— in snus —conmye~————. tion in the translation of the statutes (it was made by Mr Lawson) is that this veto power is thus given to us su long as wo “nomi~ nally” hold at least said one fifth. But Mr Railey in his letter of December Oth. says that the word*nominally” is not a proper trunelabien; and states that the French word really means “ragis= tered shareholders” The "rench word is <nBininaetoamapee

So long as wa hold these founders shares, wa can not only object to amalgamation, but we can also object to any gene tracts for the sale of territory, and to any licenses being made without our consente This’ is provided for in the Othe article of the contract of November l5the

It would seem from Mn Railey’s letters that the eer tificates of the parts of founders belonging to us had been made

out to the order of “hearer? It would further seam that when it

ste eee re

a i


was Proposed to change at least 20 per cantum of thuss founders

shares, and have them made out to the order of this company, in-

stead of to bearer, avn that did not satisfy Nn Porges and his - assoc ia tySe Tt would further seen that what they demand is that this 20 per centum of these shares should he deposited in Sau Gos, Gyan though they ba made out to the order of this company, with dirgetions tu that Trust Gonpany to collect the dividends

and pay them to our company here; this deposit to continue as

long as the Company Sontinantale exists, or until ve ary willing

to forfeit the rights given us pursuant to the’ statutas of the

contract hove ra ferred to. Mr Railey recommends in his letter of Deceltber Gthe that this 20 per eentum of these shares should be thus deposited with the Banque Centrale, which is Hn Porgrs? bank in Paris.

Wea have been of the opinion here in New York, that if it becolies neesssary to place this 20 per centum of these shares in deposit, the deposit should be made in some Trust Co., here in Now York city and not in Paris. Ve ought to have the founders shares here at home, where the headquarters of our company is. There are some very gool reasons why this should be so, which T wld Hoe stop to vive in this connectione Referring to this visow of the matter in Bailey states, in his letter of December 30th. that he thinks per haps Hr. Porges and associates would admit that the requirements of the case might be met if these shares were

deposited in a Trust Company in New York city, instead of in Paris,


G provided a formal engagement be entered into by our company, pro=

porly legalized by the "ranch consul, also by the Trust Company in

this city, to give iltmdiate advise to the Conipany Continéntale in

vase we should at any time withdraw these parts of founder fron the custody of the Trust Gonnany. Mr. Railey states that at the timo

he was writing that letter of Necemher 20th. he was discussing

with Mr Porges the forma of arrangemente Tam in reeeipt of a

letter Crom Hn Batley dated December B3rde, in which to my sure

prise, he awakes no reference to what the result of the discussion

touching Sush arrangslMent WwaSe So I an in entire ignorance. |

“THIRD. In addition to this question of the 20 per SESS ecentum of the fuunders shares in the Sompany Guntinentalo, there is a collateral question raised, as to whether all of onr founders

shares, in all three of the companies, should not ve tied up at



ast for say LO years, by being deposited in a Trust Co. pra fare ably in this eity. Mn 3ailev’. argues very strongly in Cavor of thise Ya thinks it would give the shares of the eompany per- neva value over there He doss not state whether the holders . of the balanes of the Counders shares would be willing to place their shares in deposit in the sale waye Probably thay would note Certainly Messrs. Puskas & Bailey would not, as they will probably nead the mone ye That at any rate is a fair presumptions

Our @uropean hight Co. here, has but ons assett, theso folinders sharese It rests with the Board of Directors to sell |

these founders shares at any time. The powar therefore rests

7 with the Buard by ons simple stroke of business to dispose of tho


entire assets of our Suropean commany here. That power, even the possi bildty of tts being- oxoreised,—tondse—no—doubt—to _dapraciats the value of the stock of our furopman conmnany in this city. but if it is known that these assets are permanently tied up, by being deposited in a Trust Co. in this eityv, under a formal apres tient exeeuted with the Paris Go. the tendaeney would he to give emfidense in the minds of the publie to the shares of our com- pany here. This is ln Railev’s line of arpument.

FOURTH The qusstions now for our Roard to decide are as follows! pee te we ne ce ne tte Aa eee eit nee HE ce Sime redeem enemmmamanthl: ene na cee

PTRST. Shall we insist upon all the founders being sont here immediately save and except the 20 per cantum of the Company Gontinentale.

SROOND. Regarding the said 20 per ecentum of the found~ crs shares of the Company Continentale, shall we deposit them in a Trust Sompany in Now York Gity (provided Mr Porses? point is insisted upon by himself and associates) or shall we deposit thon in Paris?

THIRD. Shall we enter into an agreement, to which the Trust So. shall be a party, that we will not withdraw the sharg thus deposited during the continuation of the Company Continentala, without their consent? Or shall we reserve the right to withdraw them at any time, provided we are willing to sacrifices the rights

conferred by the contract and statutes, so long as we hold thesa
