(b)that it is undesirable in the interests of shareholders, or potential shareholders, of the investment company with variable capital concerned that it should continue to be authorised; or

(c)without prejudice to sub-paragraph (b), that the company, any of its directors or its depositary—

(i)has contravened any relevant provision;

(ii)in purported compliance with any such provision, has furnished SIB with false, inaccurate or misleading information; or

(d)any matter relating to—

(i)any director of the company; or

(ii)any person who would be such a person as is mentioned in any of sub-paragraphs (a) to (d) of paragraph (2) of regulation 9 if that paragraph applied in respect of a director of the company as it applies in respect of a proposed director.

(3) Before revoking any authorisation order that has come into effect, SIB shall ensure that such steps as are necessary and appropriate to secure the winding up of the company (whether by the court or otherwise) have been taken.

(c)these Regulations;
