Specialist graphite producer Tirupati Graphite says its directors have offered to meet with shareholders who have requested a general meeting be held to allow shareholders to vote on the removal of three directors from the company’s board. The company, which has operations in Madagascar and Mozambique and is listed in London, on April 26 reported having received a letter from Walpole St Andrews Nominees, on behalf of a group of underlying shareholders holding, in aggregate, about 5.8% of Tirupati’s issued ordinary share capital.
