Mrs Justice Gloster, DBE:
"6. If the Respondents agree in writing with the Applicant a procedure whereby any resolution for the approval of the authorisation and issuance of Shares in connection with the Project Varsity transaction also includes the approval of the authorisation and issuance to the Applicant of the Pre-Emptive Right Shares, with those Shares to be held in escrow to abide the determination of the pending arbitral proceedings, then nothing in this order shall prevent any person taking any step to implement the agreed terms."
"If the case is one of urgency, the court may, on the application of a party, or proposed party, to the arbitral proceedings make such orders as it thinks necessary for the purpose of preserving evidence or assets."
"In any case, the court shall only act if or to the extent that the arbitral tribunal and any arbitral or other institution or person vested with power in that regard has no power or is unable for the time being to act effectively."
