- Some people point to a case in the United States where a judge mentioned this theory in their opinion. That was dicta, not a holding, and that case was in Michigan, not Delaware. If it wasn't in Delaware, it's basically irrelevant when it comes to large corporations. Additionally, there is plenty of dicta in Delaware that says otherwise.
- Also, I forgot to mention that there are plenty of prominent corporations that have not yet turned profit even once and would be in big trouble if that were legally required. Tesla, anyone?
