• Shareholder dispute

Sometimes shareholders have simply had enough. In such cases, the reasons behind this or how long it has been going on or whose ‘fault’ it is, are not really important. The main point is that your company is suffering as a result of the shareholders’ quarrel.

Finding a solution to a dispute

One frequent solution to the dispute is that one or more shareholders throw in the towel, and a division of the company is also a regular occurrence. Such cases give rise to valuation issues. If the parties fail to reach agreement on the price, a register valuator can provide relief.

Besides the price, it is also important to consider the conditions that apply when the parties split up. What will happen to the company? And how should shareholders act towards one another after a transfer or division?

If it is impossible to convert the dispute into a transaction between the parties, at least for the time being, legal proceedings are sometimes inevitable in order to arrive at a solution that is acceptable to all parties.
