Product Description: Majority shareholders often wish to act in ways that may disadvantage the minority. For example, it may be in the majority's interest to obtain complete control of a company by acquiring the minority's shares. Alternatively, the majority may want to increase their control without expropriatingthe minority's shares. The majority may wish, for example, to exclude the minority from participation in future rights issues. In these kinds of situations, however, there is likely to be considerable uncertainty as to the risks that the exercise of the majority's power will be open to challenge bythe minority. By providing distinct practical advice this book will assist majority shareholders in exercising their power, to enable them to avoid successful challenges brought by disgruntled minorities.This book considers, firstly, different ways in which majority shareholders may exercise their power to expropriate shares from minority shareholders. It then analyses each of these methods and suggests ways of reducing the risks that such actionsof these methods may be challenged by disaffectedminorities. Methods of expropriation included in this section include: the introduction of expropriation provisions into a company's articles of association; schemes of arrangement under s 425; and compulsory acquisition of shares under ss 428-430. Further, the authors consider ways in which majority shareholders may control minority shareholders without expropriating shares from them. Topics in this section include the majority's power to vary rights attached to the minority's shares and to exclude the minority from participation in rightsissues. Finally, the book discusses a variety of other topical issues that are relevant to majority control, for example, the extent of the majority's power to ratify wrongs they have committed against the company and the majority's power to limit dissent at company meetings. This new work will provide an invaluable reference guide to anyone advising majority shareholders. It is the first of it kind to concentrate offering practical advice to majority shareholders on ways of minimising the risk that their actions are being challenged.

After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
