KICKING & SCREAMING: TECHNIQUES TO "SQUEEZE OUT MINORITY STAKES," 1 CLE hour
 

Minority ownership stakes are very common in closely held companies.  Someone may have taken a minority stake an inventor to help fund the company’s growth.  Or someone may have provided management, sales or other highly valuable services to the company in exchange for a minority stake.  Or a former majority stake owner may have slowly sold down his or her stake.  In this and a multitude of other ways, minority stakes appear in companies.  But they all come at a price – and the price is often most acutely felt when the majority stake owner wants to push out the minority stake owners.  When the company’s underlying arrangements were not carefully planned for this eventuality, strife and dispute – and potentially litigation costs – arise. This program will provide you with a real world guide to structuring minority stake investments in anticipation of the majority stake owner eventually forcing the buyout of minority stake owners.
