A client has received an offer from a competitor to buy them out, only on the basis that they receive 100% of the shares. The company has lost track of a minority shareholder, hasn't been in touch for many years, and old phone numbers/email not recognised, and no answer to mail sent to old address, doesn't appear to be on Social Media. The value of the buyout to the shareholder is £200. Ordinary 1 shares. Nothing in shareholder agreement allow majority shareholder to force sale of minority shares. Is there a way of including their shares, without their express permission? Are there specified legal steps which have to be carried out, and once done, it is possible to go ahead (not sure that sentence makes sense!).
