What to do in a shareholder conflict?

A partnership that is under tension

In any cooperation, disagreements sometimes arise, even between shareholders. This is unavoidable. Often, these disagreements can be resolved without too many problems and the cooperation can continue as usual. However, this is not always the case. Disagreements, tensions and/or differences of opinion within the company can lead to good relations coming under pressure. This can endanger the continuity of the company.

An objective business valuation can ensure a fairly distributed departure

When conflicts arise between shareholders, the interests of the shareholders, the company and the enterprise can run high. In cases where the conflict has reached such a level that further cooperation is impossible, one (or more) of the shareholders may wish to sell his or her shares. In this case, it is important that the value of these shares is determined in a correct and objective manner. This can best be done by means of an impartialbusiness valuation. In this way, the departing shareholder is sure to receive what he or she is entitled to.

Objective parties can control the emotions from the process
