The articles of incorporation may restrict the transferability of registered shares. Thereby, the determination of the price is often an issue that results in disputes. Contacting an independent and expert valuator can contribute to reaching a solution that is acceptable for all parties. The valuation can be carried out on assignment of one of the parties involved, or as an (either or not binding) advice to both parties.
Especially if parties do not have an equal information position, which is often the case for an inactive minority shareholder, it is of great importance that the valuation is carried out by a valuator with sufficient business insight.
Our firm has broad experience regarding valuation matters within the framework of the statutory restriction of transfer of shares. We act as independent experts, often appointed by the judiciary, but also as party consultant.
The membership of our partners with the Dutch Institute for Register Valuators and registration with the Dutch National Register for Legal Experts guarantee an adequately carried out expert survey. Please call us for an introductory meeting.
