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 on assignment of one of the parties involved, or as an (either or not binding) advice to both parties.
Especially if the client has a weaker information position than the counterparty, 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 experience in these situations, as well as our membership of the Dutch Institute for Register Valuators and registration with the Dutch National Register for Legal Experts result in valuations that can also be used in case of possible legal proceedings.
Our firm offers the knowledge and experience to advise you properly. If you are involved in a buy-out procedure or an offer within the framework of the statutory restrictions on the transfer of shares, as a lawyer, mediator, or party involved, then please call us for an introductory meeting.
