Hello, The classic story. No shareholder agreement. 1/3 share each. The other two directors are trying to force me out with their majority. The company is almost 2.5 years old and 3.5 years in the making. The situation: we have a Ltd by guarantee company we all founded (social enterprise) that we trade under, however the majority of our revenue is funnelled through a Ltd company in order to pay ourselves through dividends. We sell our time/services therefore have minimal overheads/assets in the business. Most of the income after tax/expenses is paid out to the three directors as dividends through the Ltd company. We don't earn alot at the moment but there is potential for quite a comfortable living in the near future. We currently hold a number of government contracts, a contract with a FTSE 100 and various other smaller deals. We are one of the only players in a new market and our view is that if we get this right, we have the opportunity to create a national business. Initially when faced with my grievance letter, one of the other directors said we need to call it a day working together, (the architect of this situation) then he offered to resign but has since withdrawn his offer and said he has no intention of resigning. The other director will just follow anything he says. I imagine he will do the same to the other director at some point. They have offered to pay me my current salary until the end of the year in return for resigning and my shares. Clearly that is unacceptable to me, I have counter offered this back but have been turned down, unsurprisingly. The relationship is now untenable so an exit plan is unfortunately required. My options appear to be; a) Employment tribunal /constructive dismissal (I am very confident I will win - likely payment awarded?) b) Buyout - but not at their current offer c) Suing them personally for ultra-varies d) Not accepting their offer and keeping my share e) Accept their offer and walk away having learnt a very expensive lesson Therefore my questions are; 1. Would it be better to simply hang on to my share? 2. What options do they have to not pay me my 1/3 of the profits? I understand they can pay more through PAYE rather than dividends and increase salary to reduce profit/ decide to reinvest. 3. Can they simply shut down the shell company that I have a share in (as nobody is a shareholder of the social enterprise) and open a new shell company to funnel the money through, making my share worthless? 4.What is my best option as I feel this is highly unfair and very very wrong, what would you do in my situation? To add into the mix, yesterday I was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism so will be off work for at least a week if not more. Many thanks in advance for any replies!
