In a Delaware close corporation, can 58% of the shareholders

In a Delaware close corporation, can 58% of the shareholders dissolve a company? This is specifically for a close corporation as defined under Delaware Corp code 341. I know under Delaware Corp code 275 the board can call for a vote of shareholders however we have no board. The founders manage the company instead. It also states a unanimous decision by shareholders if the board doesn't call for a vote, but the ones wanting to dissolve only have 58%. So do they have the right to dissolve?

Close Corporation Under Delaware Corp LawCurrently in binding

Close Corporation Under Delaware Corp LawCurrently in binding arbitration. We are under Delaware jurisdiction for a close corporation in which our shareholders agreement states the company is managed by a majority agreement of the four founders. Under delaware law such agreements are allowed and enforceable. However the arbitrator states he doesn't want to harm the business by reversing agreements made in violation of the shareholders agreement so he wants to kick 2 of us out and give us shares instead because he doesn't feel we can work together. However under delaware corp code 352(a)1 it states if company is in a deadlock, we can appoint a custodian or del corp code 353 states we can have appointed a provisional director to make decisions on behalf of the company as a neutral 3rd party. Additionally is it accurate to say under shareholders can't dissolve the company without a 2/3 vote?

Hi, this is regarding a company cc which consists of 3 share

Hi, this is regarding a company cc which consists of 3 share holders, it is a service station with a restaurant on the side of a highway, with great potential for expansion.My dad and my late uncle started the place in the 70s and and as such brought it my other uncle and gave him his share for free. And then brought in my other aunt which she bought her share, so its now 33 percent each a share.The problem is the two have the businesses the service station and the restuarant. And there is no written agreements for any type of lease or anything, they have been there for over 10 years in the businesses, and my father also wants to make a living, so he wants to build a truck stop on the premisis, but they keep sending legal letters with their lawyers telling him to stop because they dont have their permission, and they wont let my father do anything on the place he started.My question is, with no written agreements or anything, do they have the power to stop my father from carying on with his truck stop? they have the restuarant and service station and nobody bothers them.
