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?
