This answer was rated:

our ltd company has 3 shareholders one with 50% and two with 25% and all three are directors and there is no chairman or managing director, is it possible to remove the directorship of the 50% shareholding director if the other two out vote him two to one in a meeting albeit he would still have his shareholding and would have to be paid his legal dues to redundancy and notice etc.

Buachaill :

1. I regret to say that it is not possible for the two 25% shareholders to outvote the 50% shareholder two to one because all the 50% shareholder has to do is to call a general meeting or emergency meeting and have the votes put to the shareholders. In each situation he will be able to vote his full 50% of the shares, so there will be no possible situation where the two 25% shareholders will be able to outvote him. Essentially, there needs to be agreement between one of the 25% shareholders with the 50% shareholding in order that business get done and the company function properly. But any idea that the two 25% shareholders can get rid of the 50% shareholder and pay him redundancy is fantasy!
