Sometimes a majority shareholders attempts to push a minority shareholder out of “his” company. There is a broad variety of reasons that majority shareholders have to rather see the minority shareholder go. It may be that there is only a disconnect on a personal level or it may be that the majority shareholder has no other motive than to cut off the minority shareholder from the profits generated by the company. Also conflicting visions on the future of the company may have developed.
