We both own a company. There is no shareholders agreement. The shareholder that wants out but has said that she will leave if I give her £20k now and also basically 33% of any profit I make on sale (the formula is irrelevant and profits are being calculated on good years). The demands are unreasonable as the business is struggling and a payment of £20k for her share was very generous. I am thinking of signing her demands, handing her £20k and then selling the business to my husband for a pound so all she will get is 33p. Is this possible?
