Resolved Question:

There are 3 directors in a company. If one of the director (Director A) (being a 20% shareholder) is not collaborative with the other 2 directors (Director B and C). Would Director B and C be able to vote out and remove Director A? Given that Director A is withholding information, collecting Rent from the company owned property himself without consent to the other two directors.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.

Is there any Directors agreement?
Alex

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
There are no director agreements. Also, communication attempts has been made to Director A with no responses.
Expert:  Ash replied 7 months ago.

B & C would be able to vote out A yes. There needs to be a resolution and then voting on it at a meeting.

That's it. So yes you can vote out.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Can Shareholder block the decision to of the Director's voting?Director A is a 20% shareholder, Where the 80% shareholder is recently deceased and a probate is on process and not yet granted. Would Director A be able to block the decision with the absence of the 80% shareholder?Director B is the receiver and probate executor of the 80% share, however without the probate granted, can Director B act as the 80% shareholder?
Expert:  Ash replied 7 months ago.

No - because the majority would rule. A only holds 20%.

All you need is a majority on the day. B can only act as 80% shareholder if there was an agreement to do so, which is why I asked about Directors agreements.

Does that clarify? Alex

Finally just to clarify. Majority as in Director B and C to vote in the general meeting, and Director A do not get 2 votes being the director and the shareholder at the same time?
Expert:  Ash replied 7 months ago.

No.

Thank you for the clarification.

Morning, I would like to come back to this question before going ahead to write up the EGM letter. I have done some research and some states that only shareholders can vote and not the director in the EGM meeting. In my case only director A, the 20% shareholder would be the only person in that meeting who can vote? It would be good to get clarification on that.
