Hi I am a Director in a company with 5 shareholders, also

Customer Question


I am a Director in a company with 5 shareholders, also directors. 2 directors are not delivering what was agreed. Essentially they are delivering a website and app but looks like only a website will be available. We will have to look elsewhere for the app development and probably go to an investor who would want a share in the company.

Can we:

a. remove their shares, i.e., by half as only delivering half a product


b. dilute the shares by a new share issue. Assuming this is the course of action can we dilute only their shares?

We have a simple shareholders agreement but do have a clause that allows a majority shareholding to invoke special measures...will that cover their shares?

Kind regards
