I have 20% of a company and I've put my notice in to leave. Is my only option to let the company buy my shares back or can I sell them to staff or a third party.

I've attached the agreement

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

Yes you can sell to a third party. The agreement does not prevent you from doing this.

But you have to go through the whole disposal notice procedure.

However in the answer is yes, you can sell to a third party.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today Please?
