Thank you for your question. My name is AJ - I am company solicitor - and I can assist you. Can you provide me with any further information? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. My apologies - do you both have the same class of share? Also what type of investor are you looking for? A bank or a private individual or crowd funding for example?
In theory - it would be difficult for the other shareholder to dilute you without you having some control over the situation - with a 30% shareholding you will always have “pre emption” rights. Any investor is likely to want you to dilute below 25% - because you would have total power to block special resolutions -and this may impact an investors view on how the company is managed. Do you have share certificates for your shares - have they been formally issued?
