Standard voting rules are one way the new law can affect you and your LLC. However, the new law introduced many changes to the voting rights of members that existed under the previous law. We recommend that you establish a written enterprise agreement or review your existing enterprise agreement to ensure that the standard voting rules for members under the New Act do not have an unintell effect on you or your LLC. Our team is on hand to discuss the impact that standard New Act voting rights can have on your LLC and guide you through all necessary decisions. The appeal body`s decision was based on two critical findings of preaching. First, because the enterprise agreement „hid the issue of the removal of an officer,“ the court is required to „seek, outside the provisions of the enterprise agreement, a process that governs the withdrawal of the LLC manager.“ Second, because the enterprise agreement „does not otherwise provide for the issue of the removal of an officer, it is clear that . . . . Section 17704.07 (c) (5) regulates the conduct of the parties with respect to the sending of an administrator.“ The Court of Appeal was not asked to allow an interim decision on the issue of removal to be stagnated, as the appeal was brought procedurally following the granting of an application for an interim stay. However, it proposed the „more reasonable“ interpretation of the voting provision, which should seriously jeopardize the chances of sparber succeeding in remand. If a minority member does not have the right to accept the transfer of the shares of a majority member, the minority member will attempt to negotiate a „tag along“ right in which the minority member can sell its shares under the same conditions as the majority member. Similarly, if the majority owner wishes to sell, a majority member may have the opportunity to „attract“ minority members during a sale.
Minority members should seek proportionate consideration and try to avoid liability for violations of the sale agreement, over which the minority member has no desire to control. Drag-along provisions should be carefully reviewed to ensure that they cannot be used by the majority to avoid consent requirements. The inability of a minority member to finance a call for capital can have serious consequences on the interests of the minority member. Enterprise agreements that provide for dilution of the interests of the defaulting member to remedy the situation (a reduction in the defaulting member`s interest in the LLC) are often based on the dilution of the principal relative accounts or the capital paid in. Once the value of the business has been revalued, dilution on both bases does not take into account the defaulting member`s share of the company`s „equity. A simple approach, in which each member has equal voting rights, regardless of the investments they have invested in the company, can make voting simple and simple. However, if the LLC has an equal number of members, this approach may result in related voices. If related or blocked votes are possible, the LLC`s enterprise agreement should also specify how the decision will ultimately be resolved. This could mean getting a referee or a neutral third party as a Tiebreaker. Some transfers may be unavoidable, for example. B those that result from death, divorce or bankruptcy.
