Full text not available from this repository.
Considers whether majority shareholders may, by altering a company's articles of association, force the compulsory transfer of minority shares. Reviews the existing authorities on the alteration of articles and compulsory transfer, including the Chancery Division ruling in Constable v Executive Connections Ltd and the Australian High Court decision in Gambotto v WCP Ltd. Explains the nature of the contract made by shareholders, the bundle of rights shareholders acquire, and the default position of a shareholder's permanent investment until voluntary exit, unless overridden either by the parties or by statute.
