Cited extensively, O'Neal and Thompson's Oppression of Minority Shareholders and LLC Members shows how to take appropriate steps to protect minority shareholder interests using remedies, tactics, and maneuvers sanctioned by state and federal law. It clarifies the underlying cause of squeeze-outs and suggests proven arrangements for avoiding them.
Written by two of the foremost authorities on the subject, this work examines:
- The effect of Federal Securities Rule 10b-5 as a regulator on proposed mergers and other squeeze-out transactions
- Application of private causes of action under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)
- The extent to which shareholders prejudiced by a merger should have rights other than the appraisal remedy provided by the dissenter's rights statutes
- The growing judicial acceptance of shareholders' reasonable expectations as a standard guide for resolving shareholder disputes
