Chapter 004 : PROFESSIONAL CORPORATIONS

Subchapter 003 : Shares

(Cite as: 11 V.S.A. § 834)
  • § 834. Acquisition procedure

    (a) If shares must be acquired under section 833 of this title, the professional corporation shall deliver a written notice to the executor or administrator of the estate of its deceased shareholder, or to the disqualified person or transferee, offering to purchase the shares at a price the corporation believes represents their fair value as of the date of death, disqualification, or transfer. The offer notice must be accompanied by the corporation's balance sheet for a fiscal year ending not more than 16 months before the effective date of the offer notice, an income statement for that year, a statement of changes in shareholder equity for that year, and the latest available interim financial statement, if any.

    (b) The disqualified person or the executor or administrator of the estate of a deceased shareholder has 30 days from the effective date of the notice to accept the corporation's offer or demand that the corporation commence a proceeding under section 835 of this title to determine the fair value of the disqualified person's or the estate's shares. If the disqualified person or the executor or administrator of the estate of a deceased shareholder accepts the offer, the corporation shall make payment of the shares within 60 days from the effective date of the offer notice (unless a later date is agreed on) upon the disqualified person's or the executor or administrator of the estate of a deceased shareholder's surrender of shares to the corporation.

    (c) After the corporation makes payment for the shares, the disqualified person or the estate of a deceased shareholder has no further interest in them. (Added 2001, No. 77 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
