What rights does Bonsetti have (in most states) as a minority shareholder dissenting to the merger of GVG and Hula
What rights does Bonsetti have (in most states) as a minority shareholder dissenting to the merger of GVG and Hula Boards? In November 2002, Mario Bonsetti and Rico Sanchez incorporated Gnarly Vulcan Gear, Inc. (GVG), to manufacture windsurfing equipment. Bonsetti owned 60 percent and Sanchez owned 40 percent of the corporation’s stock, and both men served on the board of directors. In January 2006, Hula Boards, Inc., owned solely by Mai Jin Li, made a public offer to Bonsetti and Sanchez to buy GVG stock. Hula offered 30 percent more than the market price per share for the GVG stock, and Bonsetti and Sanchez each sold 20 percent of their stock to Hula. Jin Li became the third member of the GVG board of directors. In April 2008, an irreconcilable dispute arose between Bonsetti and Sanchez over design modifications of their popular Baked Chameleon board. Sanchez and Jin Li voted to merge GVG with Hula Boards under the latter name, despite Bonsetti’s dissent. Gnarly Vulcan Gear was dissolved and production of the Baked Chameleon ceased.
