(Chancery Division; Blackburne J; 23 March 2006)
A minority shareholding in a company, even one where the extent of the minority was slight (one share in the instant case) was to be valued for what it was, a minority shareholding. Short of a quasi-partnership or some other exceptional circumstance, a minority discounted rate had to be applied when valuing the shares for a buy-out ordered by the court under s 459 of the Companies Act 1985.
