If the parties are unable to agree on the value within 30 days of the appointment of the deceased member`s personal representative, the surviving members and the personal representative must select a qualified expert within the next thirty days. The appraisers so selected must endeavour to determine the value of the interest held by the deceased at the time of death solely on the basis of their assessment of the total value of the assets of the enterprise and the amount that the deceased would have received if the assets of the enterprise had been sold on that date for an amount equivalent to their fair value, and the proceeds (after payment of all the company`s obligations) would have been distributed. in the manner provided for in Section 8. The valuation should not take into account and expect the sale of a minority stake in the company. In the event that the evaluators cannot agree on the value within 30 days of the selection, both evaluators must select a third expert within thirty days. The value of the deceased`s stake in the company and the purchase price will be the average of the two closest valuations. This amount is final and binding on all parties and their respective successors, transferee beneficiaries and representatives. The costs and expenses of the third expert as well as all the expenses and expenses of the expert which are retained by the estate of the deceased member but which are not paid, are deducted from the purchase price paid for the deceased member`s participation in the company. The fact is that company agreements are used to replace the legal provisions on delay and to define the rights and obligations of the company and its members.
In the absence of a company agreement, limited liability companies are obliged to rely on legal provisions of delay, articles of association and even oral or tacit agreements based on conduct. Often, the combination of different relevant documents (formal and informal) and oral or tacit agreements can create conflicting provisions and uncertainties about a member`s rights or obligations. A company agreement serves as a means of combining the relevant documents of the limited liability company into a contract between the members and the company. Corporate agreements provide current and future members with security and a way to ensure that members` expectations are protected and recalled. 8.5.3 The sale of the deceased member`s interest in the company takes place in the office of the company on a date fixed by the company, no later than 90 days after the agreement with the personal representative of the estate of the deceased member on the fair value of the deceased member`s interest in the company; provided, however, that, if the purchase price is determined by expert opinions in accordance with point 8.5.2, the closing shall be carried out 30 days after the final valuation and the purchase price. If no personal representative has been appointed within sixty days of the death of the deceased member, the surviving members have the right to request and appoint a personal representative. . . .
