New York business owners know that it just isn’t always possible to see eye-to-eye with everyone all the time. Whether it’s customers, vendors or even partners, people often have different ways of seeing things. And there are other parties that corporations sometimes disagree with, namely their shareholders. While it is often possible to work out disagreements informally through discussion and negotiation, it isn’t always possible all the time.
Last month we told you about a disagreement a theme park owner was having with its shareholders. The shareholders argued that the theme park owner misled them about the impact of some negative publicity that the theme park owner experienced several years ago. The shareholders said that they purchased shares in response to the allegedly misleading comments, and they said they lost money after the true nature of the impact became known and share prices plummeted as a result.
