Shareholder buy-outs can be triggered due to a variety of reasons, such as retirement, relocation, breakdown in director relations, or simply a shareholder seeking to exit. The process can vary in complexity, dependent on whether the buy-out is amicably agreed or disputed between the shareholders involved.
