When can investors sue a company?
Posted on Thursday, May 20th, 2010 at 6:45 pm
When individuals or companies invest in another business, they may expect their invested business to maximize the value of their investment. For public companies, the CEO and board of directors have a fiduciary duty to maximize shareholder value.
Private companies, however, have less of an obligation to maximize investor value. That being said, private companies may be sued for misusing investor funds. For instance, they may be sued for spending investor funds on expenses that are not related to the business.
