Interpretation of a right of first refusal provision in the articles of association of a B.V.

In a recent case, the District Court Midden-Nederland has ruled in a dispute about a statutory right of first refusal provision in a joint venture in the form of a Dutch private company with limited liability (B.V.) with two shareholders, each holding 50% of the shares. The articles of association of the B.V. included a right of first refusal provision, which stipulated, among other things, that if control of a shareholder changed within the meaning of the Code of Conduct with respect to mergers as adopted by the Dutch Economic and Social Council and this shareholder had direct or indirect control over the joint venture (also as referred to in that Code of Conduct), this shareholder had to offer its shares to the other shareholder.
