How you will split the $15,000 left in the investment?
In the absence of a structured legally binding agreement, there were no contingencies set in place incase of an exit or termination of the partnership. This should have been planned ahead of time. As far capital distribution goes, at the beginning of the partnership, we put $25000 and the chefs put $10,000 plus $10,000 adding up to $45,000 for 100% of the shares. Each share is worth $450; therefore we own 55.5% of the company while chefs own $45.5%. Now we have $15,000 left to be split.

Also capital is needed for our new venture, in which we are looking forward in investing in; therefore we should only give them $3,000 and keep the $12,000. In order to get them agree on this distribution, we should use the kitchen equipment as a negotiation factor. We can not utilize the kitchen equipment in our flower shop, but it is essential for the chefs.
