Modern appraisal statutes are a mess. Although these statutes were originally designed to provide liquidity to minority shareholders after fundamental changes in corporate form, today they are supposed to function more as a check on majority shareholder opportunism. Unfortunately, they do a very poor job of achieving either goal. Delaware, with the nation's most important coporate appraisal statute, bears the burden of trying to reform this remedy to make it more useful.
