The limited liability company is not only the most popular type of company based on the amount of entries in the commercial register, but also based on the numbers of insolvencies. While the reasons herefore are manifold, the process remains mostly the same. Loss accumulation over several years leads to the severe shortage of equity, which is followed by a liquidity crisis of the company. While the liquidity crisis is the last phase the company reaches, it is the first one that has to be overcome. Providing new capital can be achieved in several different ways. However, most suitable for financial recovery is the unique combination of a capital reduction and increase. This so called capital cut is the standard tool used for financial recovery, which is why it is theoretically discussed in the first part of the thesis. Another challenge in this regard is the high time pressure during the liquidity crisis. As the company is a melting pot of different views and opinions of various shareholders, it has to be discussed whether uncooperative shareholders can be forced to vote in favour of the application of the capital cut. There are two possibilities on how to enforce the positive vote of the unwilling shareholders: First the duty of loyalty and second the additional contribution obligation based on § 1184 section 2 of the Austrian civil code (ABGB). The second part of this thesis analyses both options and evaluates if the shareholders are obliged to a positive vote. With regard to the duty of loyalty, two main decisions of the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) are interpreted. Concerning the contribution obligation, the above named paragraph is a rule for companies constituted under civil law. Thus, this part of the thesis further examines the subsidiary application as well as its implications on the capital cut of the limited liability company.
