To provide for an out of the court settlement, Kate proposes a greenmail offer to Larry which will be a win-win for both the parties, but it eventually gets declined.
Unable to reach a settlement, Larry and Jorgy decide to leave the judgment upon the shareholders by calling for an Annual general meeting and having a proxy fight.
During the AGM, Jorgy appeals and tries to sway the shareholders with his heartfelt speech where he claims of caring more for the employees and their loyalties to his company rather than money. He ridicules the concepts of maximizing shareholder wealth and says that a company is far more than its stock price.
But, Larry becomes successful in convincing the shareholders about the benefits of a takeover and how he can provide them with a very good price for their shares. In the end, the proxy voting is won by Larry, giving him the controlling interest in the company and leaving Jorgy feeling betrayed.
