Get the Operating Agreement of the company. Your father should have a copy. The Agreement should dictate how shares are valuated in a first right of refusal or buyout situation. If the Agreement is silent on this matter, an attorney can walk you through the proper steps in getting a full and fair accounting under the laws of Alabama's Business Entites Code.
