I currently own a small stake of stock (in my 401K) for a company that may be getting ready to be taken private in a leveraged buy out. What happens to current shareholders in that situation? Will we be compelled to give up their shares?

No one can compel you to sell your shares but it's usually the right choice. You don't want to be an orphan shareholder in a privately run company.
