  • Matters relating to board meetings and voting
  • Matters relating to shareholder meetings and voting
  • A set of reserved matters
  • Restrictions on share issuances and share transfers
  • Shareholder undertakings
  • Provisions if a shareholder defaults on the agreement
  • Termination provisions
