Shareholders Agreement

A shareholders agreement sets out the key terms governing the relationship among shareholders. The shareholders’ agreement should set out the following terms:

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