Guidance Notes for Shareholder Agreements

Shareholders' Agreement Notes

CO.CD.03.07
These Shareholders' Agreement Notes set out matters which are normally dealt with in the documentation produced in relation to joint ventures and other jointly owned companies. The circumstances of each transaction will differ and the list of issues is by no means exhaustive. The purpose is to allow the participants to address the issues raised in fairly broad terms so that the structure can be settled in principle before the documentation is drafted.

These Shareholders' Agreement Notes have been updated to coincide with the release of the new Shareholders' Agreements, and make reference where appropriate to the agreements available from Simply-docs.

These notes contain the following sections:-
1. Documentation
2. The Company
3. Parties to Shareholders' Agreement
4. Corporate Administration
5. Tax
6. Finance
7. Shares
8. Pre-emption
9. Rights of Certain Shareholders
10. Board of Directors
