When a company wants to issue new shares, it usually needs to get approval from the board of directors first. The company must then offer the new shares to existing shareholders before they can offer them to third parties. This is often referred to as the initial right of refusal or the right of pre-emption. Setting up a new business carries many risks, including the failure of a viable business model, with product/market aptitude, excessive competition, economic downturns, lack of cash flow/track, recruitment risks, delivery delays and technical risks. However, one of the main risks and the most common cause of business failures is shareholder disputes. This article talks about 10 of the most important legal clauses you should insert into your shareholders` agreement. A “shotgun clause” is a method that allows a party to leave a business. It allows one shareholder to offer its shares at any time to the other shareholder(s) at specified price conditions. Other shareholders can either agree to sell their shares at this price, or they can buy shares from shareholders offering at the same price. The advantage of the shotgun clause is that it imposes a fair and appropriate assessment of the shares between the parties if one of the parties wishes to withdraw from the business. The chevrotine clause is risky, because the offering shareholder can “kill” himself; In other words, he can be expelled from the company if the other shareholders decide to buy themselves in exchange. If the shareholders` agreement and the articles of association have been properly prepared, there should be no contradiction between their respective provisions. However, in the event of a conflict, the articles take precedence in principle to the extent that the contrary provision relates to an obligation of the undertaking.

Therefore, unless the company`s obligations are affected, priority is given to the provisions of a shareholders` agreement between shareholders. 4.3 If certain shareholders accept an offer to purchase at least 75% (or 90%?) of the ordinary shares from certain shareholders, all shareholders (including all shareholders who have not accepted the outsider`s offer to purchase) are required to sell all their ordinary shares externally under the same conditions. if the alien wishes to acquire such shares and only if the purchase price corresponds at least to the valuation plan set out in Annex B to this Agreement. Cash call clauses allow shareholders to continue to invest funds in the company and reward shareholders who invest in the company when it is needed. Shareholders should consider the possibility of a cash-call in the event of an investment in a company with regard to their finances and liquidity. A “shotgun clause” is a method that allows a party to leave a business. This is called a shotgun clause, because if you pull the trigger, it could lead to suicide. It works by allowing one shareholder to offer his shares at any time to the other shareholder under specified price conditions. Other shareholders can either agree to sell their shares at this price, or they can buy shares from shareholders offering at the same price.

The advantage of the shotgun clause is that it imposes a fair and appropriate valuation of the shares between the parties, given that the offering shareholder pays that price for the shares or receives that price. If a shareholder fires the shotgun and refuses an offer, the other shareholders can accept it and use that offer to buy the offering shareholder. The offering shareholder has thus “killed” himself and caused his own exit from the company A shareholders` agreement may include restrictions on the geographical area in which the company can operate, as well as restrictive agreements preventing a shareholder from competing with the company. . . .
