SHAREHOLDER’S AGREEMENT WITH DEADLOCK & DRAG ALONG CLAUSE


WHEN TO USE THIS DOCUMENT

 A shareholder’s agreement is an agreement between the shareholders in a company. It is a very important agreement because it allows the shareholders to agree certain very important aspects about their shares and the company and how it is run. Every company should have a shareholder’s agreement.

 Shareholders are investors into a company and a shareholder’s agreement allows them to set down basic details relating to the running of the company. For example, the agreement can decide what the directors can do when running the company and can control what can be done unless shareholders agree (take out loans etc).

 This agreement also has a deadlock clause. Generally this type of clause is inserted to explain what can be done if a deadlock occurs. A deadlock occurs when you have a situation with shareholders where a vote is absolutely split about a particular issue or decision. For example, there are 4 equal shareholders (each holding 25%) and 2 shareholders (i.e. 50% of the total vote) vote in one way and the remaining two shareholders (i.e. the other 50% of the total vote) vote in another way.

 The deadlock clause offers a number of options for dealing with a deadlock occurs and provides an agreed timescale to resolve matters. It also includes mediation and sale of shares options.

 The agreement should also cover issues about the shares themselves, for example, what happens if one shareholder wants to sell their shares or dies.  This particular agreement contains pre-emption rights which mean that shares must be offered to existing shareholders first before they are offered for more general sale.

 It also includes a Drag Along clause which is used to deal with sale of shares to a purchaser who wishes to buy all the company shares. This clause would allow the majority of shareholders to require the other shareholder’s to sell their shares to that purchaser.

 The document is intended to protect both the company and the shareholders so that everybody is aware of their obligations. It is equally important whether there it is a small company with just two shareholders who are also director or in a larger company with more shareholders who are not directors.

WHAT DOES IT CONTAIN?
