A shareholders` agreement includes a date, often the number of shares issued, a capitalization table (or “cap”), which indicates the shareholders and their percentage of ownership, any restrictions on the transfer of shares, the subscription rights of current shareholders to purchase shares (in the event of a new issue to maintain their ownership share) and details of payments in the event of the sale of a business. Many entrepreneurs who create startups will want to design a shareholders` agreement for the first parties. This should clarify the original intentions of the parties; In the event of a dispute, as the company matures and changes, a written agreement can help resolve the issues by serving as a point of reference. Entrepreneurs may also want to include who can be a shareholder, which happens when a shareholder is no longer able to actively own their shares (e.g.B. is disabled, dies, resigns or is dismissed) and who has the right to be a member of the board of directors. . . .
