Preparing and discussing such an agreement gives you valuable insight into the styles, goals, etc. of other parties. It should impose an accurate and honest assessment of who will do what and who has committed to do what. More importantly, are the founders` personal goals, goals, and risk-taking compatible? If one founder sees a tightly run small business as a path to autonomy in life and another a dynamic company, go-for it, this marriage won`t work! Even if you`re not sure about certain things and no matter how deep you are, you`re going to miss something. Do this, and then correct it if necessary, that is, revise an agreement later, rather than postponing one in the first instance. 2.1 The shareholders` agreement covers the entire portfolio of shares, shares, equity or other rights of the parties in the company (hereinafter referred to as “shares”). When a party acquires additional shares of the company, regardless of the actual method, those new shares are covered by this shareholders` agreement. When new treasury shares are to be issued, shareholders usually have the right to buy them before the company offers them to an external investor (in order to avoid dilution). In case of recourse to an external investor (for example. B venture capital), these subscription rights should probably be abandoned. (c) unless the required authorization (as defined below) is approved, no investor may take, authorize or authorize any action that would result in such investor or a related business of such investor being required to register as a savings and loan holding company in accordance with section 10(e) of HOLA and 12 C.F.R.
§ 574.3(a) with respect to the entity or bank.
