Overview Of Shareholders Agreement

A shareholders agreement determines the relationship between the owners of the business or company. A shareholders agreement in India includes the rights and duties, the reallocation of shares, business operations, and how important verdicts and decisions are made.

The objective of a shareholders agreement is to provide equal protection to all shareholders and to enable them to decide whether to become shareholders in the future. A shareholder agreement emphasises the majority shareholders’ commitment to safeguard minority shareholders from exploitation and give them a voice when crucial decisions are made, which is why minority shareholders value it more than majority shareholders do.

Benefits of a Shareholders Agreement

There are mainly two benefits of Shareholders Agreement:

  • It establishes authority.

A shareholder agreement in India clarifies a shareholder’s authority and standing, as well as the licence you hold as the issuer of such shares, by describing the power and risks for all. Furthermore, it acts as a gatekeeper in the interaction between small and large shareholders.

  • Making changes is simple.

A shareholders agreement creates the ideal conditions for amending the company constitution. It is appropriate for small and medium-sized businesses that do not want to change the entire constitution whenever minor changes are required.


Shareholders Agreement Include

sBefore finalising the shareholders agreement, ensure that all necessary provisions are included by reviewing the shareholders agreement.

1.  Right of Shareholders

  • The right to vote.
  • The right to appoint directors and the company auditor.
  • The right to call a general meeting.
  • Right to inspect the company’s books and registers as well as its financial statements.

2. Regulations governing the transfer and sale of the company’s shares

A shareholders agreement must include certain rules to protect the shareholders’ interests in the transfer and sale of the company’s shares. Such rules would ensure that a sale or transfer occurs only after the parties involved have given their mutual consent.

3. The company’s financial requirements

When shareholders believe it will benefit the company, they can proceed to obtain the most viable source of funding. The procedure for obtaining such funds is outlined in the draught shareholders agreement.

4. Minimum quorum requirements
The shareholders agreement will specify the quorum requirements (the minimum number of members required to constitute a valid meeting).

5. Methods for Valuing the Company’s Shares

Given the market’s frequent fluctuations, proper valuation of company shares is critical to the company’s fortunes. In India, the valuation methods and approaches are precisely laid out in the shareholders agreement.

6. Operating Procedures for the Company
In India, the shareholders agreement would include guidelines, policies, and procedures to ensure the smooth operation of the company on a daily basis.

7. Liability of Shareholders

Shareholders have limited liability with the company and are not directly liable for its actions. The shareholders’ liabilities are clearly defined in the agreement.

8. Minority shareholder protection
The rights of minority company shareholders are outlined in the shareholders agreement, according to the provisions of the 2013 Companies Act. The agreement will safeguard minority shareholders in the event of mismanagement, oppression, or piggybacking (the sale of shares by the majority shareholders).

I hired Pooja to conduct due diligence on a company I wanted to invest in. And her work was absolutely comprehensive. She did it not only in a timely manner, but the report presented by her exceeded expectations. She delved into the smallest details of the company and gave me amazing feedback. Beyond that, she is extremely responsive and professional and it is my pleasure to conduct more of my legal work through The Startup Gig.
