Share Holder Agreements
A number of small to medium sized companies are owned by more than one shareholder. If one of those shareholders were to die or become totally and permanently disabled, the remaining shareholders would be faced with two options, to either purchase the exiting partners equity in the business, or to allow another partner into the business.
Often the best position for the existing partners is to purchase the shares themselves and to retain control. Shareholder protection provides the funds to do this without the need to raise debt. So ensures a smooth transition of the shareholding.
