Unanimous Shareholders Agreement Vs Shareholders Agreement

13. April 2021

A well-developed shareholder pact takes time to understand the business and its objectives in order to create tailored conditions that meet the needs of the parties. For a business to function effectively, there is no substitute for good business decision-making and good governance. Even a small, low-run company with few shareholders is better served by good governance practices. We will not try to list all the issues that might depend on the United States. In all cases, this decision must be made after a thorough discussion by shareholders and depends on their individual needs and circumstances. However, some more common examples are dividend reporting and payment, stock issuance, executive appointment and decision-making outside normal operations. A USA is the most common form of shareholder pact. A USA covers all the shareholders of the company, both now and in the future. In addition to articles and statutes, a United States is considered one of the group`s framework documents. For this reason, under the legislation, a United States cannot be amended without the written consent of all shareholders on the effective date of the amendment. Note also that the existence of the United States must be disclosed to the Quebec Registrar of Business (the „Registrar“). In addition, if all directors` powers are removed, the names and addresses of shareholders must be recorded in the company`s minutes, not the directors`. For example: ABC Corporation is owned by X, Y and Z.

X owns 80% of the voting shares, while Y and Z hold 10% respectively. The board of directors consists exclusively of X. In order to prevent X from being able to make all business decisions, particularly those of particular importance to Y and Z, it may be agreed to remove the authority from the Board of Directors to make these latter decisions and submit them to the approval of at least 95% of the shareholders. Y and Z therefore have the right to vote on such decisions which would otherwise not be subject to their consent, and may prevent the adoption of such a decision, with which they may disagree. The private equity agreement also provides that small private companies often have shareholders who assume some, if not all, of the directors` duties. Thus, such conditions can be introduced to ensure that they do not abuse their powers when they eventually leave the company and to ensure the protection of the company. The strategic advantage of including it in the shareholders` pact is controversial. These clauses apply at least to executives, employees, consultants, agents and other parties through an independent contract. [P]by a mechanism by which shareholders can, by unanimous agreement, take away from directors some or all of their executive powers at the discretion of shareholders. Instead of removing directors from their positions, the United States simply releases them from their powers, rights, duties and responsibilities. This can be done without specific formalities… In fact, an „integrated partnership“ is emerging with legal force.

While it is impossible to sit down and list all potential events that could impact the business in the future, a structure that provides a framework to support and lead the board can be very helpful for the company. A framework for decision-making provides greater security and fairness to all parties involved and helps to protect the interests of majority and minority shareholders in the same way. This framework is often provided most effectively through a shareholder pact.
