Shareholder resolutions: company investment

Written shareholder resolutions of a target company in an investment transaction.

Background

What shareholder resolutions might be required for a company investment?

The closing of an investment transaction in a private limited company will likely require a number of shareholder resolutions of the target company to be passed.

The matters which these resolutions might cover include:

  • sub-dividing the existing issued shares into a smaller number of shares, so that the numbers and percentages of shares work in line with the investment round;
  • granting the directors authority to allot the new shares to be issued in the investment round;
  • disapplying the pre-emption rights applicable under the Companies Act 2006 in relation to the new shares being issued;
  • approving the guaranteed term of more than two years in a new director’s service contract which is being entered into in connection with the investment round;
  • adopting new Articles of Association in the terms agreed with the investor(s).
