Shareholders Agreement checklist: equal 50/50 shareholders

Checklist for a Shareholders Agreement between two equal shareholders


Equal shareholders in a company should consider having a shareholders agreement to regulate the management of the company and their relationship as shareholders.

Before preparing a shareholders agreement, it may be worthwhile for the shareholders to discuss and agree in principle how the agreement will deal with certain matters and to record this agreement in a pre-agreement checklist.  The checklist can then be used as the basis for the shareholders agreement itself and should save time and future discussion on the shareholders agreement.
