As soon as your startup has more than one owner, you need one of these, and this may turn out to be the most important contract you ever enter into.

A proper Shareholders’ Agreement will govern how important business decisions are made, how the company will raise further capital in the future and how the investors will ultimately exit – all crucial matters about which there should be clear agreement in advance.

Of particular importance will be pre-emption rights on new issues of securities (shares), which help to prevent the investors from being diluted by future capital raisings, as well as pre-emption rights on transfers of securities to give the investors certainty about the particular individuals with whom they are going into business.  Tag-along and drag-along rights can also prove to be crucial when one or more of the owners are seeking to exit the business.

Creating a shareholders’ agreement for your startup will force you and your co-investors to sit down together and address these vital points upfront.
