The signing of a unanimous shareholder agreement can be very useful when shareholders of a corporation hold a number of shares much more greater than others. Indeed, the signing of such an agreement ensures that the corporation's decisions are taken by majority of votes held by shareholders rather than by the majority of directors in office.
If the corporation's shareholders also wish to settle the administrative aspects of the corporation regarding the shareholding or the sale of shares to third parties in the event of a disagreement or death of a shareholder, please use our other service available for this purpose, namely: the "Shareholder Agreement".
