This is similar (but different!) to what you can expect in a shareholder pact. Given that the primary purpose of a shareholders` agreement is to establish a set of internal management rules for the company and, where possible, to deal prospectively with the way potentially divided issues are dealt with, it is often found that shareholder agreements sometimes involve dispute resolution mechanisms. These mechanisms may include an escalation procedure where shareholder disputes are festered with respect to a non-executive chairman (if the non-executive chairman is independent of the disputed case) or another third party, and the parties may agree that that third party`s decision in this matter is final and binding on them. Another alternative is to give the company president a voice on issues where there is a related vote, but this is often not commercially acceptable if the president is not truly independent, otherwise such a voting agreement could retain control of either group within the company. In the case of a designated, stock-limited business company, the corresponding incorporation model is defined in Schedule 7 of the Act; whereas, in the case of a designated business company, limited by a guarantee, the corresponding constitution model is set out in the eighth calendar of the law. A shareholders` pact is an agreement between the two: a shareholders` pact defines the distribution of control of the company between shareholders and directors. Often, businesses will not generate enough cash to meet the company`s working capital requirements at an early stage, and banks, outside investors or other third-party sources may not have adequate financing. Under these conditions, shareholders can finance the company`s initial working capital requirements themselves by making available to the company as equity or loan capital to meet the company`s initial working capital requirements. If this initial capitalization, combined with free cash flow, is not sufficient and third-party sources of financing are not provided, the parties can expect them to provide additional working capital to the company themselves.
It is common for the parties to treat it „as needed,“ although in some cases the parties provide in shareholder agreements that, in such circumstances, they provide the necessary financial resources by investing in other shares, in loan capital and/or by providing personal guarantees to support bank facilities. A shareholder pact can also predict what should happen if a party fails to meet its obligations. An indication is required when such a provision is taken into account. The reason for this is that a shareholders` pact does not necessarily end when a liquidator or liquidator is appointed to the company and a liquidator or liquidator may attempt to impose such a contract on behalf of the company against the shareholders who have entered into such an alliance.
