Remember the year 2005, when Mark Zuckerberg watered down Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin`s involvement in Facebook and kicked him out of the company? You never know when a friendly relationship can get upset. For this reason, it is always advisable for any practice with several shareholders to sign a shareholders` agreement in order to protect your interests on the street. For everything that awaits you, you should have signed a shareholders` agreement. In the event that a nominee does not vote for the board of directors of one of the shareholders and acts as a director to execute the provisions of this Agreement, the shareholders agree to exercise their right as shareholders of the company and, in accordance with the articles of association of the company, to remove that nominee from the board of directors and to choose a person in his place or place, who has made his best efforts to execute the provisions of this agreement, but only in the event that the shareholder whose nominee has been removed has not appointed a successor within fourteen days from the date on which that nominee was withdrawn.

A cash call is often the last resort. As a general rule, cash appeal clauses provide that if the company needs additional funds and cannot obtain this financing externally, shareholders must provide cash with notice in relation to their holding of shares in the company. Typically, these SHA provisions determine whether cash calls are structured as direct share sales, shareholder loans, or convertible share loans. The shareholders` agreement aims to ensure that shareholders are treated fairly and that their rights are protected. A shotgun clause requires a shareholder to sell his or her share or buy an offering shareholder.
It is a mandatory mechanism of buying and selling between shareholders, triggered when a shareholder makes an offer to buy or sell all of his shares to another shareholder. When a shareholder makes an offer to purchase the shares of another shareholder, the shareholder receiving the offer must either 1) sell his shares at the offered price or 2) buy the shares of the shareholder who made the offer at the same price and on the same terms. . . .
