Document Overview

This document applies in cases where the shares have already been issued, and are already owned by a person or company; this document is not appropriate in cases where new shares will be issued to a buyer. This document supports sales by up to two existing shareholders. This document also requires shareholders who aren’t parties to the sale to sign on the agreement as providers of warranties that address the company’s operations and financial health.

This document also requires that a guarantor be part of the agreement to ensure that the selling parties perform their obligations under this agreement, including but not limited to transferring the shares to the buyer, and compensating the buyer in case of certain issues with the company’s health within a certain period following the sale. 

Please note that this document references a "Disclosure Letter". We highly advise that you seek professional advice from a lawyer and/or accountant in assembling your Letter. These Letters must address each of the warranties mentioned in this Agreement and supporting documentation must be provided.
