LBO: Stockholder Agreement


A stockholders' agreement is an agreement amongst the shareholders of a company.

While the relationships amongst the shareholders and those between the shareholders and the company are regulated by the constitutional documents of the company, it is common for the shareholders to supplement the constitutional document with a stockholders' agreement.

A stockholders' agreement would normally be expected to regulate the following matters: regulate the ownership and voting rights of the shares in the company, including any restrictions on transferring shares, Lock-down provisions, pre-emption rights and rights of first refusal, control and management of the company, allocation of key roles or responsibilities, etc.
