Each company is governed by corporate law (such as the Business Corporations Act (Alberta), statutes and statutes. These documents cover the basic rules and procedures governing a capital company. However, there may be cases where shareholders wish to request information that goes beyond the scope of the legislation and to contosify company documents. A shareholders` pact will allow shareholders to do so – it is an agreement in which shareholders define their obligations among themselves and regulate the behaviour of shareholders in certain circumstances. A unanimous shareholder agreement (“U.S.”) is a specific type of shareholder pact (i) signed by all shareholders at the time of its first signing; (ii) future shareholders, whether they sign or not; and (iii) all or part of the obligations and powers of the partners. A shareholder with the right to vote has the right to appoint an agent who is present on his behalf at each general meeting and who must vote on his behalf. If your company has more than 50 shareholders or is a distributing company, certain rules apply for sending some form of mandate. Consider consulting a lawyer or other professional. If directors wish to change the share categories described in the articles or one of the rights assigned to a class of shares, it is necessary to change the articles (see change to your article) of the company. A special special decision from shareholders is required. In certain circumstances, which warrant changes in the class of shares and rights, shareholders in each class or group may have the right to vote separately as a class or group.
Shareholder agreements unanimously for your company can be drawn up if necessary. It is a good idea to draw up a list of conditions that you would like to include in your shareholder contract before your lawyer has the shareholder contract drafted unanimously. It is important to receive contributions from all the shareholders of the company, as they must sign the shareholders` pact unanimously.
