It is not a golden rule that you have to make an agreement to sell or buy a share, but to limit the problems that may arise in the future, it is always advantageous to give a written form to such transactions, that is, to conclude an agreement. The acquisition of shares represents the acquisition of the operational activity of a company. None of the existing contracts with the company change. When a shareholder sells his shares in a company, he achieves a total rupture of the relationship between him and the activity concerned. However, the buyer will insist on a number of contractual commitments concerning the company (guarantees) that will continue to bind the shareholder after the sale. On the other hand, the Tag Along clause does not govern the obligation of the minority shareholder, but a right. If the majority shareholder sells his shares, the minority shareholder has the right to “Tag-Along”. They therefore have the right to sell their stake on the same terms as the majority shareholder. Since an investor only wants to buy a certain number of shares, the minority shareholder can join the agreement on a pro rata basis, i.e. the percentage of the stake before the sale.
In the event of a share acquisition, it is as if there is no change in ownership of the assets and liabilities – disclosed or not – and the objective continues as before. This may involve responsibility for the company`s past actions. A dividend is a share of the company`s profit that a shareholder receives at regular intervals during the year. . . .
