Share subscription agreement information

The investor may make several payments to the company over a defined period (known as ‘tranches’) or a lump sum payment for the shares.

When the agreement is concluded, the investor becomes a shareholder of the company and has the associated rights and liabilities.

The agreement may set out conditions precedent, including, for example, that the directors must pass a resolution approving the issue of shares before the agreement can come into force.

The agreement may also specify limitations on one or both parties, including a duty of confidentiality or a duty on the investor to refrain from investing in businesses that are in competition with the activities of the company.
