Bring on New Shareholders

Bringing new shareholders into a company has numerous benefits, yet it needs to be done correctly if it is to succeed. Among the driving concerns associated with prospective shareholders joining the company:

- not derailing the corporation's current agenda, especially with activist shareholders, who wish to redirect the purpose of the corporation

- keeping employee shareholders engaged in the company after they have gained shares in the company

- removing shareholders who have become problematic or destructive to the interests of the majority of shareholders

These are but some of the concerns that might arise with respect to bringing on new shareholders, such that it is important that appropriate legal precautions and documentation is undertaken prior to bring on the prospective shareholder. Attempting to deal with these situations after the fact is all too often far too late for the corporation and the earlier shareholders.
