Document Description

The Shareholders Agreement is a legally binding document that outlines the terms and conditions governing the relationship between the shareholders of a company. It is entered into by Party 1, Party 2, Party 3, Party 4, and Party 5, who have jointly invested in a company and intend to carry out business in a specific territory. The agreement sets out the purpose of the company, the characteristics of the company, and the capital and further finance arrangements. It also establishes the board and management structure, outlines the reserved matters that require the approval of the shareholders, and addresses financial matters such as accounting principles and dividend policy. The agreement includes provisions for confidentiality, non-competition, regulatory matters, and the transfer of shares. It also covers termination events, default, and the obligation of each party to exercise their rights and powers to ensure the fulfillment of the agreement. The agreement is governed by the laws of the applicable territory and any disputes are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in that territory.
