The Partners wish to regulate their relationship as partners in the Partnership and the management of the Partnership in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

The Business shall be conducted in the best interests of the Partnership on sound commercial profit-making principles in accordance with the Business Plan. The Partners shall use all reasonable endeavours to procure its prompt and effective implementation.

The Partners shall respectively make initial contributions to the capital of the Partnership as follows:

(a) General Partner: [describe or refer to commitment to provide initial contribution: cash, assets, transfer of property etc.]

(b) LP1: [describe or refer to commitment to provide initial contribution: cash, assets, transfer of property etc.]

(c) LP2: [describe or refer to commitment to provide initial contribution: cash, assets, transfer of property etc.]

The Partners acknowledge and agree that, following the initial contributions.

The Percentage Shares of the Partners shall accordingly be X per cent for General Partner, Y per cent for LP1 and Z per cent for LP2 (or such other percentages as may from time to time be a consequence of any sale, assignment, transfer or disposal of the whole or part of a Partner's Partnership Interest pursuant to or as permitted by this Agreement).

Each Partner undertakes that it will during the term of this Agreement contribute its Percentage Share of all funding required by any relevant Budget or as agreed by the General Partner.

The liabilities of the Partners under such guarantees (so far as possible) shall be several and not joint and several.

All profits and losses of the Partnership for any Accounting Period shall be allocated to the Partners in proportion to their Percentage Shares, unless the Partners agree otherwise.
