Shareholders Agreement Bundle
A Shareholders Agreement is a contract between the shareholders of a company. Shareholders Agreements govern the relationship between shareholders in a company. A Shareholders Agreement covers business arrangements, rights, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities of shareholders.
A Shareholders Agreement also protects the interests of shareholders regarding their investment in the company. It covers matters that not covered by a company’s constitution. It operates in addition a company’s constitution.
A shareholders agreement includes, among other things, provisions in relation to the terms on which a person can leave (or be required to leave) the company, decision making, management of the company’s business, appointment and removal of directors, meetings and voting rights, distribution of profits, contributions of capital, sharing of expenses and resolution of disputes.

Minority Shareholder Agreement
The marginalisation of one shareholder or group of shareholders is called ‘shareholder oppression’. The shareholder oppression claims heard in Australian courts are in situations where a minority shareholder (or shareholders) are being unfairly treated by a larger (and usually a majority) shareholder.
The oppressive conduct provisions of the Corporations Act are commonly used in conjunction with a claim of breach of director’s duty or in bringing an application to wind up the company entirely. Situations in which shareholder oppression occurs may be avoided by using a minority shareholder agreement, particularly in situations where the minority shareholders are making a significant financial contribution to the company.
