Shareholder Protection

Why Shareholder Protection?

Shareholder protection tends to be ignored amidst all the day to day concerns of running a successful business. However, it is vitally important for private limited companies with a small number of principal shareholders to consider what would happen if one of their shareholders were to become critically ill or pass away.

Ramifications of such an event can include:

  • Shares being passed on to dependents who have no interest in the business and would prefer a cash sum.
  • Other shareholders losing control as a result of not having the resources to buy back lost shares.
  • Shares being taken over by a competitor.

Benefits include:

  • Transferring shares to remaining shareholders at a fair price.
  • Avoiding having to draw on funds set aside for other purposes.
  • Preventing the sale of shares to competitors.
  • Helping to make all transactions tax efficient.
  • Helping to ensure the financial security of the shareholder’s dependents.
  • Maintain continuity in the business.
