Drafting An Investment Agreement

  • September 17, 2021

On the other hand, an investment agreement specifically targets a specific investment for which the investor can obtain equity in the company or enter into other leverage agreements (effectively a loan to the company). The investor may already be a shareholder or a new third-party investor. The terms of the investment depend on the type of financing the company needs (e.g. B does the investor have to engage in several funding rounds? Does the investor need to provide immediate interim financing prior to the main investment phase?) and the nature of the financing agreements will determine the negotiating power of the parties when negotiating the investment agreement. The main difference between an investment agreement and a shareholders` agreement is that a shareholders` agreement is a contract between a company and its existing shareholders (although new shareholders may be included in a shareholders` agreement by signing a compliance act) in order to regulate the behavior of shareholders and the rights and obligations they have with regard to general operation, establish working procedures. Management and strategy of a company. When a company decides to accept new investments, there can often be different conditions and risks that accompany the funds. Finding a way to identify and manage these issues can allow a company and investor to effectively monitor their risk profile. This can be especially important for start-ups and companies that are subject to early investment cycles to ensure that all parties are aware of what the investor is entitled to now and in the future.

In the search for a suitable precedent, the main factor in choosing the previous one is whether you opt for a version with one or more investors (the latter is appropriate if there is a consortium of investors). As a general rule, the key issues that the investor wishes to provide in the investment agreement for the conclusion of the agreement, namely the main conditions that must be met for the conclusion, are the confirmation that: the acquisition continues under the share purchase agreement (so that nothing prevents its conclusion), and there can be many similarities between an investment contract and a shareholder contract.
