Sample Shareholder Agreement Closely Held Corporation

It is important to include in your sample Shareholder Agreement close held corporations. This is because there are many such entities that the general public has no idea exist. That is because they are not required to file with the SEC as to publicly traded corporations. This means that the corporations that you come across are very likely to be privately held and as such, are not required to disclose their ownership.

Many of these companies are closely held corporations that are run by a single person who is also the manager of the business. This makes the close-held corporation something of an enigma, as the name suggests. That is the reason why it is important to include in your sample Shareholder Agreement a section entitled: The CIPO (Chief Executive Officer) of the Company.
