There is rarely a liquid market for the sale or exchange of ownership interests in closely held companies, even if they are successful. Buy/sell agreements, however, create a market among the owners of a company, providing a mechanism for a shareholder or member to liquidate his or her interests in a reliable manner. The owners may agree to buy and sell interests among themselves on the occurrence of certain events and using certain valuation metrics, or they may agree that the company itself will buy out a shareholder or member’s interest over time. Without these agreements, there is often no alternative for a shareholder or member to cash out short of liquidating the company. This program provides you with a practical guide to the different types of buy/sell agreements, drafting the essential provisions of each, and common negotiating and drafting tips.
