Share sale and purchase agreements
This agreement is for the sale of shares in a private company in any industry for cash. It includes a less extensive selection of warranties than other shares sale agreements we offer, making it suitable for transactions where the risks to the buyer are lower: such as when the buyer is familiar with the company, or when the seller is trusted.

This is a simple subscription agreement for new shares where the buyer does not need extensive warranties about the state of the company. He or she is likely to be very familiar already with the company, trust the existing shareholders, or be buying in at a price which lowers the risks significantly. This is therefore an ideal document for situations such as: additional equity investment by an existing shareholder, employee buy-ins, or bringing in a relative into a family business. The document is suitable for companies in any industry and for subscriptions of any size.
