Shareholder Agreement Breaches


Shareholder Agreements may be breached in a variety of circumstances. Examples include where:

    a shareholder sells assets without authorisation;
    a decision is made without the required majority;
    shares are transferred in a way that contravenes the rules set out in the Agreement; or
    confidentially obligations are breached.

If other shareholders suffer loss as a consequence of the breach, they may have a claim for breach of contract and be entitled to damages or other significant remedies, such as an injunction.
