Improving your Partnership Through a Shareholders Agreement
The need of finance and the search of business synergies have lead many companies to enter into a joint investment structure instead of settling a stand-alone shareholding structure. The characteristics of the components of joint ventures can range between pure financial investors to industrial companies.
Partnership is not only a question of combining business synergies but also of mutual understanding between the parties, from all possible economic and legal angles. Entering into a joint venture has many legal and tax implications right from its beginning and up until its eventual completion. It is very important to anticipate any situation that may create points of disagreement between the partners, for the sake of the project’s performance.
