When a company has two or more owners it is important to regulate how the business shall be conducted, e.g. through a shareholders’ agreement.
In order to develop the business, it could be necessary to bring in new owners that provide competence and experience. This could be done by a share issue, that will also bring new capital to the company. The company could also raise capital through a rights offering, where the present shareholders get a possibility to acquire additional shares in the company.
The company can acquire another company through a so called “all-stock deal”, where the company pays for the acquisition with its own shares. Key personnel could be more closely tied to the company through a share-option scheme.
Questions often arise related to shareholders’ meetings, the board of directors and the CEO. Other matters could involve establishing a subsidiary and liquidating a company. For listed companies there are many issues regarding information to the market, corporate governance and good practice on the market.
