Session 6: Minority and majority shareholdings

This session explains the special features of the acquisition of majority and minority shareholdings. The central element here is the shareholders’ agreement between the acquirer and its future co-partners. In particular, this module describes the most important points of this agreement, such as pre-emptive rights, pre-acquisition rights, co-sale obligations, co-sale rights, protection against dilution, catalogs of transactions requiring consent and options for resolving disputes between shareholders from the perspective of the majority and minority shareholder.
