What is

Share Purchase Agreement

A share purchase agreement is a legal document that defines the terms and conditions under which the shares of the company are transferred or purchased. It is entered into by a buyer of shares and a holder of shares who determines the terms and conditions at which the shares shall be purchased. Often these agreements are to protect the interest of the parties. What one needs to understand is that it’s not the shares which are being sold but rather a part of the company. It distinguishes between a sale of all shares of a company and a partial sale and hence it becomes important in this agreement that the contains enough protection against false representations and solicit warranties as to the key aspects of the company.
