This is a simple shareholders’ agreement intended to be implemented by a startup at the time it closes a seed investment round in Southeast Asia.

This agreement deals with the management of the startup and the relationship between the founders, any other existing shareholders and the investors (e.g. rights to appoint directors, matters requiring the approval of any investor-appointed directors, the provision of financial information, confidentiality provisions, etc). With a view to keeping the seed investment documentation simple, this shareholders’ agreement is drafted to include certain items which could separately go into the constitution of the company (e.g. pre-emptive rights, co-sale and drag-along rights). This will avoid companies needing to update their constitution.
