Share Purchase Agreement

To transfer a business corporation, a purchaser must acquire at least a majority of the issued and outstanding voting shares of the business. Such shares may belong to one or more owners who agree to sell their shares for consideration. This transfer could theoretically be evidenced by simply endorsing the share certificates representing a majority of such registered holders in favour of the new owner in exchange for the agreed payment. However, when the business being sold is a private issuer, common practice usually involves signing a share purchase agreement (which can be more or less detailed, depending on the wishes of the parties).

This template has been drafted specifically for when a corporation sells its shares to a person (who is not already a shareholder) and this sale results in control being transferred to this new shareholder. This template sets out the legal, financial and commercial framework for a share purchase agreement.

When using this template, it is important to take into consideration any laws that could affect the interpretation of certain clauses in this contract; for example, the law under which the corporation was incorporated (CBCA or QBCA), the Civil Code of Québec (concerning service agreements and mandates) and the applicable provisions of the Québec Securities Act and its regulations.

Share Purchase Agreement

It is very important to determine whether a share purchase agreement is the appropriate legal instrument for your situation. A share purchase agreement is necessary in the following situations, namely:

a) when the parties to the sale wish to avoid the complications or risks associated with an asset purchase; an asset purchase may not be the most advantageous option, because some assets can be difficult to transfer or the cost of transferring them may be prohibitive; as such, a share purchase may be a better alternative; and

b) when the buy-sell process is initiated by a letter of intent (template Y04200), rather than a detailed offer to purchase shares (template Y04270) followed by a closing certificate (template Y04600).
