Buy-Sell Stockholders' Agreement: Entity Purchase (19 Pages)

$ 49.00
Add Items to Cart


This is an entity purchase Stockholders’ Agreement whereby the Corporation is the purchaser of the stock of a deceased or disabled stockholder. The Agreement addresses a number of situations where a stockholder may wish to sell his or her stock, namely a sale to a third party, death and permanent disability. Article IV gives the corporation first, then the remaining stockholders, a right of first refusal to purchase the shares of a stockholder wishing to sell. Note that the price indicated here for the “insiders” to buy is the lesser of the third-party offered price or the agreed-upon price for the stock included in the Agreement. If desired, that could be changed to force the insiders to meet the offered price.

Mr. Siegel, who wrote, and uses for his clients, this Form, advises that these buy-sell agreements are now more attractive to clients. Specifically, he says:
"Since the 2017 Act repealed the corporate alternative minimum tax, the prior law making life insurance payments owned by a corporation and collected at death to facilitate a buy-sell an AMT tax preference is over. That discouraged some C corporation entity purchases. They may be more favorable now." 
Articles V (death) and VI (disability) require the Corporation to buy out the stockholder’s interest should either of these events occur. The stock is priced using the Certificate of Value method (Article VII). If desired, a formula or an appraisal could be substituted here. The terms of purchase contemplate the Corporation owning life or disability insurance on the stockholders (Article XII) which would be applied toward the purchase price. A withdrawing stockholder is given the opportunity to acquire a corporate-owned insurance policy. (Article XIII). Provision is made for both excess insurance proceeds (the corporation retains) and insufficient insurance proceeds (a Note arrangement) to satisfy the purchase obligation (Article VIII). Protection is included in the Agreement in the event the corporation is an S corporation. (Article XI).
