What is a Stock Redemption Agreement?

A stock redemption agreement is a common type of buy/sell agreement that a stockholder initiates when wanting to sell their interest in a company. Stock-redemption agreements can require a departing stockholder to be compensated by the remaining members of the company.

As a company grows, it may use a stock redemption agreement to formalize how the company handles departing stockholders. These agreements are best used in businesses where each share is equal. Stock-redemption agreements are designed to prevent shareholders who quit the company from claiming assets. They can also be used to encourage shareholders to stay.

Common Sections in Stock Redemption Agreements

Below is a list of common sections included in Stock Redemption Agreements. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.
