Investment into a Start-Up
Blake-Turner advised the directors and shareholders of a newly incorporated company on the terms of an investment.
As is common with investments into start-up companies, the investor provided their terms including bespoke articles of association and a shareholders agreement. Blake-Turner negotiated the terms of the investment, including the articles of association, the shareholders agreement and the subscription agreement. The documents were drafted to protect the investment being given. Blake-Turner worked to ensure that the investor remained comfortable with the terms whilst ensuring that the shareholders’ interests were also protected and that they maintained control of their company.
The shareholders wanted the transaction to complete in a timely manner, given the importance of investment funds for new companies. Blake-Turner kept this goal in mind at all times throughout the negotiation to ensure that the shareholders were fully advised whilst reaching a conclusion as quickly as possible.
