Welcome to You Legal TV.

You’ve wooed investors with your pitch, set out the Term Sheet and prepared the Share Offer document, but you may find that experienced venture capitalists will also expect a Share Subscription Agreement.

This Agreement will typically contain five types of clauses:

  1. Representations and warranties of the investor;
  2. and also of the company;
  3. Conditions precedent, which set out who needs to do what before the Agreement comes into force;
  4. Confidentiality; and
  5. The Tranches clause setting out the details of the deal found in the term sheet.

While the document contains clauses that benefit both parties, a Share Subscription Agreement is ultimately a document for the benefit of the investor.
