We are in early startup phase. One founder has a big majority stake and we are co-founders with small 5 minority stake. We have good relations and we are happy with the stakes, but we would like to get reasonable protection to the shareholders agreement in case things "go bad". We are based on European Law, where the majority shareholder can take over or squeeze out minor shareholders in case they have 95% or more of the stocks.
We will invest lot of time and energy to the project, we would like to be sure to get our portion of the growth of company value. I have been thinking of measures like: * Minimum price (growing annually) of the stake in case the majority shareholder wants to push us out? * Dilution - Unanimous voting would be required to issue new shares? * Unanimous voting for business critical decisions - which ones should I consider?
What are your suggestions and experience, which other risks or protection should I negotiate and write into the SHA. I really appreciate your help and advice, thanks in advance :)
