The United States should be tailored to the unique needs of the business and the particular risks and objectives of shareholders. It should reasonably anticipate likely future events and provide flexibility in handling unforeseen issues. Below are some of the key areas that the United States should cover to protect the interests of a minority shareholder. Minority shareholders will want protection against abuse of their control powers by majority shareholders. To address this problem, minority shareholders should strive to include rights and safeguards in a shareholders` agreement or in the company`s articles of association. These rights and safeguards include the right to block important decisions, protection against shares (and diluted securities), access to information about the company`s affairs, representation of the board of directors, and exit mechanisms from the company. . . .
