Call Option Agreement In Italiano

April 8th, 2021

On July 4, 2018, the Supreme Court of Cassation (Decision 17498) considered the admissibility of an option clause of put in a shareholders` pact of an Italian limited company, in which a shareholder agreed to compensate other shareholders for possible losses incurred in respect of payments made to the Company for capital contributions or other payments with similar effects (e.g. B, by granting, within a period of time, to the outgoing beneficiary the right to be activated by the outgoing shareholder). The decision of the Supreme Court of Cassation confirms that Italian corporate law allows contractual clauses of shareholders in accordance with the international principles of lex mercatoria. Therefore, when an outgoing shareholder who has lost the interest he has contributed to a company exercises his option to sell, the other shareholders must acquire the interest at an agreed price, including the accumulated shares. Under Section 2265 of the BGB, a member agreement that one or more shareholders be exempt from the profit or loss of a company is non-acute. The court found that the put option clause was in accordance with corporate law and that a breach of section 2265 of the BGB occurred only if a shareholder was permanently excluded from the profit or loss of a company.

On 10 October 1994, the Supreme Court of Cassation (Decision 8927) found that a clause in the statutes of a company was nullified by which a shareholder was definitively and totally excluded from the loss or profit of a company. This rule was introduced in order to respect Italian public order in corporate law, which is based on the principle that the shareholders of the company must share profits or losses in relation to their shareholding.
