The Standard Agreement Financing Round consists of six parts:

  • the introductory instructions for use, which should be read in advance in order to understand them,
  • a separate participation and shareholder agreement (designed in such a way that it is not subject to notarization),
  • a (revised) articles of association (partnership agreement) – which must be notarized,
  • rules of procedure for the management
  • rules of procedure for the advisory board (optional),
  • the notarized transcript of the extraordinary shareholders’ meeting.

All of the above-mentioned documents of the standard agreement financing round do not claim to be complete and do not constitute legal or tax advice or can replace such advice.

Neither the German Standards Setting Institute nor its shareholders or the members of the preparatory working group or the law firms or companies to which the members of the working group belong or which they represent are liable for the correctness and/or completeness of the documents provided.

The members of the financing round working group can be found here.
