The Swedish Companies Act (sw. Aktiebolagslagen) and the Company’s articles of association regulates decision making in the company, shareholders’ rights to buy shares if the company issues new shares, shareholders’ voting rights at general meetings and more. Shareholder agreements may include additional rights and obligations between shareholders.

Sciety requires companies to use a professional service for records of shareholdings and provide information about revenue, EBIT and overall information on the company’s business on a quarterly basis. Generally, founders also need to offer tag along rights to investors, giving investors the right to sell their shares on the same terms as the founders.
