as a single contract
Why is a Contractual Promise to Give Shares important?
The Donor owns all shares in the company Example AG in Winterthur. The Beneficiary, who is the Donor’s son, has been a member of the company’s executive board for five years. In recognition of his outstanding work, and in view of a potential future acquisition of the company Example AG, the Donor donates the Beneficiary 30% of the shares of ExampleAG.
