Letter Providing Notice of a Shareholder's Intent to Transfer Shares Powered By Docstoc
					This letter is used by a shareholder to provide notice that he or she is transferring
shares of stock. Oftentimes shareholders of corporations execute shareholders'
agreements which require that a shareholder must give the other shareholders notice of
a proposed sale, so that the other shareholders may match the sale price and buy the
leaving shareholder's shares, instead of the third party. Pursuant to these shareholders'
agreements, the leaving shareholder must describe the proposed transfer in certain
terms. This letter provides such notice, adequately describing the proposed transfer
and giving notice of the shareholder's intent to transfer the shares.
