If a shareholder dies unexpectedly it could easily throw the whole company into chaos. Their shares will become a part of their estate and could be sold by their family in order to re-coup funeral costs, final expenses, etc.
Shareholders cover allows the surviving shareholders to buy your shares should you die or become permanently disabled, ensuring that your business is financially stable during a very difficult time.
Electing a new person as a shareholder at such a delicate time could be disastrous. Trusting someone new with a deciding vote in your precious company can be difficult when they may not share your opinions or your vision going forward. A shareholders protection plan will allow the remaining shareholders to buy the shares from the estate, allowing them to keep full control of the company.
