A Deed of Adherence is a document that is used to bind a party to an already-existing Shareholders Agreement. A Shareholders Agreement is a document that describes how a company should be managed and outlines the rights and duties of the shareholders of the company.

When a party acquires shares in a company (either by way of sale or subscription), the party becomes a new shareholder or member of the company and thus should be a party to the Shareholders Agreement. Therefore, instead of executing a new Shareholders Agreement, it is more expedient to use this document to bind the new party to the existing Shareholders Agreement. Once this document is used, the new shareholder automatically becomes a party to the Shareholders Agreement.

This document supplements an existing Shareholders Agreement and can not be used alone. In other words, it should be used only when the company already has a Shareholders Agreement.
