A Subscription Agreement is a document wherein a person (the "Subscriber") agrees to acquire the unissued shares of an existing corporation or a corporation that will be incorporated (the "Company"). However, some also use Subscription Agreements for acquiring shares that will come from an increase in authorized stock of an existing corporation.
A Subscription Agreement should contain the basic terms and conditions of the acquisition such as the number of shares that will be acquired, the price for the acquisition, and the manner of payment. If the payment will be anything other than cash, then the value shall first be determined by the stockholders or the board of directors of the Company and said value shall be subject to the approval of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
