About this template
The Underwriting Contract: Initial Public Offering of Common Shares without Selling Shareholders (US Issuer) is a legal template that outlines the terms and conditions of an underwriting agreement for a company's initial public offering (IPO) of common shares. This template specifically caters to situations where the company offering the IPO does not involve any selling shareholders, meaning that all the shares being offered are newly issued by the company itself.

The contract provides a comprehensive framework that establishes the roles and responsibilities of both the issuing company and the underwriters involved in the IPO. It delineates various provisions and agreements, including the number and price of the shares to be issued, the participation and obligations of underwriters in the offering, and the compensation and expenses associated with the underwriting.

Furthermore, the template covers important legal aspects such as representations and warranties by the company, covenants, indemnification, termination conditions, and dispute resolution mechanisms. It also addresses regulatory compliance requirements to ensure that the offering adheres to all relevant securities laws and regulations in the United States.

This legal template is designed to serve as a foundation for drafting a customized underwriting agreement and can be used by legal professionals, companies, and financial institutions involved in the IPO process. By utilizing this template, parties can easily navigate the complex landscape of an IPO without selling shareholders, thereby streamlining the underwriting process and mitigating potential legal risks.
