Tag-Along Rights

Definition of Tag-Along Rights

Tag-Along Rights are rights granted to a minority shareholder giving them the right to include their shares in any sale of control and to do so at the offered price.

Generally speaking, minority shareholders should always ask for or demand tag-along rights because they do not have to be exercised but can be very useful in a variety of scenarios.
