What Are Co-sale Rights?

Co-sale rights, also known as tag-along or (less often) take-me-along rights, are the rights of minority shareholders to join in when the majority shareholder or the founders sell their stock. Therefore, if the company's original owner sells his or her stock to a corporation for $20 per share, every investor with a co-sale right can get the same deal.

Co-sale rights are usually paired with the right of first refusal, or ROFR. With an ROFR clause, a company or its shareholders can buy the majority shareholder's stock if he or she decides to sell to a third party. This lets the current investors keep control of the company in case they don't like the third-party investor.

Fully Diluted: What Is It?

Fully diluted shares are the total number of outstanding shares there would be if all convertible securities were converted to common stock. Fully diluted is one way of measuring how many shares a company has. It helps investors determine the value of the company. Common stock are the shares held by employees, managers, and shareholders who have voting rights in a company.

Fully diluted shares take many things into account. Preferred stock, for instance, is held by individuals who receive their dividends before everyone else. These people do not, however, have voting rights. However, if they have convertible preferred stock, they can turn it into common stock.

There are other convertible securities, as well. Stock options allow i
