>In conjunction with a shareholders` agreement, a shareholders` decision indicates how the shareholders` action can continue to be implemented. Shareholder decisions are made either as special decisions or in due form. Ordinary decisions are usually taken by simple majority for routine companies, while special decisions require a majority of 75% and usually concern the statutes of a company. The default position is that an ordinary decision is necessary, unless the law or articles provide otherwise. The Companies Act 2006 provides that a written decision may be signed by the same majority as a decision adopted at a meeting, which constitutes a simple majority in favour of an ordinary decision and 75% for a special decision, whereas the 1985 Act required unanimity. .
