Enforceability Of Side Agreements In The Uae

A recent Federal Court of Justice decision has shown a unique position on the issue of ancillary agreements. A shareholder of the United Arab Emirates (who owns 51% of the shares under the law) has filed a lawsuit and asked the court to confirm his right to 51% of the profits in accordance with the shareholder`s agreement. Subsequently, the Omani shareholder (which held 24% of the shares according to MOA) claimed that the company`s shareholders signed an ancillary agreement and entered into an agreement whereby VaE`s partner held 37.5% of the shares, the Omani partner 37.5% and the US company 25% against 24% of the previous shares. The Bundesgerichtshof decided that there was sufficient documented evidence to prove the existence of the subsidiary agreement, as the Omani partner argued. After reviewing all the documents provided by the Omani partner, the court concluded that there was sufficient evidence to demonstrate the existence of the ancillary agreement between the parties (and that the shares were distributed on the basis of 37.5% to the partners of the United Arab Emirates and grannies and 25% to the American company). Although the general intent under contract law is that an ancillary agreement gives rise to legally enforceable rights and obligations and has the same force as the underlying primary contract. But this is by no means guaranteed. In some cases, the courts have denied the validity of an ancillary agreement and have stated that an ancillary agreement has nothing but a moral effect. Therefore, ancillary agreements (usually between two parties) must be carefully crafted. Ancillary agreements are often used in commercial contracts, particularly in financial or real estate transactions.

An ancillary agreement is usually in the form of a letter signed by the states that are signatories to the primary contract. In order for an ancillary agreement to become binding, it must meet the same test that all contracts must meet, i.e. that there must be an offer, acceptance, reflection, guarantee and intention to establish a legal relationship. An auxiliary contract is a contract that must be matched (payment in all forms, as part of the contract). The consideration condition is the most important in an ancillary agreement, and it must not be in monetary form; it can only be a mutual benefit. It is important to note here that an ancillary agreement, without utility or payment, can only become legally binding if it is carried out as an act, which means that it must find that the ancillary agreement is an act and that the party`s signatures must be testified. Both parties appealed again to the Supreme Court. The omathist shareholder argued that he had provided sufficient evidence to justify the ancillary agreement, but argued that the Court of Appeal had neglected this issue. The shareholder of the United Arab Emirates appealed and insisted on its request to withdraw the Omani shareholder. In the United Arab Emirates, what is the applicability of an „incidental agreement“ to a limited liability company (LLC) that states that the LLC is wholly owned by the expatriate investor and that the local sponsor is a candidate for the economic beneficiary? After the revision of the NSA law or the ancillary agreement, we will now take a look at how the courts of the United Arab Emirates have dealt with the subject.
