Side Letter To Share Purchase Agreement

An agreement does not necessarily have to be part of the traditional structure of a contract (i.e. with a block of parties, recitals, terms of the agreement, numbered articles, sections and a signature form).

The general validity of a secondary letter between the parties seems clear, regardless of the applicable system.
