Imagine this:

- an investor wants to buy shares of a target company, conditional to the cap table being readjusted, with shareholder-A selling her shares at pre-money valuation

- they want this to happen without any of their money going into shareholder-A

- other shareholders don't have the means to pay shareholder-A for her shares

Investor proposes that shareholder-A sells her shares to other existing shareholders, in return for a loan.

Anyone has experience of such situation?

Applicable law would preferably be UK law (under discussion).
