for both.
Expert:  Brandon Ament replied 1 year ago.

Pre-emptive rights are a clause used in shareholders agreements to guard against possible future dilution. You will need to contact a lawyer in person for a face to face meeting if you want an opinion on whether or not there is current case law that addresses this issue when there isn't a shareholders agreement.

What province are you in? I can provide you with the contact information for the provincial law society in your area.
