Mergers and Acquisitions
What are Mergers and Acquisitions? Coming together as individuals or companies to combine efforts, staff, and resources is a common business transaction, and may be structured in several different ways. There are many important decisions to make during a transition, big or small, and SAPG can help. Whether your company is being acquired by another company or individual or you are adding shareholders, members, or acquiring other businesses, the proper structure and formalization is required for you to continue successfully. Depending on your company’s size, goals, and requirements, SAPG Legal works with you to formulate, negotiate, and formalize the changes in your business. SAPG strives to handle your company’s most important and complex transactions so that you and your business can make a seamless transition.
STOCK V. ASSET PURCHASE
The difference between stock and assets purchases is a critical distinction. When purchasing stock of a company, you are buying ownership of that entire company- its name, its assets like its accounts receivables, as well as its liabilities like its loans. An asset purchase, on the other hand, is a purchase of only the assets of a company, and not its name or liabilities. Each structure has different implications and it is important to consider and discuss this with an experienced attorney.
