Business Law, Mergers and Acquisitions

Buying & Selling Businesses

Business owners that decide to buy or to sell businesses will be dealing exclusively with the realm of mergers and acquisitions. When business owners are planning an acquisition or to buy a business, they will be looking to buy assets, stocks, shares, services or merchandise. During the buying of a business, the purchaser will be looking to avoid any sort of liabilities and will be looking to make their purchase free and clear, with minimal legal constraints. Additionally, people buying businesses may be looking to take over the company in its entirety.

Companies that are looking to sell their businesses will generally outright sell their organization and merchandise or merge with the highest, most attractive bidder. When a company sells, it will forfeit all ownership and merchandise to the buyer. However, when a company merges with another business, the two businesses will share assets, merchandise and stocks. The businesses will no longer operate as two separate entities, but as one uniform company that shares gains and liabilities.
