When buying or selling a business, owners and investors have a choice: the transaction can be a purchase and sale of assets Ast AcquisitionThe acquisition of assets is the purchase of a company by buying its assets instead of its shares. In most legal systems, the acquisition of assets usually involves the assumption of certain debts. However, since the parties can negotiate which assets are acquired and which commitments are assumed, the transaction can be much more flexible or the purchase and sale of common shares. Acquisition of sharesWhen acquiring shares, each shareholder sells his stake in the company to a buyer. When selling shares, the buyer takes ownership of both assets and liabilities, including potential liabilities resulting from previous shares of the business. The buyer of the assets or shares (the buyer) and the seller of the business (the “purpose”) may have several reasons to advance one type of sale of others. This handbook examines in detail the decision to buy assets versus buy shares. Shares (or shares) are ownership shares in a company that are distributed among shareholders (also called shareholders).
