Purchases, Sales and Other Commercial Transactions
Businesses do things!
Depending on the business, at some point (or at various points) throughout the business’ life it will acquire or dispose of significant rights or assets. This may be the sale of an entire business as a going concern, the purchase of an additional, complementary business (either by acquiring the shares of another company or acquiring key assets), or the acquisition of large capital assets (such as land and buildings) or key intellectual property rights (such as licences or technology). It could also be some form of merger to create a “new” business and new opportunities. However regardless of the nature of the transaction, it is usually a significant event and so needs to be well planned and well managed from start to finish.
