FAQs on Business Purchase and Sale with K&S Canon

What is the difference between an asset purchase and a stock purchase?

An asset purchase involves buying specific assets of a business, such as equipment, good will, furniture, inventory, or intellectual property. A stock purchase involves acquiring ownership of a company by purchasing its shares or stock. Asset purchases typically allow the buyer to avoid certain liabilities, while stock purchases often result in acquiring the business in its entirety, including existing contracts and liabilities.

What is a letter of intent, and why is it important in business transactions?

A letter of intent (LOI) is a preliminary agreement that outlines the basic terms and conditions of a proposed business transaction. It is important because it establishes the intentions of the parties involved and serves as a framework for negotiating the final agreement. LOIs are often non-binding but help set the stage for the subsequent steps in the transaction process.

What should be included in a purchase and sale agreement?

A purchase and sale agreement should include key terms such as the purchase price, a description of the assets or shares being purchased, payment terms, closing conditions, warranties and representations, and any contingencies. It should also address the responsibilities of each party and outline dispute resolution procedures. K&S Canon helps ensure these agreements are comprehensive and legally sound.

What should be considered when planning a business exit?

When planning a business exit, consider factors like business valuation, tax implications, ownership transfer, and compliance with regulatory requirements. It's also important to have a clear plan for transitioning business operations to new ownership. K&S Canon assists with drafting exit agreements, structuring deals, and ensuring a smooth transition while protecting your rights and interests.
