The transfer of the ownership rights of a company, where one entity takes ownership of another’s assets and equity, is known as an acquisition.
Acquisitions can be ‘friendly’, where the incumbent directors are willingly relinquishing control and/or possession of the business, or ‘hostile’, where equity is bought direct from shareholders or management is forced out and replaced with a team willing to sell.
If you are subject to a hostile acquisition, there are potential legal defences, and hiring legal assistance should not be delayed to give you the best chance of success.
The legal concept of a merger is similar, if not overlapped, with an acquisition. It involves the consolidation of two separate legal entities, resulting in a single amalgamated corporation. Similar considerations need to be tended to in this instance as with an acquisition.
In either case, mergers and acquisitions incorporate a number of legal issues, including asset valuation and proprietary ownership changes. There are also rules about confidentiality and disclosure, as well as subsequent legal structuring.
