A Closer Look At
Business Transactions.

Mergers and Acquisitions

The sale or purchase of a business in Texas usually involves a contract, which will vary depending the type of transaction involved, a due-diligence period, and a closing. While the heart of the transaction is governed by the contract, other documents used in the sale might include deeds for real property, bills of sale for personal property, non-compete agreements for the seller and various entity authorizations and ratifications.

One of the most important decisions when buying or selling a business is whether just the assets themselves are being conveyed or the entire business entity. Buyers generally prefer to purchase just the assets of the business as opposed to the entity itself because purchasing the assets alone minimizes the risk in acquiring undisclosed liabilities associated with the entity. However, there are some potential advantages to purchasing the entire entity. For example, buying the entity itself might include acquiring an established credit rating, business lines with a bank, and current vendor accounts while eliminating some otherwise necessary paperwork.

One of the most critical aspects of buying a business is the period where a buyer has the opportunity to inspect and investigate the operations, records, and functions of the business being purchased.

Common Steps of the
Due Diligence Process.

All the contracts related to the sale and purchase of a business will include a date for closing when all the documents are signed and the consideration for the sale is provided by the buyer. Should the transaction involve the sale of real property, the closing would usually take place at a title company office. Should the sale of a business involve no real property, it is often more efficient for the closing to take place at a lawyer’s office.

At the end of the day, we seek to ensure that our buyer clients do not take on unanticipated risks, while we seek to limit post-closing indemnification claims against clients who are sellers.
