Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions

Simply stated, mergers and acquisitions are legal methods where the assets, liabilities, and ownership of one business entity are transferred to another.

Although the two are often linked together, a merger and an acquisition are two distinctly different legal devices. An acquisition is generally the complete purchase of all or a substantial portion of stock and/or assets of another company, whereas, a merger occurs when two separate entities agree to become one entity.
