Share Purchase Agreement

  • A share purchase agreement (SPA) is a formal document detailing the terms & conditions and elements relating to the sale and purchase of shares within a company (including the terms which the buyer is willing to buy the company).
  • A share purchase allows the buyer to acquire all the interests and benefits of the business. As the ownership of the whole business passes to the buyer, there is a greater potential for taking on liabilities, which makes having the relevant documentation all the more important.
  • An SPA allows for clarity in relation to the terms & conditions of a sale or purchase of a business. This is essential to minimise the risk of disputes or any uncertainty between the parties involved.

Asset Purchase Agreement:

  • An asset purchase agreement (APA) is also a legal document, but instead of all interests being transferred, in an asset purchase, the buyer will only buy particular assets of the business.
  • The seller will continue to have ownership of the other assets not included in the asset purchase agreement. This allows the buyer to ‘cherry pick’ the assets they wish to purchase and for the seller to hold on to any assets he wishes to.
  • An APA allows for certainty between the parties as to what assets they will each be responsible for, limiting any confliction that may arise.
  • An APA may deal with aspects such as:
  • Employees
  • Intellectual Property
  • Premises
  • Contracts
  • Warranties
