The Process of Buying or Selling a Business: M&A Purchase Agreements

The purchase agreement is key in M&A transactions, detailing conditions for closure, business terms, asset delineation, due diligence, post-closing recovery, and transition covenants. Styled based on the transaction (asset, stock, merger), it's drafted post-due diligence, varying in length. It includes parties involved, assets, liabilities, purchase price details, closing process, representations, warranties, tax matters, other covenants, indemnification, and miscellaneous provisions. Structure is driven by buyer and seller preferences, affecting asset or stock purchase decisions and tax implications.
