About this document
If you are buying a company which has one or more subsidiaries, additional provisions are required in the purchase agreement to cover that scenario. Additional and different warranties are also required. This version covers that situation.
It is an authoritative document which can be used for high value transactions and for any sort of business. We have assumed that the holding company owns real property. Just in case you also wish to consider document versions which cover only a single company, please refer to the table below.
|Company or Group||All Shares Bought/Sold||Future Profit Guarantee||Part payment in shares||Price for target profit||Retention of part cash||Full Warranties||Co owns real property|
With your document, we shall also provide an example form of disclosure letter. The detail is of course for you. We simply give you the style as an indication of how a disclosure letter works.
Suitability of this document
It is usual for the buyer to produce the sale document but there is no reason why the seller should not obtain an advantage by making the document his and thereby obtaining the advantage of preliminary editing in his favour. You may use this document:
- where the sale is of two or more companies;
- the company has real property;
- the price is paid in cash.
A word about warranties:
Warranties protect the interest of the buyer, who does not have the information available to the seller. It is fair and reasonable for a buyer to demand warranties and for a seller to give them. However, it is quite easy for a buyer to use warranties to "improve" his original deal. So, if you are a seller, do not give a warranty, if you do not know whether it is true, but do be prepared to "go and find out" information that could be within your knowledge.
