This course is about the acquisition of a business unit. Our negotiation team will represent a potential Buyer, which is a medium sized company in Finland. We will discuss the possibility of acquiring a business unit in the USA. The potential seller is a multinational industrial corporation with headquarters in the USA and operations in a number of countries on various continents. The division under consideration is a relatively small unit of this giant company.

 

The acquisition of a business unit can be structured in at least three ways: a Merger, a Purchase of Assets or a Purchase of Shares. In this case, a Merger is not possible and we cannot merge our company with the seller.  The unit, which is offered for sale is an integral part of a large corporation. Therefore, there are no shares to purchase. It follows that we can only discuss the third alternative which is the Asset Purchase.

 

The term asset purchase in this course will be used with the understanding that the negotiating team coming from Finland has the full intention to continue the business after acquisition. The negotiating team is also thinking about the possibility of introducing new products in the U.S. and Canadian markets.
