Here are several advantages of an asset purchase transaction: The seller`s shareholders are generally opposed to the acquisition of assets, for the following reasons: securities to assets. The purchaser must acquire ownership of each asset he acquires – which, for many locked-in assets, can involve considerable legal work.

As companies attempt to restore the loss of value due to the economic downturn of the COVID 19 pandemic, they can focus on acquiring strategic assets. In these bolt-on-acquisitions, the promise of value is clear and sometimes immediate. Larger transactions, including full-fledged transactions, may be less frequent. The decision whether or not to execute a deal is influenced in part by the expected positive effects on earnings per share (EPS). This ratio is often reflected in board reports, which support investment decision and shareholder communication.
The main advantage of an asset acquisition is the ability to acquire a specific asset or group of assets without taking over any liabilities or liabilities. The structure of the transaction itself can affect the tax benefits of acquiring assets, and Allen Barron`s tax lawyers support and inform many technical aspects of asset acquisition. In general, restructuring the “base” in acquired assets allows your business to achieve a higher return on investment over a much shorter period of time. You may agree to accept a specific loan or commitment related to a particular asset as part of the sales contract, but your commitment is limited to that quantifiable debt, instead of the general form of potential liabilities you assume when you purchase shares. As a general rule, asset purchase agreements are generally preferred by the “buyer” in the transaction. Normalized net operating assets are generally included in an asset purchase agreement. Net interest capital consists of items such as debtors, stocks and lenders. As a result, in the case of asset acquisition, the timing of the conditional counterparty costs will be different and EBITDA will generally be higher than in the case of a business acquisition.
An asset agreement can have several advantages over a share deal, especially for the buyer. This transaction allows the buyer to selectively acquire certain assets and not others. In addition, it also allows the buyer to avoid making commitments that he does not want. This would not be the case in the case of the acquisition of shares which, as a rule, is accompanied by the agreement with all the seller`s debts. In addition, asset agreements can be designed to provide a tax advantage.

Our tax lawyers advise clients on whether the taxable base of an asset should be “increased” (e.g. B equipment purchase) when a higher base allows for higher depreciation in a relatively short period of time (3 to 7 years).
Assets that are depreciated more slowly.. B such as “good will” should receive a lower valuation, since their value must be depreciated over an extended period of time (15 years). Communication with stakeholders on the nature of the agreement must be transparent in order to enable them to adapt their models appropriately.
