The format of the transaction and the activities of the enterprise after the change of ownership
The subject of the sale is 100% of the shares in a limited liability company (s.r.o.)
Price: by agreement of the parties.
The following options for the sale of the company may be considered:
- The new owner, buying the company for a small amount, will further repay the company's debts at the expense of internal reserves and in the process of revitalizing the company.
- From the amount received for the sale of shares in the company, the existing debts of the company will be partially or fully repaid and the company will pass to the new owners "net" without debts or with significantly less debt.
The top management of the company is ready to continue its work after the change of ownership, but the most optimal seller seems to be a change in the company's management after its acquisition by the new owner. In this case, the current management of the company is ready to assist the new management (if it is interested) for a transitional period under a separate agreement with the new owner.
According to the estimates of the current owners and management of the enterprise, a possible change of ownership will not adversely affect the mood of engineering and technical specialists and the number of employees of the enterprise.
The purity of the transaction, the absence of hidden financial and legal obligations is guaranteed by the personal responsibility of the owners, the process of gradual transfer of management in accordance with the agreement, legal mechanisms and norms provided for in the Czech Republic.
