What is an Acquisition Transaction?
An acquisition transaction is a contract between two companies where one company purchases and takes control of the other company. The contract states who the companies are, which is the purchaser, and which is being taken over. The acquisition transaction also states when the acquisition will take place and what will happen to the existing employees at the acquired company.
The purpose of the acquisition transaction is to provide vital structure to the acquisition process, which helps things move as smoothly as possible. This ensures that both companies can easily transition into their new roles.
