Business Sales Expertise
Carrying out a transaction on the share capital of a company is a very effective financing tool. This allows farmers to use their current leverage as well as the one of the company they are considering buying. Buying a company’s shares is not easy!
In addition to having to validate all the usual information, it is also necessary to carry out a due diligence and proceed to the issuing of a fiscal memo. It is imperative during these transactions to have a resourcefull person, who knows the different aspects and obligations of the professionals, lawyer, notary, taxman, accountant, agronomist etc. who are involved in the process, and who will be able to coordinate their efforts in order to effectively complete the transaction. Do not overlook the difficult aspects and negotiation between signing the promise to purchase and signing the deed of sale.
