Due Diligence and Pre-sale business preparation

Selling a business is rarely as simple as accepting an offer and then moving on to close the deal. Once an offer has been accepted, the buyer's due diligence process can identify issues that could jeopardize the deal, as well as negotiating the non-economic aspects of the deal. 

Common barriers include the tax implications of selling assets instead of shares, non-compete agreements, damages, contracts with customers or suppliers, intellectual property issues, and retention of key employees. Faro Capital works with clients (and potential clients) to identify these issues before the sale begins and develop creative solutions that reduce the likelihood of future surprises. 

What documents need to be prepared before starting the process: Certificates about the absence of debt and the absence of a decision and check information from all kinds of registers (property rights; tax authorities; debts; court decisions) Ideally, each direction is checked by an expert in his field: accounting and taxes - auditor; corporate papers - corporate lawyer; permits and licenses - a lawyer specializing in this. 

The process of transferring a company always has a share of risk. We will help you minimize possible risks when buying

Сompanies Reorganization 

Reorganization of companies can have several reasons, ranging from tax optimization, structuring assets to selling a business, or implementing a strategic partnership.


Types of Company Reorganizations:

Transformation.

Merging.

Absorption / accession.

Section.

  •  А transformation of a legal entity is a procedure whose purpose is to change the organizational and legal form of a company, for example, the transformation of an LLC into a CJSC. In the process of transformation, the LLC company ceases to exist by establishing a new legal entity. The legal successor of the liquidated TOV is a new legal entity. It should be noted that the transformation does not provide for an unscheduled inspection of the enterprise. This is the only type of reorganization in which no audit is carried out by the fiscal authorities. TIN in case of transformation does not change. The number of Members or shareholders of the new company and the distribution of % of the shares of the legal entity of the discontinued activity, and of the newly created company must be the same. The transformation does not provide for a change in the composition of the founders and the size of shares.
  • А merger of legal entities is the process of liquidation of two or more legal entities and the formation of one company on their basis. The newly created company is the legal successor of all rights and obligations of the terminated legal entity. During the merger, an unscheduled audit of all terminated legal entities is carried out by the fiscal authorities. As a result, a new company is established, while the assets of the discontinued companies are accepted by a deed of transfer to the balance of the newly formed company. In the constituent documents of such a company, there is a note that the legal entity was created through a merger. On average, the procedure takes about two months. А merger of a company is the liquidation of a company with the transfer of all obligations, rights and assets to the balance sheet of another legal entity. This is one of the most common M&A procedures. The procedure allows you to increase the size of the authorized capital and assets through consolidation. Acquisition of a company through a takeover in Ukraine is not often used, as there are financial risks and the process takes a long time. Liquidation of the affiliated company is carried out after the Fiscal check, verification and approval of the deed of transfer. The whole process takes about two months or more.
  • Section - the process of liquidation of a legal entity, while all liabilities and rights of assets are transferred to several newly created companies. This procedure is primarily used from antitrust optimization in order to unbundle the business. This section is often used in the case of the division of the company between partners. When splitting, a check is carried out and the distribution balance is approved.


The reorganization procedure, whether it be a merger, takeover, division or reorganization of a company, involves making a record of the beginning of the reorganization procedure by the state registrar, then the deadline for accepting a statement of creditors' claims begins, which is 2 months. During this time, it is prohibited to make any changes to the statutory documents of the company. If the reorganized enterprise has debts to creditors, the procedure can be stopped until the debt is repaid.

The reorganizationis a rather complex legal procedure that requires an integrated approach. Competent planning of the procedure is an essential part of the process. If you are faced with the task of reorganizing a company or a group of companies, you need to develop a clear algorithm of actions before starting the process. And here you cannot do without an experienced lawyer and accountant (or auditor).
