Product description

Private M&A in Hong Kong details the sale and purchase of shares, one of the most common forms of corporate acquisition in the territory. By acquiring part or all of the share capital of a target company, the investor can exercise control over the target company as well as its businesses and assets. Many parties tend to opt for sale of shares over sale of assets because they are simpler and more straightforward. However, as the subject of the transaction involves shares in the target company, parties should carefully consider certain common legal issues when structuring a share acquisition. Private M&A in Hong Kong includes practical examples and explanatory notes to exemplify the procedures and issues in private M&A investments, and illustrates the key considerations involved in such transactions. This book will be a good resource for anyone seeking to understand the main issues, common procedures and documentation involved in private M&A transactions in a common law jurisdiction.
