According to § 134, it is mandatory for all private companies to hold a general meeting. These companies are required to hold their meetings within six months of the end of their financial year. The sellers` point of view. Due to the generally comprehensive nature of the warranty coverage requested by the buyer, sellers often have to provide warranties that, if not qualified, are not correct. To deal with the risk that a warranty is false and leads to a possible warranty claim, sellers prepare a “disclosure letter” for the buyer. This letter serves to qualify the guarantees with factual information that exposes the true situation. To the extent that sellers correctly qualify a warranty by disclosure, they cannot be sued for breach of that warranty. As a seller, you cannot contact another seller. As far as possible, completion will take place at the same time as replacement, but sometimes this will not be possible.

Certain conditions may have to be met or the consent of third parties may have to be obtained before completion can occur, and it may be economically too sensitive to obtain such consents or the resolution of these conditions before replacement. In this scenario, there is a delay before completion, while buyers and sellers ensure that these consents and conditions are processed. Buyers and sellers should ensure that they are aware of the impact on pension plans when buying or selling a target business or business. This is a complex area and potential responsibilities and obligations, especially those related to final wage systems, can be significant. Members and Directors: As mentioned above, to register legally, a limited liability company must have a minimum number of two and a maximum number of 200 members. This is a legal requirement as required by the Companies Act 2013. This guide covers topics of interest to buyers and sellers, including the business structure, process, and key documents. Traditionally, the buyer`s lawyers send a detailed request for information to the sellers or their lawyers to get as much useful information as possible. These requests usually cover all aspects of the target business or the business to be acquired. Sellers and their team collect the requested information and make it available to the buyer`s lawyers.

The use of electronic data rooms as a means of housing and accessing this information is becoming increasingly widespread. The buyer`s lawyers will evaluate the information provided and will usually prepare a due diligence report for the buyer, highlighting issues of concern and proposing protective measures if necessary. The purpose and level of detail of this report varies from transaction to transaction, depending on the particular needs of the buyer (or, in the case of bank or external financing, the requirements of the lender). Safeguards also fulfill the dual function of encouraging sellers to provide more information about the business or commercially in the form of disclosures beyond the information extracted during the due diligence process. You cannot contact the seller because the company`s entry is pending. The registered office of the company is the place where the main business of the company is conducted and where all documents are placed. For many involved, a sale or acquisition is likely to be a one-time or rare event. For a glossary of common terms used in sales and acquisitions of private companies, see the PDF version of this guide. The Companies Act of 2013 set out the procedure for the liquidation of a defunct company.

A company that no longer exists or is dormant can be supplemented by an expedited procedure that requires the submission of Form STK-2. Therefore, Form STK-2 is required to liquidate a business that no longer exists, and there is no additional procedure for this. Form STK-2 must be completed with the Registrar of Corporations and must be duly signed by the director of the corporation authorized to do so by its board of directors. The voluntary liquidation of a company requires a long compliance with the procedures. Certain mandatory requirements must be met to voluntarily close a business. A company can be dissolved voluntarily in the situations listed below: closing, especially in the case of larger and more complex transactions, traditionally involves a formal closing discussion involving the buyer, seller, his lawyers and other advisors. This can often be a lengthy meeting, as lawyers verify that all formalities are in place, purchase funds are available, and all additional documents required to complete the sale and purchase are ready to be signed. It is not uncommon for negotiations between buyer and seller to be concluded at the beginning of this meeting. If the exchange and conclusion do not take place at the same time, there can be a long meeting at any stage. Acquisition of other documents: For the electronic submission of documents, each company must obtain a digital signature certificate that verifies the authenticity of the documents. In addition, in a company that employs professionals (secretary, auditor, accountant, etc.) for various activities, certifications by these professionals are required.

The sale of a limited liability company is also a kind of voluntary liquidation. This can be done through the sale of shares in the company (sale of the majority stake of the company). Technically, this is not an effective liquidation, but the shares are transferred to another natural or legal person and the majority shareholders are relieved of their shares and responsibilities. Once completed, ownership of the company or business to be acquired will be transferred to the buyer. In a business sale, only the assets and liabilities that the buyer expressly agrees to buy are acquired, and everything else remains with the company. If the buyer suspects that there are unknown liabilities in the business or is troubled by a particular aspect of the business, they may prefer to structure the transaction as a business sale – so that they can “choose” from the assets and liabilities of the business and take only the risks they understand and deem acceptable. One asset/liability that the buyer can`t easily leave behind, however, is the target company`s workforce – see Employees and Pensions below. Any company registered in India under the Companies Act that has committed an illegal act, a fraudulent act or even if it has contributed to fraudulent or illegal activities, an act, that company would be forcibly liquidated by the Tribunal.

In case of sale of shares, only the ownership of the shares of the company is transferred. Although the company`s shareholders change, its assets (including its business contracts, agreements and licenses) will remain in the company. From the outside, little seems to have changed and customers and suppliers will generally like to deal with the company as before. Certain contracts (e.B. However, financing agreements and other long-term arrangements) may require the consent of the other party if a change in ownership of the company is anticipated. It is important to identify these contracts early in the process. In a private corporation, a minimum of 2 directors and 2 members are required. All these members have limited liability and the maximum number of members has been increased from 50 to 200. Selling a business is such a tedious task that if you try to sell yourself, the value of the business can decrease. Negotiations can be explosive and emotional and are best conducted by experienced mediators. Professional sellers are only associated with real buyers. Breach of warranty.

The rules for claiming and calculating damages on a warranty claim are complicated, but essentially the damages in a warranty claim are usually based on the loss of the buyer`s negotiation – is the acquired business/business worth less than what the buyer paid for it because the warranty was wrong? We will objectively evaluate your entire company to understand its demand. .
