Share Sale Agreements

What is a share sale agreement?

A share sale agreement often occurs when the shares of a business , usually a limited company, are being sold .

Buying or Selling a company

The share sale agreement means that the buyer gains control of the shares being purchased and usually therefore ownership of the business( dependant upon the amount of shares being purchased)  and continues to operate it with the existing employees, premises and contracts and clients and any debt that the company previously had.
