Thank you for reading the Tribunal`s guide to the main features of a purchase and sale agreement. To continue the learning, please consider these additional CFI resources: A sales contract (SPA) is a binding legal contract between two parties, which requires a transaction between a buyer and a seller. SPAs are generally used for real estate transactions, but they are present in all industries. The agreement concludes the terms of sale and is the culmination of negotiations between buyer and seller. In the simplest form of a sale in which a business for sale is 100% owned by a single person or parent company and purchased by a single buyer, there are only two parties to the agreement. However, additional parties may be involved if, for example. B, several shareholders of the company for sale are involved. In these cases, each shareholder must enter into the sale agreement to sell his shares. Other documents can be signed in addition to spa, such as the shareholders` pact. B, the put/call option and others. Establishing important financial and accounting conditions in these documents can be an even more complex task than developing a DSG itself.
A sales contract (SPA) is the most widely used document in commercial transactions, demining operations of raw materials, shares, companies and real estate, these types of contracts are essential for commercial activity. To run a business, you need the protection of a well-developed SPA, but often buyers or sellers don`t even take the basic steps necessary to protect their own interests. The last expected phase of an ATM process is called the sales contract or SPA. After all the due diligence and if a buyer has analyzed the actual state of the business for sale, it is finally time to represent the price of the contract and the sale price of the business. This is therefore the document that will be formalized in an authentic deed and which will ultimately be presented to a notary, including all the conditions of sale. The terms of the sales and sale agreement include, among other things, prohibitions on competition. These clauses are intended to prevent the seller from setting up a parallel business and taking customers from you. It aims to protect the goodwill of the company. The content of a share purchase agreement depends on the complexity of the transaction. Nevertheless, there are a number of key elements that are contained in each spa: once the sales contract is concluded, the sales contract remains an important reference document, since it covers the operation of a possible contract and contains restrictive agreements, confidential obligations, guarantees and compensation, all of which can remain very relevant.

The agreement covers all pre-negotiation deposits and acknowledges parts of the agreement that have already been completed.
The agreement also records the date of the final sale. Unless the parties agree otherwise, the sales contract will be cancelled if all of the above conditions are not met on an agreed date (the “Longstop” date). It is therefore essential that the G.S.O. determines how to determine when the conditions are met and when they can no longer be met.
