Section 371 of the Companies Act provides for the compulsory acquisition of the remaining shares of a company when the holders of at least 90% of the shares of the same company are transferred. In the event of the acquisition of a business or asset, ownership of assets (including facilities, equipment and machinery) is transferred by delivery and in accordance with the terms of the underlying asset acquisition contract. As a general rule, an asset sale agreement contains a ownership clause in which the legal and economic ownership of commercial assets is considered to be transferred to the buyer by delivery after completion. Ancillary property assistance documents (for example. B sales bill) are also provided.
