It involves several legal, financial, and operational steps. Conduct a thorough due diligence process to evaluate the financial, legal, operational, and regulatory aspects of the target company.

This step helps you identify any potential risks or liabilities associated with the acquisition:

  • Determine the value of the target company based on its assets, liabilities, financial performance, and market conditions.
  • Negotiate the terms of the acquisition, including purchase price, payment structure, and any contingencies.
  • Once the key terms are agreed upon, draft and sign a non-binding MOU or LOI. This document outlines the intent of both parties to proceed with the acquisition and serves as a framework for the final agreement.
  • Engage legal advisors who are experienced in UAE corporate and commercial law to guide you through the acquisition process.
  • Ensure compliance with UAE regulations, including foreign ownership restrictions and industry-specific regulations.
  • Prepare a comprehensive SPA (for share acquisitions) or APA (for asset acquisitions) that outlines the detailed terms and conditions of the acquisition, including representations, warranties, and post-closing obligations.
  • Depending on the nature of the business and the industry, you may need to obtain approvals from relevant government authorities or regulatory bodies.
  • Finalize the payment structure and arrange for the transfer of funds as per the agreed terms.
  • Complete the legal transfer of ownership through the signing and notarization of the SPA or APA, and ensure that all required documents are submitted to the relevant authorities.
  • Update the legal documents and licenses to reflect the change of ownership.
  • Appoint new directors or management if necessary, and update the company’s structure as required.
  • Address employee matters, such as transferring contracts, obtaining necessary work permits, and complying with labor laws.
