asset purchase agreement

An asset purchase agreement is a contract in which a buyer (person or entity) agrees to purchase assets from the seller (a person or entity) for a stated price. Asset purchase agreements are usually used when one business wants to purchase some but not all of the assets of another business, and when the buyer might be concerned about taking on liabilities associated with the selling company. These are a couple of ways in which an asset purchase agreement is different from a merger agreement in which two or more companies merge to create a new combined organization, or an acquisition agreement in which the buying company acquires the selling company in its entirety.
