What Is An "Asset Purchase Agreement"?
An asset purchase agreement is a legal contract providing for the transfer and sale of the assets of a business. In New York and New Jersey, the majority of business purchase and sale transactions occur by way of an "asset purchase" (compared to a stock purchase). The asset purchase agreement identifies the purchase price, the assets to be transferred and the inclusion of other conditions of the business sale, such as non-compete covenants, due diligence contingencies, lease contingencies and lease assignment obligations.
