To buy or not to buy a going concern? Alternative M&A transaction structuring in Bulgaria

Unsurprisingly, the most common M&A transaction structures in Bulgaria are share deals, in which the target company is acquired with all its assets and liabilities, and asset deals, in which individual assets are acquired. But these structures may not always serve the parties' commercial needs. A share deal may not be possible if the buyer's due diligence revealed a title issue with the shares, a minority shareholder does not consent to a 100 % sale, or the company may have a separate line of business that the seller wishes to retain. A pure asset deal may be impractical if the buyer aims to acquire a business (e.g. a shopping mall as an operational asset) and not an individual asset (e.g. the shopping mall as a building), or where the transfer of contracts and certain relevant liabilities that form part of the business requires third-party consents.

Multiple voting: a tool to attract investors?

One-share one-vote has long been the European Commission's mantra in establishing a level playing field for investors. The conventional wisdom was that a shareholder's influence should be aligned with their economic investment in and exposure to the company. But the success of the "FANG" stocks and the US governance model of giving ultimate control to founders while also selling shares and bringing in new investors has led to a rethink. In response, the European Commission recently proposed a draft directive on the issuance of shares with multiple voting rights in an IPO.
