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.

In a recent judgment in Case C-106/22, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that under one of Hungary's foreign direct investment screening regimes the objective of securing a regional supply of gravel, sand and clay for the construction industry cannot justify restrictions on freedom of establishment.
