How may businesses combine?
In accordance with Ukrainian law, mergers may be performed in two ways: as a consolidation and as a joining. Both types of merger entail termination of at least one merging company by means of transfer of all its assets, rights and obligations to its legal successor.
Consolidation is a merger when two or more companies merge, creating a new one. In this case the companies that merge cease their legal existence and all their assets, rights and obligations are transferred to a new company established as a result of the merger.
Joining is a merger when one company joins another existing company. In this case a company, which is joining to the existing company, ceases its legal existence and all its assets, rights and obligations are transferred to the existing company.
