Share purchase agreement (Dutch)

-- For sellers, purchasers and their advisors --

Straightforward Dutch law governed shares sale and purchase agreement (SPA) in Dutch between a single seller and a single purchaser. The SPA contains balanced language to facilitate a transaction on an 'as is, where is' basis, such as the sale of a distressed asset.

The SPA assumes that all shares in the capital of a Dutch private company with limited liability (besloten vennootschap) are transferred, which can be easily amended in the document. This company can serve as the single target entity or the holding company of a larger group of entities. The agreement comes with a set of fundamental representations and warranties, excluding representations and warranties regarding the business and its activities.

Terms of this document configurable to your needs include:

  • Details of the parties and the target company or group
  • Purchase price
  • Timing of completion
  • Resignation and appointment of directors at completion
  • Limitation of liability
  • Dispute settlement
  • Details of civil-law notary
