When operating results are poor and there are no successors to leadership positions, if a purchaser can not be found in timely fashion, the company

the company runs the risk of going bankrupt. By transferring the company to a third party in a cooperative manner, you not only resolve the

problem of not having management successors, but the company itself will likely grow through the infusion of capital, management know how,

and technology from the parent. In addition, you will be able to keep employees of the acquired company employed.
