Corporate Restructuring in General
Corporate restructuring refers to changes in the company’s operations and structure. Corporate restructuring often happens as a result of a planned or completed corporate acquisition [6.3.1 Corporate Acquisitions]. Such changes in the legal structure of limited liability companies may occur also as independent processes, unrelated to corporate acquisitions because of e.g. risk management or reasons related to taxation.
Mergers of limited liability companies [6.4.2 Merger] into one company and demergers of limited liability companies [6.4.3 Demerger].
Changes in the form of incorporation e.g. change of a partnership or a limited liability partnership into a limited liability company [1.3.6 Change of a Corporate Form and Termination of the Business Activities], can also be viewed as corporate restructuring. Dissolution of a company is also closely related to corporate restructuring, and is discussed separately with respect to limited liability companies [6.4.4 Dissolution of a Company][188.8.131.52 Dissolution].[184.108.40.206 Dissolution]
