In Saudi Arabia, the most popular forms of incorporation are as (1) limited liability companies or (2) joint-stock companies.  Businesses usually combine via private purchases (acquisitions) of the company shares of a particular company or its assets, or in the acquisition of publicly listed companies.  

Private acquisitions can be accomplished efficiently by forming a joint venture between the two existing businesses, for example.   Acquisitions of a publicly listed company are more complicated under Saudi law.

In any merger or acquisition, it is extremely important to proceed in full compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations while being as cost-efficient and time-sensitive as possible.  How well this can be accomplished will be judged in part on the particular industry that is involved: some areas of commerce are more easily merged (or acquired) than others.

Add an international component to this complexity, and the need for experience and savvy Saudi legal representation becomes critical.   At Alsabhan & Alajaji Pinsent Masons LLC, lawyers are able to assist clients in all forms of mergers and acquisitions (M&As), specifically international or multinational transactions including the tasks of:
