In the event of a divestiture, the company to be divided shall transfer part of its property to one acquiring company or to several such companies. In the event of divestiture, the company to be divided shall continue to exist. The acquiring company is a newly formed company. In the event of a divestiture, all or part of the company being divided shall become members of the acquiring company or become the only member of the acquiring company, in accordance with the decision on the company's separation. The reorganisation shall be carried out in two stages.
If the draft reorganisation agreement has been submitted to the Enterprise Register and is attached to the company registration case, but is amended - the company must re-initiate the reorganisation process by submitting the amended draft reorganisation contract to the Enterprise Register. A meeting of participants shall, not earlier than one month after the publication of the draft amended reorganisation agreement, examine the draft contract and take a decision regarding reorganisation. If the company had already issued a notice to creditors regarding the reorganisation in the official publication Latvijas Vēstnesis, the notification to creditors shall be repeated after the decision of the meeting of the members.
At the same time, it should be noted that if one of the companies involved in the reorganisation changed the name or was transformed into another type of company during the reorganisation, it should not be considered as the basis for amending the draft reorganisation agreement.
We point out that, according to the Commercial Law, members/shareholders have the right to participate and vote at the meeting remotely or to vote before the meeting. Read more in the Explanatory to Remote Participation in Meetings of Members, Shareholders and Members.
