An Asset Sale Contract is an agreement between the existing owner of an asset (usually referred to as the “seller” or “vendor”) and a third party that wishes to buy or purchase the asset (usually referred to as the “buyer” or “purchaser”). The asset may be tangible (e.g. equipment or stock) or intangible (e.g. intellectual property (IP) or goodwill of a business).
