This merger agreement (Fusionsvertrag) is a Swiss-law governed agreement for an (intra-group) merger between a parent company (as absorbing and thus surviving company) and a subsidiary (as transferring company) in the form of a simplified merger (erleichterte Fusion). Please note that a merger between a subsidiary and its parent company where the subsidiary is the absorbing and thus surviving company can not be implemented by way of a simplified merger, but only by way of an ordinary merger. The agreement is drafted in German and is tailored for a merger between two corporations (Aktiengesellschaften). The agreement assumes that the parent company holds 100% of the shares of the subsidiary.

For a simplified merger (erleichterte Fusion), neither a merger report needs to be prepared, nor an examination of the merger agreement needs to be conducted, nor an inspection right to the shareholders needs to be granted, nor is it necessary to present the merger agreement to the shareholders for approval.

The merger is based on a merger balance sheet (annual balance sheet or interim balance sheet) which is to be attached to the agreement. Please note that a simplified merger is only possible if the merger balance sheet shows a surplus of assets.

For the effectiveness of the merger, the parent company needs to register the merger with the commercial register by way of an application to the commercial register. The signed merger agreement as well as board resolutions approving the merger (in case the merger agreement is not signed by all members of the board) are to be attached to such application. Further, the deletion of the subsidiary needs to be registered with the commercial register. Templates for any such applications and board resolutions are also available on PartnerVine.

Terms which are configurable to the user’s needs include:

  • Details of the parent company;
  • Details of the subsidiary;
  • Details regarding the employees of the involved companies; and
  • Details regarding the merger (i.e. type and date of the merger balance sheet, amounts of assets and liabilities to be transferred etc.).
