Takeover of companies has its rules and procedures. Hostile takeover (HTO) mostly starts by collection of information, activities of the company including its liabilities are tracked and a strategy is selected. The invader mostly has some collaborating persons inside of the company. In case of targeted SMEs, the company is chosen especially according to certain disproportions between the property, due liabilities, structure of owners, security of property and similar facts. The takeover may also have a liquidation character and the reason is usually exclusion of competition from the market. Countermeasures represent a combination of economic, information and legal analyses and a suggestion of appropriate protection tactics.
At the same time, resolution of receivables and especially liabilities, represents the first step to stabilization and safety of the company within protection against takeover or within effort to prevent insolvency.
