An asset sale is when the buyer and seller decide which assets and liabilities are being bought and sold, and a buyer can exclude unwanted assets or liabilities. A stock sale is when the buyer is purchasing stock in the company, and purchasing all the assets and liabilities that are attributed to the company.
Contracts are considered an asset that can be acquired, but typically, consent of the other party to the contract is required for its transfer.
If the corporation does not have a lot of shareholders, this would also be a less complicated method of acquiring a company. Also, in a stock purchase, because the buyer is purchasing the whole company, the buyer can obtain non-assignable contracts, permits, or licenses that would normally require consent of another party. The drawbacks are that along with the good, the buyer would also take on all the liabilities and debts of the company.
