What is business acquisition?

Business acquisition refers to the process of purchasing an existing business or corporation. Business acquisitions can be structured in various ways, including asset purchases, stock purchases, or mergers. Business acquisitions are typically used by companies as a way to quickly expand their operations, acquire new customers or products, or enter new markets.
