He has more than 20 years of experience in the professional services sector, including 15 years of work on multiple mergers… More transition service agreements are common when a large company sells a less sophisticated buyer or a newly created company to a large company that has not yet assembled the back-office infrastructure.

A Transitional Service Agreement (ASD) offers significant benefits when used wisely, such as. B faster conclusion, smoother transition, lower transition costs, better end-of-life solutions and clean separation. However, divestitures that distort the TSA can take much longer than expected.
