Companies may cooperate in different forms and to varying degrees, from contractual cooperation on a one-off basis to participation in a joint venture.
Clear and balanced agreements
Because parties who want to cooperate often do so for a longer period of time, clear and balanced agreements are essential. These include (commercial and corporate governance) agreements about the actual cooperation as well as provisions for terminating the cooperation when parties no longer want to work together.
All these agreements promote mutual trust and guarantee the best possible result of a cooperation or participation. Moreover, in many cases a joint venture or participation may be a good precursor to a company acquisition, and may be used as a period in which to test a business case or bridge a period in which the necessary financial resources can be obtained.
