Their complexity, the different elements that compose them (software, equipment, specific developments, etc.) as well as the data they process often complicate the organization of the transition and subsequent separation. The development of an information system takes time and it is therefore recommended to create a transitional services contract to ensure the extent, quality and sustainability of these services after the transfer. The Transition Services Agreement defines the conditions under which the transferring entity will provide, during the transitional period, the IT services that have so far benefited the divested business or the divested entity that is foreign to the transferring group. The following comments and questions better represent „things to ask yourself“, not „this is what you need to do to have successful ASD“ – apart from the fact that all participants should be communicated and that the agreement should of course be very well detailed. We frequently intervene for the elaboration of contracts for provisional IT services (or the IT part of a more general TSA covering all provisional services), both for assignees and for assignors. We are particularly solicited in carve-out operations. A transition service agreement (TSA) is an agreement between a buyer and a seller in which the seller enters into its services and know-how with the buyer for a certain period of time in order to support the buyer and get used to its newly acquired assets, infrastructure, systems, etc. The carve-out allows companies that are too indebted.b to sell and sell part of their activities.c) The carve-out also allows some groups to divest themselves of loss-making or even loss-making activities, not „Core Business“ that they do not have in hand to focus on the profitable activities they want to keep. . .
