English translation:merger agreement; shareholder meeting
Explanation:
This is what it smells like :-) : "By transfer of its entire assets in accordance with the merger agreement of March 14, 1996, which was approved by the shareholder meetings of the partitipating companies on the same date, the company under liquidation will be merged without settlement [of its obligations] through absorption by[.....] Ochtrup." ---Sources: Romain: Dicitonary of Legal and Commercial Terms; SchäferWirtschaftwörterbuch; Zahn, Bank u. Börsenwesen. I'm NOT a legal translator, so take this with a grain of salt and run this by one of your legal/financial translator friends.
