Among the myriad acquisitions, mergers, assets sales and other transactions that are consummated every day by companies engaged in the business of manufacturing, distributing or selling products, there is hardly a transaction imaginable that does not somehow implicate a precedent corporate entity. A corporation that “succeeds” to another company’s operations may be deemed responsible for the latter’s liabilities, including claims with respect to products manufactured, sold or distributed before the acquisition.
