Clean Shell

A shell company which has no liabilities or other negative attributes as perceived by an operating business seeking to merge with it.

Additional Comments:

Start with a public company clean shell. Many shells are created for the express purpose of merging with a private company. These shells have no predecessor entities and, as a result, little baggage in the way of a business failure or other skeletons in the closets.
