  • Financial risk?
    Not existent, because the licenses are only effectively transferred to the purchaser after the receipt of payment.
    The purchaser receives a transparent purchase price including all extra charges like a possibly pending maintenance, provision and last but not least the fee for the pre-owner.

  • Legal risk?
    Not existent, because on request he licenses are also transferred from the licensor to the purchaser. (The transfer recognizes the purchaser e. g. by the updated maintenance invoice.)

  • Technical risk?
    Not existent, because also the pre-owned licenses can get a maintenance contract.
