PEMS Co. International, Inc., agreed to find a buyer for Rupp Industries, Inc., for a com-mission of 2 percent of the purchase price, which was to be paid by the buyer. Using PEMS’s services, an investment group bought Rupp for $ 20 million and changed its name to Temp-Air, Inc. PEMS asked Temp-Air to pay a commission on the sale. Temp-Air refused, arguing that PEMS acted as a broker in the deal without a license. The applicable statute defines a broker as any person who deals with the sale of a business. If this statute was intended to protect the public, can PEMS collect its commission? Explain.
