If he enters the US before the take over - nothing and then consult an immigration attorney in the U.S. about possibly file an amended petition.
The rule in such mergers and acquisition scenarios is that if the successor of interest (the buyer) company purchased the "parent" company having been acquired, including all its immigration liabilities and obligations, meaning the foreign nationals holding temporary work visas, then husband's L-1B visa (and your L-2 visas) will be continue to be valid. Have husband inquire regarding that.

It depends on the nature of the acquisition - what exactly is being acquired. Presumably the acquiring company's immigration counsel can advise of any implications.
