It’s official; you’ve successfully completed the purchase or sale of a business during one of the most challenging M&A environments in recent years. You and your partners pat yourselves on the back, receive your fees and move onto your next transaction.
Not so fast…Did you know that two-thirds of deals never realize their original goals? A day, a month or a year from deal close you could find out that this deal isn’t what you were promised. The buyer or seller is angry, accusing the other of not holding up their end of the bargain and now it’s time to reconvene the players to resolve what is quickly turning into a major dispute.
The most common post‐deal disputes include: claims of material adverse change, earnout disputes (both the buyer and seller share the risk), post‐closing adjustments for working capital or net assets and indemnity or outright fraud. While some issues are unavoidable, there are numerous ways in which buyers and sellers can minimize risk early in the transaction process to avoid disputes after the deal has closed.
To address how to avoid these pitfalls, Merrill DataSite is pleased to bring together a group of seasoned deal professionals who will lend their expert insight into the challenges and solutions that often arise during the deal process, and how buyers and sellers can best prepare themselves to avoid issues and disputes.
