Suzanne Saxman, partner of Seyfarth's Corporate department and chair of the Mergers & Acquisitions practice group, Aaron Gillett, associate in Seyfarth's Corporate department and M&A group, and Whitney Schmidt, associate in Seyfarth's Corporate department and M&A group, are presenting "What's Market in Middle-Market M&A Indemnity Deal Terms" at the ACG Chicago Sunrise Session on June 6, 2018.
Is the 2018 middle-market M&A environment still seller friendly? How can you minimize risk in your next M&A transaction? Seyfarth attorneys will provide a “state of the market” and overview of key deal terms comprising the “indemnity package” included in almost all private target acquisition agreements to address a seller’s potential post-closing liability to a buyer and set the parameters of a buyer’s ability to claw back purchase price from a seller. Presenters will also discuss how the purchase of representation and warranty (“R&W”) insurance continues to be a powerful tool used by buyers to make their acquisition proposal more attractive, and how 2017 data reflects the increase in the use of R&W insurance.
