Why use M&A insurance?

There are numerous reasons why parties and advisors involved with a corporate transaction will use M&A insurance:

  • Distressed transactions: the seller may be unable / unwilling to provide recourse to the buyer for breaches of the sale agreement warranties.
  • Allow a seller to achieve a clean exit particularly in a competitive auction process.
  • Address liability associated with an identified exposure, often discovered by the buyer during due diligence
  • Provide buyers with alternative or improved warranty protection over that agreed by sellers
  • Help smooth the deal negotiation, warranty discussions and transaction process
  • Differentiate a bid during an auction process
  • Enable a deal to proceed rather than fail
