Who needs Representations & Warranties Insurance?

Mergers and acquisitions (M&As) comes with a hefty amount of risk. Consider what would happen if a buyer claimed you misrepresented earnings or you face back-taxes because of an audit. This policy serves as an excellent negotiating tool for sellers, often ensuring more lenient indemnification terms and removes the need for an escrow hold-back.

Brokers, sellers & buyers

Business brokers use an R&W insurance policy to help to simplify and speed up negotiation of the acquisition agreement. Get more info for business brokers

The seller can improve the condition of the deal, provide a cleaner exit, reduce or eliminate the traditional seller’s indemnity. Get more info for business sellers

The buyer who wants to transfer M&A fears and risks to an insurer can make buyers’ bids seem more attractive & help eliminate the need for escrow.

What's covered under Representations & Warranties Insurance?

Mergers and acquisitions are on the rise; however, so is post-acquisition litigation. Sellers involved in these types of ventures face a barrage of law suits if the deal goes bad. This policy protects sellers against the risk of costly litigation and risk of forfeiting of escrow funds after a merger or acquisition.

Affordable protection

Reps & Warranty insurance covers all breaches of the sell-side's representations and warranties made within the purchase agreement.

The seller is covered but only to the extent where the seller was not aware of such an incorrect representation or warranty.

The buyer is covered but only to the extent of being made a loss payee on all claim settlements made on the seller's policy.
