M&A cover is insurance for the contractual Representations & Warranties that form the basis of transactions. Policies provide financial remuneration for liability resulting from unidentified breaches explicitly made by a seller to a buyer in the Sale and Purchase agreement governing the acquisition of a company.
Such warranties and indemnities can cover tax, environmental litigation, contractual, financial, intellectual property and other matters where the outcome is uncertain, unknown or unknowable.
Private equity, venture capital and law firms have all recognised that M&A insurance offers more than pure risk transfer – it is economically competitive with traditional solutions of an escrow, as well as providing a much clearer and cleaner solution to the purchasing party. Additionally banks, accountants and other deal negotiation specialists increasingly prefer the financial security of an A rated insurer as a risk transfer method within deals.
Litigation Buy-Out coverage can take an unknown liability off the table by transferring the outcome to an insurer.
