    Event Synopsis:
    In an M&A transaction, potential business valuation differences between the buyer and the seller may arise. The parties may then agree to enter an earn-out arrangement to bridge this gap. Under this structure, the buyer of a business will be required to pay future payments, in addition to the initial payment, once the business achieves specific milestones.

    While an earn-out reconciles valuation differences, businesses must still be wary in negotiating this type of arrangement as it poses a myriad of risks, such as future disputes. It is, therefore, imperative that counsel is well-versed and critical in analyzing and drafting earn-out agreements to ensure that client’s rights are protected.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of earn-out agreements. Speakers will dig deeper as they discuss recent trends and developments and analyze critical issues and challenges. They will also offer risk mitigation techniques and best practices to avoid red flags.
    This LIVE Webcast will discuss the following:
    • Earn-out Provisions in Private M&A: An Overview
    • Structuring an Earn-out Agreement
    • Emerging Trends and Developments
    • Potentials and Pitfalls
    • Risk Mitigation Techniques
