Significant negative effects (“MAE”) are used to determine a threshold to measure the negative effects of an event on the target operation. A buyer wants to protect himself from the acquisition of a business that has changed significantly since the implementation of the G.S.O. (usually when there is a delay in the financial statements). ADs are generally used to describe representations, guarantees and alliances. Therefore, a GSB may contain a condition that allows one party to refuse to enter into a deal if the other party has undergone a DEA between the execution of the BSG and the closure (a pickup). An implementation provision has the effect of terminating the declarations and guarantees made at the time of the closure of the OSG. MAE is negotiated by the parties and should be clearly expressed in the definitions of the OSG. The extent of the definition of DMA depends on the nature of the transaction, the industry and the bargaining power of the parties. This is because the parties sometimes feel it is appropriate to submit the final conclusion of the purchase transaction to a number of conditions that must be met within a specified time frame. For example, obtaining prior administrative authorization necessary for the transfer, the favourable resolution of a dispute in which the company to be acquired is currently involved, etc. This is why signing is a “promise to purchase” that is subject to a number of requirements. Preconditions or closing conditions are provisions that must be agreed upon by the parties before the acquisition can be completed. Previous conditions are usually assigned to a particular party, but some may be mutually applicable.
When a closing condition is not met, the consideration generally has the right to abandon the transaction without any liability. This protects the parties from not getting what they negotiated for. In the case of a deferred conclusion, events may occur after the execution of the G.S.O., which require a party to terminate the G.S.O. before closing (by mutual agreement or due to the occurrence – or absence of events – of certain events). The agreement also contains the usual assurances and guarantees of both parties, as well as other customary provisions. As a key component of an GSB, this section of the agreement generally indicates the number of shares to be acquired and indicates the rights, securities and shares of the shares that the purchaser has acquired. This section should also indicate the purchase price of the shares and their down payment (cash, purchaser securities, repurchase of bonds and liabilities, exchange of assets (real estate, private property, IP, etc.) or a combination of the above, as well as the date and place of the transaction. In this context, it should also be indicated whether the execution of the GTS and the closure will occur simultaneously or whether there will be a discrepancy between the execution and the conclusion (a deferred conclusion). Deferred closures are common and may be necessary for a variety of reasons, including the need for various administrative authorizations and authorizations and, in some cases, the purchaser may need time to arrange third-party financing (as may be the case in a private equity scenario). In some cases, whether concurrent or deferred, the full purchase price is not paid at closing, part of which must be paid at certain future events.
