Major risks and liabilities no longer have to kill a transaction
Most mergers and acquisitions reveal sticking points that leave both sides of the table scratching their heads for a solution. But with increasing success, dealmakers today are turning to customized deal facilitation insurance solutions that offload tricky pain points such as pending litigation, environmental concerns and even legacy tax issues.
Unlike a traditional representations and warranties policy, which protects a world of unknowns, coverage can be tailored to pinpoint specific issues and remove them from the bargaining table. Highly specialized M&A insurance brokers can draft policies to address many different problems and shop the customized coverage to a host of underwriters who understand mergers and acquisitions.
