The preparation of the text of the purchase agreement represents the final and crucial phase of the examination and negotiations of both participating parties. In addition to the mechanism for paying the purchase price, the purchase contract also captures the related key financial and commercial conditions, and the conclusion of the due diligence describes the rights and obligations of the buyer and seller, and sets out sanctions for non-compliance.


M&A Tips

Did you know that within M&A transactions in the Czech Republic:

  • The payout mechanism in the form of "closing accounts" dominates over the setting in the form of a "locked box"
  • Roughly half of the transactions were settled on the "closing" date, the remaining half included the settlement element through a deferred purchase price or the so-called "earn-out"
  • In more than 70% of them, possible future risks were reflected in the form of the so-called "indemnity"
  • Over 75% of transactions, where neither a sell-side nor a buy-side advisor was appointed, were not successfully finalized.
