Event summary

Sometimes, when parties are buying or selling a company, they have to adjust the sale price after the deal closes. That process is often governed by a certain provision in the purchase-and-sale contract: the “post-closing price adjustment” provision. When the amount of the post-closing adjustment is disputed, that can trigger litigation. Frequently, litigation results from agreement provisions that are poorly drafted from an accounting perspective. This webinar presented by DGC highlights some of the pitfalls to avoid when drafting these provisions and demonstrates how careful and correct drafting can help prevent litigation.

Key Topics

• Common pitfalls in drafting post-closing purchase price adjustments
• Language that may lead to litigation or arbitration
• How to properly draft post-closing purchase price adjustment provisions
