Earnouts in M&A Transactions: Key Structures and Recent Developments

Though useful in M&A transactions, earnouts are complicated, and their use often leads to disagreement and litigation.

Please join us for strategies on how to structure earnouts to minimize disputes. In this webinar, we will examine the prevailing use of earnouts, suggest ways to minimize the risk of disputes and address the negotiation and documentation of earnout provisions. Specifically, we will cover:

  • Recent developments in case law interpreting earnouts and addressing the duties of the buyer and rights of the seller
  • Key considerations in negotiating and drafting earnout provisions
  • Recent changes in accounting standards affecting the usefulness of earnouts
