Pinning Down The Purchase Price

Dear Selwyn

“Buyer remorse” is on the rise following 12 months of gloomy economic outlook. With buyers looking to clawback perceived overpayments, we are seeing a sharp uptick in disputes over purchase price adjustment mechanisms.

Not all price adjustment mechanisms are created equal. It’s never been so important to understand how to put together fair, clear and dispute-free provisions and how to optimise your chances of success should a disagreement arise.

Join us for a seminar full of practical advice and insights on price adjustment mechanisms. We will delve into:

  • an overview of the pros and cons of the main mechanisms that are used;
  • how to prevent the chance of a dispute arising in the first place; and
  • what to do if there is a disagreement after the deal has completed.
