To Lock, or Not to Lock - Understanding and negotiating locked box and purchase price adjustment mechanisms in M&A transactions

Purchase price adjustment mechanisms help bridge the pricing gap between the commercial valuation agreed at signing and the financial position of the target at completion. Most M&A transactions use some type of adjustment mechanism, with “Locked Box” and “Completion Accounts” being the two predominant choices. Join our panel of speakers, Parveet Singh Gandoak, Jill Cooper and Michael Ng, as they discuss key concepts, market trends and tips for drafting and negotiating these finicky yet fundamental provisions.

Join us on the last Thursday of each month for the latest legal insights and a curated cocktail of the month. We hope to see you there!
