Jones Day's 2020 Speaker Series: M&A Update: Post-Closing Earnouts

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST

Market disruptions like COVID-19 and related economic downturns tend to create dislocation in the M&A market around valuation metrics. In order to transact, buyers and sellers look to deal mechanisms to bridge those valuation gaps. One such mechanism is the post-closing earnout. 

This presentation will focus on the situations when an earnout can be useful in M&A transactions, the nature and details around customary metrics, and how to craft effective earnout provisions. The presentation will also address earnouts from a litigation perspective, including how buyers and sellers can reduce the chance of a post-closing earnout-related dispute.
