Mergers and Acquisitions Insurance

What Is Intellectual Property Insurance?

The three key areas for consideration if your company is thinking about a merger or acquisition in our opinion would be based on the...

  1. Purchaser
  2. Seller
  3. The joint parties merging

Mergers and acquisitions deals are successful when both buyers and sellers or companies merging, come out of the finance negotiations having taken into account the price paid, value to shareholders, benefits and potential risks.

Increased shareholder litigation is a growing fact of life for UK companies, particularly those with USA exposures. With this increase in litigation comes a growing awareness of the responsibilities incumbent on directors and officers of companies.

This is especially true when the company makes a public offer of its securities. Signatories of a public prospectus have a personal responsibility for its contents and could therefore be found personally liable for the losses of securities holders arising from inaccuracies or misrepresentations within it.

This is just part of what the policy provides:

  • Cover for both US and non-US exposures, including SEC registered listings on all US or other world stock exchanges. Cover can also be obtained for securities being placed privately in the USA to Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIB's) under the Rule 144a exemption.
  • Insured includes the company and its directors, officers and employees for securities claims brought against them in connection with the offering.
  • At the request of the company, cover may be extended to insure the issuing underwriters.
  • Cover includes liability relating to the prospectus/listing particulars as well as negotiations, discussions and decisions in connection with the offering prior to their filing or issue.
