Long Form Warranties

Updated for 2018

These long form warranties can be used to supplement the warranties appearing in a share purchase agreement, business purchase agreement or share subscription agreement.

The warranties in each of the above-mentioned agreements may need to be tailored to reflect the nature of the target company other target business being acquired in each case. The warranties in these long form set of warranties can be supplemented into these agreements as necessary to help strengthen the warranty protection given to the buyer/subscriber.

Further details are set out below.

See below for a full product description

Where a person acquires shares in a company, subscribes for shares in a company or acquires an existing business, he will receive certain warranties in relation to the target company/business. Depending on the nature of the company or business in question, you may want specific warranties to cover particular aspects of the business.

For example, if you are acquiring a software development company, you will want warranties that are specially tailored to an IT company. Such warranties would of course be wholly different to those you would expect to receive in connection with the acquisition of a landscaping business. As such, it therefore becomes necessary in every case to tailor the warranties you are receiving to the target business/company in question.

Attached is a broad set of general warranties that cover a vast amount of areas (see below). You will need to review these warranties carefully, select those that will be most relevant to the target business/company you are acquiring (including where you are only acquiring a specific number of shares in that company) and add them to the warranties schedule of your share purchase agreement, business purchase agreement or share subscription agreement, as the case may be.

Make sure to take sufficient time to ensure that the warranties are tailored correctly to meet your needs!
