There is notoriously little publicly available information about warranty breaches in an M&A context. AIG has produced a claims report that shines a light on what can go wrong after a deal completes and the value M&A insurance can provide.
The report explores:
- What are the most common forms of breaches reported?
- How long after a deal completes do difficulties usually arise?
- Do a significant number of transactions encounter warranty breaches after the deal has closed?
- Does the probability of a claim being filed vary by the size of the deal covered?
