The 2021 M&A deal terms study offers an analysis of more than 1,400 private-target acquisitions ($286 billion in deal value) that closed between 2016 and 2020 where SRS Acquiom provided services. The vast majority of these M&A deals are not required to be publicly reported. Key topics in this year’s study include:

  • COVID impacts on deal terms in 2020
  • Comparisons of deals where buy-side Representations and Warranties Insurance (RWI) are included versus deals where buy-side RWI is not identified
  • New analysis on purchase price adjustments, indemnification terms, and earnouts.
