The 2020 update to our Buy-Side Representations and Warranties Insurance (RWI) Deal Terms Study will be released soon. This update analyzes 681 private-target acquisitions ($132.6 billion) that closed between January 1, 2018 and June 30, 2020 in which SRS Acquiom provided professional and financial services. Data compares deals with RWI to deals without RWI and looks at key changes or new trends in the use of transaction insurance. M&A deal terms, including indemnification provisions, have been and may continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to collect deal data and market information regarding M&A and the use of RWI to analyze and identify trends that may emerge.

This update is powered by SRS Acquiom MarketStandard®, an interactive tool with data from more than 2,500 private-target M&A deals. You may register for MarketStandard to apply filters to review data from transactions that look most like the one you are negotiating.
