Prevent Exposure with Disclosure: Preparing Schedules to Acquisition Agreements

February 20, 2024 (2 min read)

Disclosure schedules are a vital component of the acquisition agreement documenting the purchase and sale of a company. They play a pivotal role in the due diligence process and serve as a mechanism facilitating the allocation of risk between the parties. Considered part of, and incorporated by reference into, the acquisition agreement, disclosure schedules work in tandem with the representations and warranties, uncovering details and technicalities not otherwise readily apparent or available. This important information could reveal circumstances that negatively impact a company's future operations, prospects, and/or valuation. Start off on the right foot with this practice note discussing key points to consider when reviewing or preparing disclosure schedules.
