What Happens After the Deal Closes?

Representations and Warranties Insurance Global Claims Study

Mergers and Acquisitions 2016 Claims Report

Global mergers and acquisitions activity is on the rise and is expected to continue to grow in 2016. This increased activity often translates into heightened competition for attractive assets. As the frenzy of deal-making increases, Representations and Warranties Insurance (also known as Warranty and Indemnity Insurance) will continue to provide sophisticated buyers and sellers with a competitive tool that reduces risk and assists them in reaching their transaction goals faster – and with far fewer headaches.

What Happens After the Deal Closes, AIG’s recently released global representations and warranties claims study, provides interesting insights to buyers, sellers, and M&A advisors. Based on the review of AIG claims data between 2011 and 2014, What Happens After the Deal Closes explores the following:

  • What are the most common forms of breaches reported?
  • Do buyers or sellers face the most claims?
  • How long after a deal closes will difficulties arise?
  • Do a significant number of transactions run into problems after the deal has closed?
  • Does the probability of a claim being filed vary by the size of the deal covered?

AIG has been assisting buyers and sellers close over 2,000 deals globally since the late 1990s. The number of deals and the breadth of the portfolio, spanning across geographies, industries, and sectors, uniquely places AIG to share insights into mergers and acquisitions based on observations about the claims made on those policies.
