A Materiality Scrape Is An Important Contract Provision
A materiality scrape is a contract term that generally protects the buyer in a merger or acquisition. During a transaction, a seller will include a series of representations and warranties about the materiality of the business. This serves to outline the current condition of the business as well as informing the buyer of any potential risks. A materiality scrape allows the buyer to later ignore these representations and warranties for any post-transaction indemnification due to losses at their expense.
A materiality scrape is not compulsory to every acquisition agreement, and they are significantly stilted in the buyer’s favor. Still, these provisions are popular, and when negotiating them the aid of legal counsel can be beneficial.
