European M&A: Transatlantic perspectives on deal certainty

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on targets resulted in counterparties analysing whether they were still obliged to complete transactions that had signed or able to renegotiate price.

As financial sponsors and strategic acquirors in Europe considered their options, certain buyers in the U.S. decided to fast-track their thinking and moved to walk away.

Here we analyse conceptual differences between European and U.S. market practice surrounding “deal certainty” and what deal terms may make it easier for counterparties to renegotiate or terminate transactions using U.S. style deal technology as compared to that used in the European market.
