Exclusivity Agreement Transaction

An exclusivity agreement prevents a seller from negotiating a sale with other buyers for an agreed period of time. The exclusivity agreement puts a buyer in a better position because he has no competition during the exclusivity period. In addition, the buyer can have confidence in the fact that the seller is serious about the negotiations on the sale. When the buyer withdraws from the sale, an exclusivity agreement has taken the seller some time to negotiate other offers. An exclusive agreement is also called “no shop.” Negotiating an exclusive agreement can be complicated. However, if you have a basic knowledge of the relevant considerations, you can avoid the pitfalls and communicate more effectively with your lawyer. Below is a table in which the buyer`s and seller`s negotiating positions are grouped into a standard exclusivity agreement for certain important provisions. “A carefully crafted exclusivity provision – in the context of an offer to buy, an agenda or a letter of intent – is the key to the negotiation process. It gives the parties time and space to develop the details of a transaction and even to decide whether a transaction can take place without any of the parties risking terrible consequences. Even if all goes well, buyers and sellers may need more time to complete the transaction. In this case, the agreement should allow the exclusivity period to be extended if necessary. In general, the transaction does not proceed in the same way as buying a house or a car. There are formalities, due diligence and other tasks that cannot be completed overnight. This means that exclusivity delays provide benefits to both parties to the transaction.
