Placing The Agreement

As noted above, it has become apparent over the years that many terms of an investment agreement are accepted by the parties as “standard” terms and are not thoroughly considered. Recently, we have seen more and more concerns on the part of customers about such a clause, which is of a similar form to that of: as at the time of this agreement, the company has divided [an authorized equity capital of [inclusion amount] into [insumeration] usually at first glance, the intention is clear – the full guarantees contained in the investment agreement that are given to the nomad and broker by the company (and during an IPO, its directors) are also considered to be given to the places under the placement, subject to a claim of place at the discretion of the broker. As a result, many terms in an investment agreement are simply accepted by the parties as “standard” and rarely discussed in detail. Recently, when we have worked for a number of nomads and brokers, we have seen a growing concern about such a clause, Kieran Stone, partner of the company, describes a similar clause below and examines in detail the pros and cons of this clause for brokers and companies. If such a provision is adopted, the company should consider further limiting its liability to the organizations under the guarantees, as it is not necessarily concluded that all the restrictions accepted by the broker in the investment agreement would also apply to the premises. Similarly, when adopting such an agreement, the broker should consider limiting his liability as an agent to the premises, before any application. Broker – In making the investment on behalf of the company, the broker may have informed the Placeses (or asked to ensure) that they will have the benefit of guarantees by offering an additional level of comfort to the seats, that the company (and the directors) are ready to pass on these confirmations directly to investors. Or the broker just wants to “take care” of his investors. Our experience is that it is relatively unusual for investors to specifically request it and rarely be a deal breaker for an investor who wishes to participate in a fundraiser. As a general rule, an investment letter will make it clear that the investor relies only on public information and/or specific documents such as a presentation. Moreover, to the extent that this provision is included, copies of the corresponding guarantees should be included in the investment documents, so that the premises are clearly attentive to the conditions under which they acquire shares and are therefore aware of the extent of their protection – an approach against which most companies expected a great shrinkage. Memery Crystal currently believes that this clause should not be included “by default” unless it is expressly requested by a broker willing to assume the burden and then ensure that the letter reflects this provision and that all parties have approved it and understand its effects. As AIM celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, it is clear that the regulated and procedural nature of many important agreements that document the licensing process has a number of advantages, with negotiations often limited to a handful of specific concepts that, in and of themselves, are largely related to market practice.

For the local bone to ask, what should be the main way to claim compensation for each claim? “Go it alone” and file an unauthorized claim for misrepresentation or participate in a more complete action on the basis of a warranty violation against the company, although a marshalled and controlled by the broker.
