Working Capital Adjustment Share Purchase Agreement
This request concerned the accuracy of the buyer`s choice of this procedure. The seller insisted that his dispute with the buyer under the agreement was essentially a dispute over whether he had breached representation (i.e., the psa submission that his 2010-2013 annual accounts were GAAP compliant). Therefore, the seller believes that the dispute should be resolved in accordance with the provisions of the compensation agreement, which is considered: As stated above, it is important not to establish working capital determination in isolation.

The buyer paid $US 50,000 to settle the dispute and demanded that amount below the compensation. However, the seller had put a reserve of US$50,000 on the balance sheet of the dispute and therefore defended the claim on the grounds that the amount was already covered. While admitting that the seller`s approach made sense, the Tribunal found that the documents supported double collection, since the compensation was intended to cover all damages and not just for an unreserved amount. While the formula can simply be characterized as “short-term assets minus short-term liabilities,” it can be difficult to account for the exact intentions of the parties with an effective provision of working capital. Conclusion The net amount of the interest rate offers benefits for both the buyer and the seller of an AM.

In our experience, parties to labour capital disputes often take very one-sided approaches, so that the determination of an expert may ultimately be fairer than the choice of an arbitrator, which is limited to a selection “either or” between two strongly opposed positions.

Another consideration could be the location of these dispute resolution discussions. The indication of a particular office of the independent external expert can help avoid long travel periods and ensure that your dispute is resolved by those who are familiar with the practices of your jurisdiction or industry.
