M&A Insurance - Whose risk is it anyway?


Ole Aabø-Evensen and Harald Blaauw of Aabø-Evensen & Co in Oslo look at the issues surrounding M&A Insurance.

During the last year and a half, we have witnessed a significant uptick in usage of M&A insurance (i.e. commercial insurance of SPA warranties and indemnities) in Norwegian M&A transactions – rising steadily, from a sequential perspective, from virtual nonexistence in 2012 (when only four policies were taken out) to a progressive policy count of 33 in 2014.
