The inclusion of representations and guarantees in a contract helps to spread the risk between the two signatories. Representations and guarantees also become the basis for security and protection for termination or modification of the contract. If one of the representations made is imprecise, the guarantee contained identifies the action that the signatory can take against the other. In most cases, if a representation is false, the guarantee of the other person involved in the contract allows the transaction to be terminated or refused. A guarantee is a promise that a factual condition or assertion is true and is generally supported by a tacit promise of compensation if the condition or assertion is false. A guarantee may apply now and in the future. A guarantee is a contractual declaration that a condition applies and/or applies if it is made and/or for a specified period, often for the duration of the contract. Again, the term “guarantee” is not defined in the ICA. Intellectual property infringement is a common example of the guarantee granted by the parties in commercial contracts. A service provider ensures that the delivery goods/work products provided do not infringe the intellectual property rights of third parties.

Insurance, guarantee and compensation clauses are widely used clauses in bargaining contracts, particularly in the case of M-A transactions. The interests of the contracting parties generally do not comply with the treaty`s representation and guarantee clause, which generally includes a substantial part of the agreement. With regard to transactions in the market, the seller wants to strengthen the scope of insurance and guarantees and reduce the risk of injury and injury, but the buyer wants the buyer to position himself as widely as possible in order to isolate himself from the risks. Representations differ from case to case, based on information such as the size and nature of the target company, the interests acquired, the type of investors and the type of investors I, the parties involved. Representations and guarantees are generally supported by compensation from the party providing them. Therefore, the party may be held responsible for a claim of compensation from the other party in the event of a violation of these insurances and guarantees.
