M&A Risk Review

Companies often engage in acquisitions without the realization that these transactions can create material omissions for past and future coverage. Corporate Protection Group works with your team throughout the M&A process to identify, evaluate, and mitigate buy and sell-side exposures.

Scope of Work

  • Corporate and operational review
  • Risk and exposure assessment
  • Insurance policy and coverage exclusions review
  • Prior claims and liabilities evaluation
  • Insurance strategy and tail coverage requirements

Case Study

Background: A client was evaluating the potential acquisition of a large real estate portfolio. Corporate Protection Group was engaged to complete an insurance and risk review as part of their due diligence process.

Solution: We reviewed the environmental risks, critical contracts, historical claims, and underwriting data. As part of this review, we had identified that the sellers were utilizing market value to insure the portfolio and not the replacement cost. This significant overstatement of value materially inflated the seller’s insurance costs.

Outcome: Armed with this information, we worked with our client to identify that a normalized premium under their policy would be approximately $300,000 cheaper than what was represented by the seller. Not only did our clients reap the benefits of this unexpected savings, but these reduced costs indirectly increased the overall value of the asset through increased cashflow.
