HomeM&A warranty and indemnity insurance
SIACI SAINT HONORE and the Financial Risks Division work with you and provide real added value at each step of the insurance implementation process and during the management of any claims.
Warranty and indemnity insurance is designed to cover the financial consequences of claims arising from inaccurate statements and warranties from the vendor. This risk outsourcing solution helps facilitate the discussions between the parties, as the negotiation of warranties and indemnities can often prove to be a sensitive matter.  

Our clients

We arrange transfer solutions for:

  • Companies involved in financial transactions concerning the sale or acquisition of companies,
  • Companies operating in the financial sector: banks, private equity firms, asset managers, etc.

How we support you

We can provide you with solutions tailored specifically to your transactions:

Transaction insurance, and in particular warranty and indemnity insurance, covering the sale or acquisition of company shares or assets. We can also help you insure any specifically identified tax-related risks or actual or potential litigation that may jeopardize the completion of the transaction.

Our solutions

Designing the coverage framework

We work with you before the start of the operation to give you our opinion on the insurability of the coverage you require, the indemnity mechanism and the various interconnections between the share purchase agreement (or SPA) and the insurance.
 

Obtaining an indicative quote

We seek expressions of interest from insurers in France and in the international markets, particularly in London, validate the coverage plan and obtain non-binding quotes (premium, deductible, coverage upgrades, etc.).



 

Analyzing the insurer's proposal

We act as an interface between the parties, explaining their respective positions and taking part in the negotiation of the contractual coverage documents.


 

Finalizing the insurance policy

We verify and, if necessary, negotiate the key points of the insurance policy to ensure a good match between the various contractual documents of the transaction. If necessary, we may call on additional capacity.


 

Managing claims

 When faced with complex claims, we act as an interface between you and the insurer to make it easier for each party's position to be understood.
