Controlled Auctions Toolkit

Despite the uncertainty and volatility continuing to affect both the global economy and North American capital markets, controlled auction transactions in the Canadian marketplace remain remarkably active, especially in the mid-market. Members of our M&A/Private Equity and Venture Capital groups have prepared this Controlled Auctions Toolkit to provide sellers with some key Canadian legal considerations before they venture into these tempting but often turbulent waters.

The Toolkit summarizes the key steps in a controlled auction, identifies relevant considerations when drafting a "seller-friendly" purchase agreement and provides users with some helpful sample materials, such as an exclusivity agreement, confidentiality agreement and process letters.
