ompanies considering a merger or acquisition look carefully at liabilities which could effect the value of a target business, but they rarely consider the value of existing insurance coverage for limiting those exposures. Likewise, companies often fail to anticipate problems that can arise after the sale or acquisition of a business when surviving entities share insurance assets.

Anderson Kill Insurance Services can add significant value to a merger or acquisition by:

  • analyzing the target company’s coverage, particularly for long-tail liability exposures

  • determining likely insurance recoveries for known and anticipated liabilities

  • identifying potential future problems involving coverage sharing, retrospective premium plans and captives

  • structuring the transaction to avoid future insurance related problems
