  • Holdback Escrows
    To mitigate transaction risk, Oars Investment offers Holdback accounts, enabling clients to place a portion of the purchase price in escrow until the terms of an agreement are satisfied. Holdbacks offer a way for the buyer to seek claims for false representations or breaches of warranty. Oars Investment will manage all claims on the account in accordance with the agreement terms.
  • Good Faith Deposits
    Oars Investment offers Good Faith Deposits, which hold a portion of the transaction purchase price in escrow to help buyers and sellers facilitate bidding and comply with regulations. Oars Investment can also distribute termination fees from the escrow funds if the transaction is cancelled.
  • Takeover Codes for Global M&A
    Regulations in certain jurisdictions – such as the Takeover Codes of Hong Kong and the United Kingdom – require confirmation from the advisor in an M&A deal that resources are available to move the transaction forward. Oars Investment provides the financial advisor the assurance that funds will be available and segregated throughout the duration of the offer.
  • Closing Agent/Paying Agent
    Oars Investment offers buyers escrow accounts for deposit of the full transaction purchase price to centralize funding sources and hold liquid funds before closing. We also provide a variety of services to facilitate the transaction:
    Closing Agent escrows – These escrows facilitate the exchange of the company stock from the seller for cash payments from the buyer.
    Paying Agent services – Oars Investment disburses funds to the selling shareholders directly from an escrow account. We can efficiently manage all aspects of the process, from inspecting presentations and share certificates, to resolving issues and promptly paying shareholders.
