Key Results Trust agreements are more common when the risk of transaction is high, i.e. for: – autonomous private objectives, objectives with dominant shareholders, higher objectives (compared to the purchaser). The use of fiduciary contracts reduces the closing time from 35.5 to 51.0%. Fiduciary agreements are more common when the risk of information asymmetry is high, i.e.: objectives for interprofessional acquisitions, high-limit targets, targets in high-volatility income sectors or low coverage of analysts, objectives that are financially limited. Trust contracts are more common when other risks may exist, i.e., if reverse insurance is not included in the form of liability caps (or caps). Shares issued as employee benefits may be limited to the employee for a certain period of time. During such a period, employees cannot trade the stock on the market, so the shares are in trust. Due to several cases of fraud in the past, users should provide appropriate due diligence services to protect themselves from reprehensible behavior. Therefore, trust contracts serve as a guarantee that the seller protects against common asymmetric informationAsymetric information, as the term suggests, unequal, disproportionate or indecisive information.
It is usually used in the case of a type of transaction or financial agreement in which one party has more or less detailed information than the other. problems and risks associated with acquiring bidders. The independent third party, a trust agent, is responsible for keeping records and regulating the payment of funds necessary for the transaction. The third party then hands over the retained assets to the party, who has the right to receive it as soon as all the conditions are met.

Below are listed a large number of circumstances in which Trustee can be used, while the main advantage is to reduce due diligence costs in trading businesses and manage the risks that represents asymmetry in knowledge between buyer and seller. Implications If the two bidders and sellers earn on average by using fiduciary contracts, shouldn`t all unlisted acquisitions use them? Possible reasons why these contracts are not used in all financial statements: sellers who are aware of possible false testimony in repetitions and guarantees. Disagreement between shareholders focused on the inclusion of a trust fund. Sellers in urgent need of liquidity (escrows reduce liquidity). Positive association b/n use of trust contract and acquisition bidders announce returns does not mean that all bidders must use the trust contract.
Fiduciary agreements are often the most valuable when used for the acquisition of a private business instead of acquiring a subsidiary of a larger group (the buyer claiming a right to compensation or a guarantee against the remaining group). As a result, 65% of purchases from private companies use fiduciary contracts, compared to only 32% of part-time purchases. For example, a company that buys goods internationally wants to be sure that its counterpart can deliver the goods.
