Time is money, and money is something more than time...

Exclusivity agreement

This type of agreement usually includes bank parameters of potential investment (a size of investment, the expected capital participation, basic rights and duties of the sides). The agreement guarantees the company and its owners that in case the results of due diligence analysis do not radically diverge from the adopted assumptions, the potential investor will subsidize the undertaking in an appointed time. This agreement also protects the investor from current owners' withdrawal from the transaction, e.g. at the stage of incurring by the investor the costs of due diligence analysis.
