When parties are in the financial services sector, they must also examine the scope of the ASD and ascertain whether it is an “essential outsourcing” or whether it is an “important” or “critical” function for regulatory purposes. If access is available, regulations must comply with SysC rules to comply. When the complexity of an ASD moves towards the above example, the lawyer for the M-A or business lead often turns to the commercial transaction and/or equivalent between commercial and/or supply chains to assist in the structuring and negotiation of the TSA. Negotiating the structure of an ASD may include a list of issues, including separate provisions or documents that address liability for ad hoc segregation/separation activities, current services and assets, how established services are handled by third parties during the transition period, business continuability requirements, audit fees, insurance requirements, data protection obligations and the distribution of liability. What corrective measures apply to the buyer if the seller is not acting appropriately under the TSA? A seller may have little incentive to work in accordance with the service levels set out in the TSA and its supporting documents after the closure, unless there is explicitly liquidated damage that can be recovered by the buyer – standard compensation cannot provide adequate motivation.
In order to ensure the greatest possible applicability, you should consider recouping a trust fund due to poor performance under the TSA (although this may be difficult to negotiate in the major M-A transaction).
