1 PLC Intellectual Property & Technology An intellectual property (IP) and information technology (IT) due diligence request list for use in connection with an M&A transaction. This request list is designed for IP specialists and is specific to IP and IT-related issues. This Standard Document has integrated notes with important explanations and drafting tips. This is just one example of the many online resources Practical Law Company offers. To access this resource and others, visit practicallaw.com. DRAFTING NOTE General Most due diligence investigations begin with the preparation of a due diligence request list that covers the entire scope of the anticipated transaction. Companies involved in corporate transactions may consult intellectual property (IP) specialists who focus on the IP and information technology (IT) issues relating to the transaction. This request list is specifically drafted to help specialists representing the buyer gather diligence about IP and IT issues that may arise in asset acquisitions, stock acquisitions and mergers. It may be modified and incorporated into a general due diligence request list or used as a stand-alone document. For examples of general due diligence request lists, see PLC Corporate & Securities, Standard Documents, Due Diligence Request List: Public Mergers & Acquisitions (http://us.practicallaw.com/ ) and Due Diligence Request List: Private Mergers & Acquisitions (http://us.practicallaw.com/ ). IP specialists should review any publicly available information on the target company or seller and tailor the requests to the extent possible before submitting the diligence request. The request list should be prepared and distributed to the target company or seller as early as possible in the timeline of the anticipated transaction. For a Checklist of common IP due diligence issues, see IP Due Diligence Issues in M&A Transactions Checklist (http://us.practicallaw.com/ ). For an overview of IP issues in M&A transactions, see Practice Notes, Intellectual Property: Stock Purchases and Mergers and Intellectual Property: Asset Purchases (http://us.practicallaw.com/ ). Tailoring Diligence Requests This due diligence request list is drafted to provide broad coverage of IP- and IT-related requests and should be customized in connection with a specific transaction.

2 Regardless of any modifications, a buyer s requests should seek information sufficient to: Identify any impediments to the transaction. Identify significant liabilities. Understand impediments to continued business operations or planned changes following the closing. Some or all of the optional language presented in bracketed text can be used to: Tailor the requests to be more specific or to address particular concerns relating to the transaction. Limit the scope of the request to material items. Notify or remind the target company or seller of specific documents that may satisfy a particular, broader request. Common issues to consider include: The deal structure. For example, in a stock acquisition, the target company typically remains the same and the buyer generally steps into the seller s shoes, assuming responsibility for all of its contractual obligations and liabilities. In this case, the due diligence requests are typically broad in scope. In an asset acquisition, the buyer generally does not assume all of the seller s liabilities and the due diligence requests may focus on information relating to the specific assets being purchased. If the transaction is a carve-out transaction (the sale of a subsidiary, division or other part of a larger business enterprise), the buyer will want to ensure that the treatment of shared IP and IT assets is addressed (see optional language in Section 1(h) and Section 2(b)). The scope of the IP and IT due diligence review. For example, the diligence requests should be modified to reflect: the materiality threshold (meaning the buyer or corporate due diligence team do not want to know about liabilities unless they exceed this threshold amount); specific concerns or areas of focus relating to the particular transaction or target company; and time or budgeting restrictions. The target company s or seller s business. The diligence requests should be customized based on: the nature of the business; the industry in which it operates; and whether it is a private or public company. The target company s or seller s reliance on IP and IT. For example, the focus of the diligence requests may vary if the target company or seller: owns a certain key IP asset (such as an established brand) or a significant number of IP registrations (such as a patent or copyright portfolio); customarily licenses IP (such as software) in connection with its business; or operates in an industry where IP-related disputes are common. Regulated industries. Transactions involving a target company or seller in a regulated industry, such as pharmaceuticals, raise unique issues and often require additional input from regulatory specialists and a separate due diligence review. 2

3 Trade secrets. When requesting and responding to a request for trade secret information, the parties should consider whether disclosure is required and ensure confidentiality is maintained if trade secrets are identified in detail. Antitrust. The disclosure of information in certain documents by the target company or seller to the buyer may raise antitrust considerations, in particular if the buyer is a direct competitor and the information involves pricing or financial information. In some cases it may be appropriate for disclosure and access to be limited to the buyer s counsel or specific buyer personnel. Antitrust specialists should be consulted if the transaction raises these issues. In addition, IP and IT diligence requests may overlap with general corporate diligence requests, in particular relating to the target company s or seller s material agreements. Although attorneys in these two areas of law may review some of the same diligence materials, they should coordinate to ensure that the diligence requests are not duplicative. It is also typical for IP specialists to coordinate requests with the buyer s internal IP and IT teams, as well as external consultants. This can be particularly important where the buyer wants the diligence investigation to focus on its ability to use certain key IP assets after the transaction or has concerns regarding the target company s or seller s IT platform and its integration with the buyer s own systems. Specifying Materiality It is sometimes useful to qualify certain IP or IT requests by materiality. For example, requesting all IP-related agreements may be onerous and time-consuming for both the buyer and the target company or seller. The request list can provide a definition of materiality upfront or indicate individual thresholds relevant to particular items. The determination of what constitutes materiality depends on the size of the target company or seller, the nature of the business and custom in the industry. It can be defined with a dollar amount (for example, $250,000) or as a percentage of revenues or assets. IP specialists should make these determinations with the members of the corporate due diligence team and the buyer. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DUE DILIGENCE REQUEST LIST In connection with the potential acquisition of [assets from] [NAME OF TARGET] (together with all of its subsidiaries and any predecessors, collectively, the Company ), please provide us with the following materials. If certain materials have already been provided or are unavailable or inapplicable, please indicate this in your response. Please note that because we are not yet familiar with the business and operations of the Company, the requests below are specifically broad in nature and may include items that are not applicable to the Company. As our diligence proceeds and we learn more about the Company, we may submit supplemental due diligence requests as necessary. Unless otherwise indicated, documents should be made available for all periods subsequent to [DATE] and should include all amendments, supplements and other ancillary documents. [Unless otherwise indicated, the word material means an item involving payments (to or from the Company) in excess of $[DOLLAR AMOUNT].] Please do not hesitate to contact us at [CONTACT INFORMATION] with any questions or concerns regarding this request. 3

4 DRAFTING NOTE Instructions The defined term Company or individual diligence requests should be drafted to capture all entities that may have relevant documents. For example, if the target company s or seller s IP is owned by the parent company or an affiliate company, the diligence requests should cover relevant agreements (including licenses), even if those agreements were entered into by a different corporate entity. The introductory language should be modified with the bracketed language if the requests are being submitted as part of an asset acquisition. In addition, the introductory language makes clear that the diligence requests cover a specific period. IP specialists should modify individual diligence requests if documents outside that period are necessary or relevant to the diligence review. 1. Intellectual Property.
