"There is an interplay between company valuation and the company sale contract, as both distribute opportunities and risks between the parties. Often, errors in the contract and/or the company evaluation occur, if they do not mirror each other. Therefore a good understanding of financial models, communicated through the book and tested in the exam, is fundamental for corporate lawyers responsible for company acquisitions, especially for option transactions. In modern understanding, many contracts result in options and have to be evaluated as such."
