Confidentiality Agreement
The Transworld Confidentiality Agreement (TWCA) identifies the responsibilities and obligations of Potential Buyers as it pertains to any information disclosed about a business. It outlines a Buyer’s expected conduct when visiting or inquiring about businesses they have expressed an interest in Buying. The TWCA requires the Buyers / Potential Buyers signature. If you have questions, please ask your Broker for guidance.Selling business owners and Business Brokers feel strongly about assuring complete confidentiality. They should, maintaining confidentiality can be key to preserving market value. It’s critical for a variety of reasons; for example, what if a key employee came to know about ownership changes, began looking around and left? Competitors armed with this knowledge have been known to use it as a negative sales tool. It can even affect vendor relationships.Depending upon the competitive environment, cost and complexity of a business, some Seller’s require that Potential Buyer’s provide financial disclosures and an experience summary prior to any significant disclosures about their business. Protecting confidentiality is essential to preserving market value. At Transworld, we are serious about protecting the Seller’s Confidentiality. We will require your signature and appropriate identification prior to disclosing any detailed business information.
