How To Use This Resource


This guide will be most helpful when used as a reference source that is read side-by-side with a purchase agreement to help make sense of the Agreement’s terms. Each section can be read by itself, without reference to the other sections, and in any order. With that said, the main body of the guide is more easily understood if the following explanatory paragraphs (“Classifying the Deal Terms,” “Section Headings,” “Assumptions,” “Defined Terms,” and “Disclaimer”) are read prior to reading the sections that correspond to terms in the Agreement.
