In an article discussing earn-out provisions in M&A transactions, The Practical Law Journal highlighted client SunOpta Inc.'s November 2010 acquisition of Minnesota-based Dahlgren & Company, Inc. ("Dahlgren"). Earn-out mechanisms can help bridge the gap between buyer and seller valuations, by calculating a portion of the purchase price through reference to the performance of the target company over a period of time after deal closing.

The Dahlgren acquisition involved cash consideration of $44 million, subject to normal post-closing adjustments, plus an EBITDA earn-out based on pre-determined targets until December 29, 2012. The acquisition established SunOpta as one the largest confection sunflower businesses in the world. A Stoel Rives team led by Joe Thompson represented SunOpta in the transaction.
