Finder Fee Agreement Private Equity
After a jury trial, the jury returned a verdict in favour of NTV, which awarded it damages for consulting costs, and to pay three times as much damages under G.L.c 93A.

The «value» of the acquisition is usually the consideration for the seller at the time of the subscription – cash, notes, debt management, etc. – as well as employment/advice agreements, leases and other payments above fair value.

If such a person or entity is not registered, it cannot enforce a contract in violation of securities law.
In deciding whether NTV`s agreement with Lightship should be implemented, the SJC considered whether the agreement on its face had triggered an obligation for NTV to register as a broker-dealer. To do so, the CJS used a two-part analysis and determined: «1) whether the instrument being traded is a «guarantee» and, if so, (2) whether the conduct required by the contract amounts to «transactions.» The SJC found that the language of NTV`s agreement with Lightship was broad and indeterminate as to the specific form of the transaction that such a capital raising would take, and found that «NTV`s contract did not require securities transactions.» I am also in favour of me not being a licensed broker or broker or investment advisor and that this agreement is not intended for the purchase, sale or trading of securities, nor to provide advice or advice on these activities. lam is not allowed to collect a research fee until a stock market investor has actually made an investment with you or your company. 5.
