How do I cancel an APA?

How to cancel an APA

Last updated: November 22nd, 2023

Please read before canceling your APA

We cannot speak on behalf of an attorney. If you have any questions about canceling an APA, please consult your attorney for more information.

We recommend doing the following before relisting your startup on the marketplace:

  • Please ask the buyer to confirm in writing that they want to terminate the transaction (if they have not done so already).
  • Ensure you're up-to-date on your LOI obligations and aren't bound by a no-shop provision.
  • Please review your APA to determine whether you can terminate the agreement yourself or if you need the buyer's consent. If you have any questions about this, please contact your attorney.
  • Please keep a record of your Escrow.com transaction cancellation. Acquire.com has no part of any transaction or release of funds, so if you have questions about escrow, please direct them to Escrow.com.
