The Offer to Purchase should include the value of and the valuation basis of the assets included. In a share sale, assets and liabilities included will typically be valued at balance sheet or book value, while in an asset sale, maybe at appraised value, or fair market value, or simply at agreed value.

The ‘subject to diligence’ clauses should contain an expiration date, after which, if not first satisfied and removed by the beneficial party, the offer or acceptance may be withdrawn by the other party without penalty.
