The NDA covers sensitive business information, financial details, operational processes, and other proprietary data. Violation of this agreement by the Prospective Buyer may lead to financial penalties, suspension or termination from the Dealwise platform, and potential legal action. This clause ensures the protection of proprietary interests and the integrity of confidential information exchanged during potential transactions.

  1. Dealwise’s Role

Dealwise allows third-party Prospective Sellers to list and sell their assets using the Dealwise Services. Dealwise does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, offer or deliver listings or the assets contained therein. While Dealwise helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the Website, Dealwise is not a Prospective Buyer or Prospective Seller in any transaction involving the Prospective Seller’s assets or any other transaction among users of the Services. 

Dealwise provides an avenue for Prospective Sellers and Prospective Buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. Accordingly, the contract agreed to by the Prospective Sellers and Prospective Buyers regarding the Prospective Seller’s assets is solely between the Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller. Dealwise is not a party to this contract and does not assume any responsibility arising out of or in connection with the contract and/or the transaction.  Unless otherwise stated in writing to the parties, Dealwise does not act as an agent for the Prospective Buyer or Prospective Seller. The Prospective Seller is solely responsible for the sale of their assets and the Prospective Buyer is solely responsible for the purchase of the assets. 

By using the Services, Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller acknowledge that in the event of a dispute between a Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller, Dealwise is not a party to any transaction among the parties and therefore will not participate in any such dispute, except as follows.  Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller acknowledge and agree that Dealwise may, upon receiving notice of a dispute from either party, and only prior to the shipping and/or delivery of the assets or under any circumstance where the following is not possible, choose in its sole and absolute discretion to cancel the transaction. In such an event Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller acknowledge and agree that neither party shall have any cause of action against Dealwise and in the event either party should pursue litigation against Dealwise the non-litigating party shall hold Dealwise harmless.

Dealwise is not responsible for:

(a) the existence, quality, suitability of legality of a listed asset;
(b) the truth, accuracy or completeness of the information contained in a listing;
(c) the future performance of a listed asset;
(d) the performance or conduct of a Prospective Buyer or Prospective Seller or third-party on the Website; and/or
(e) the quality, suitability or ability of a third party which provides goods or services to Dealwise or to a Prospective Buyer or Prospective Seller.

Your decision to purchase a listed asset shall be based solely on your own investigation and that of your legal, tax and other advisors. You accept sole responsibility for examining and investigating an asset and all information in a listing. This includes, but is not limited to, associated liabilities, financial statements, tax returns and any other facts or information which may impact your decision to purchase that listed asset and the price you are willing to pay. You understand that Dealwise may display only a summary description of a listed asset.

Dealwise recommends all parties seek their own independent legal advice in relation to the documents.


  1. Listing Rules

For the avoidance of doubt, Dealwise does not promote, encourage or facilitate the sale of securities using Dealwise Services.

When you create a listing, you will be asked to provide complete and accurate information about your asset, potentially including, but not limited to a business description and current and historical financial data. You are responsible for your listing and keeping your listing information up to date at all times. You will also be asked to set an asking price for your asset/s, either a set price in the case of a fixed-price listing or a starting price, reserve price, and optional buy it now price, in the case of an auction-format listing. Please be aware that Dealwise may, in its sole discretion, prevent you from listing your asset for sale, or suspend an existing listing, if it considers that a price set is unreasonable or not aligned with market value.

You warrant and represent to Dealwise and to each Prospective Buyer that:

(a) you own the asset or are entitled to sell the asset;
(b) you are the owner of all intellectual property rights, including but not limited to copyright, patent, trademark, designs whether registered or not and throughout the world and all other rights, title and interest in the asset,
(c) the asset is transferable to a Prospective Buyer; and
(d) any and all agreements with third parties are transferable to the Prospective Buyer.

You must not create a listing for an asset which is:

(a) is obscene, vulgar and/or deemed by Dealwise to be offensive;
(b) contains material which infringes the rights of a third party or which assists others to infringe the rights of a third party;
(c) is engaged in activities which contravenes law of any territory; or
(d) Dealwise deems inappropriate or in breach of these Terms.


  1. Marketplace Circumvention 

You must conduct the initial contact with a Prospective Buyer or a Prospective Seller you learn about through the Dealwise Services through the Website.You must not circumvent Dealwise or attempt to circumvent Dealwise. The obligation to pay the success fee is triggered upon any sale wherein the Prospective Seller becomes aware of a potential Prospective Buyer or engages in any form of contact with such a Prospective Buyer through the Website or Dealwise Services. An exception may be made in cases where a Prospective Buyer, who has had prior communications with the Prospective Seller outside the ambit of the Website, proactively furnishes verifiable evidence of such prior interactions on the topic of a merger, acquisition, buyout, or investment within the prior ninety (90) calendar days from the date of first interaction between the Prospective Buyer and Prospective Seller via the Website or Dealwise Services.


  1. Our Fees

In the event of a successful sale facilitated through the Website, involving the sale of an asset listed on the Website, the Prospective Buyer agrees to remit to Dealwise a success fee. This fee shall be equivalent to one percent (1%) of the total transaction value, where the total transaction value shall be construed to encompass the aggregate of all consideration involved in the transaction, inclusive of, but not limited to, the final sale price, any applicable taxes, contingencies, earn-outs.

The success fee stipulated herein is mandatory, irrevocable, and non-refundable under any circumstances. Dealwise expressly reserves the unilateral right to modify the rate of the success fee at its discretion. In the event of such modification, Dealwise undertakes to provide timely notification to the Prospective Buyer prior to the implementation of the new rate.

Furthermore, in circumstances where an invoice pertaining to the success fee remains unsettled, Dealwise retains the right to charge the outstanding amount to the Prospective Buyer's credit card on file. Prior to executing such a charge, Dealwise will endeavor to notify the Prospective Buyer and provide a detailed invoice of the due amount. In the event that the outstanding balance is not cleared post the due date, Dealwise reserves the right to initiate the charge on the Prospective Buyer’s credit card without further notice. It is incumbent upon the Prospective Buyer to ensure the accuracy and currency of their credit card information on file to preclude any interruptions in service or accrual of additional fees.

  1. Restrictions on Platform Use and Prohibition of Finder's Fees
