An acquirer of technology assets in an earn-out transaction may have a duty to make reasonable efforts to promote the technology – 1st Circuit

A federal appeals court has ruled that, at least under Massachusetts law, a company that acquired another company’s technology assets, for cash plus an earn-out, was obligated to use reasonable efforts to promote the tech­nology, so that the seller would have a shot at the earn-out payments. See this Law.com article about the First Circuit’s Sonora Scanners case, re­vers­ing and remanding a summary judgment in favor of the acquiring company (discussed on another point in this posting).
