Non-Disclosure Agreement

  • Our agreements with sellers of certain businesses (the “Sellers”) require that we obtain a Non-Disclosure Agreement from you before disclosing the name and location of a Seller’s business. Your information will be kept confidential.

    In consideration of Lakes Business Group, Inc., d/b/a VR Business Brokers (“Broker”) providing the information on businesses for sale, including, but not limited to, the listing number(s) specified above, I/we understand and agree:

    1. (a) That any information provided or made available on any business is sensitive and confidential, and that its disclosure to others may be damaging to the businesses and their owners.

    (b) Not to disclose, for a period of three (3) years from the date I/we sign this Non-Disclosure Agreement, any information regarding these businesses to any other person who has not also signed this Non-Disclosure Agreement, except to secure the advice and recommendations of my business advisors (accountants, attorneys, etc.). “Information” as used in this Agreement shall include the fact that the businesses are for sale, plus any other data provided or made available to me/us by Broker or a Seller.

    (c) Not to use, for a period of three (3) years from the date I/we sign this Non-Disclosure Agreement, any information provided or made available to me/us by Broker or a Seller for any purpose other than evaluating a potential transaction with a Seller.

    (d) Not to contact the business owners or their landlords, employees, suppliers or customers except through Broker. All correspondence, inquiries, offers to purchase and negotiations relating to the purchase or lease of any business presented by Broker will be conducted exclusively through Broker. I/We understand that I/we could be personally liable for monetary damages if I/we contact a Seller directly or otherwise circumvent Broker and such contact and/or circumvention disrupts or otherwise affects a Seller’s business operations.

    (e) Not to circumvent or interfere with Broker’s contract with the Seller in any way. I/we understand that if I/we interfere with Broker’s contract right to its fee from a Seller, I/we may be personally liable to Broker for payment of the Seller’s fee. I/We understand that should I/we become a manager or otherwise connected with any of the businesses shown or offered to me/us for sale, or should I/we buy, trade, lease or exchange any of the businesses disclosed to me/us, then a fee will be due to Broker. I/we understand that if I/we make the purchase through Broker, I/we will not be liable for the fee paid by Seller to Broker.

    2. That all information regarding businesses for sale is provided by a Seller or other sources and is not verified in any way by Broker. Broker has no knowledge of the accuracy or completeness of said information and makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of such information. Understanding that, I/we shall perform my/our own due diligence and shall make an independent verification of said information prior to entering into an agreement to purchase any business. I/we agree that Broker is not responsible for the accuracy or completeness of any of the information I/we receive or fail to receive, and I/we agree to indemnify and hold Broker and its affiliates harmless from and against any and all damages, losses, actions, claims, demands, judgments, costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) of or against Broker or its affiliates resulting from or arising out of any transaction with any Seller and/or any inaccuracy or incompleteness of any information provided or made available to me/us with respect to any business I/we might purchase. In the event I/we commence any litigation against Broker and Broker is the prevailing party in such litigation, I/we agree to pay all of Broker’s expenses relating to the investigation, preparation and defense of such litigation, including attorneys’ fees. The provisions of this Section 2 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Non-Disclosure Agreement and/or any agreement between me/us and a Seller.

    3. That should I/we enter into an agreement to purchase a business, I/we will provide a financial statement and a personal and business history, and I/we authorize the Seller to obtain through standard reporting agencies financial and credit information about me/us or the companies I/we represent.

    4. That Broker is not an agent for me/us, but is an agent for the Seller and has a contract providing for a fee to be paid to Broker by Seller upon sale, trade, lease or transfer of Seller’s business or property.

    5. If I/we determine I/we do not wish to pursue the proposed transaction, I/we will promptly advise Broker of this fact and will deliver to Broker all the proprietary and other information given to me/us without retaining copies, summaries, analyses or extracts thereof.

    6. This Non-Disclosure Agreement will be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Wisconsin without regard to the state's conflicts of laws principles. All litigation shall take place in Waukesha County, Wisconsin or the Eastern District Court of Wisconsin. I/we unconditionally and irrevocably waive any right to assert that the law of any other jurisdiction governs this agreement.


  • Please note: If you are representing a buyer(s), the buyer(s) must sign this Non-Disclosure Agreement as well.

    I/we acknowledge that this Non-Disclosure Agreement is between VR/Lakes Business Group, Inc., the signers below, and any and all sellers/businesses presented to the signer(s) below. I/we acknowledge that I/we have received an exact copy of this Non-Disclosure Agreement and that I/we have read this Non-Disclosure Agreement carefully and fully understand it.
