    In this case, the financial institution that entered into the futures contract is exposed to a higher risk in the event of default or non-settlement by the customer than if the contract was regularly evaluated against the market. Similarly, a reporting company is not necessarily required to redeem warrants that may be issued under the terms of the FSA. Warrants are not binding at the option of shareholders and therefore do not fall within the scope of ASC 480 (ASC 480-10-55-33). In accordance with the relevant guidance of CSA 480 and ASC 815-40, the shares and warrants underlying futures purchase agreements issued by PSPC should be analyzed to determine whether one or both instruments should be treated as separate legal instruments or as a single instrument. In a term financing structure, due diligence is usually limited, especially if the real estate project is still in its early stages. An issuer is not required to buy back the FSA as a stand-alone instrument. Therefore, the instrument is not redeemable at the level of the FSA, i.e. in disregard of the conditions for the repurchase of the shares and underlying warrants of the municipalities. However, under normal accounting practices, futures contracts issued on redeemable (due) shares are considered redeemable instruments subject to CSA 480. In a futures contract, the buyer takes a long position, while the seller takes a short position. The idea behind futures is that the parties involved can use them to manage volatility by setting the prices of the underlying assets. In this sense, a futures contract is a way to hedge against market uncertainty. The use of futures structures requires increased attention from both the investor and the buyer.

    The size and unregulated nature of the futures market means that, at worst, it can be vulnerable to a cascading series of defaults. While banks and financial firms mitigate this risk by being very careful in choosing their counterparty, there is a possibility of major default. Futures contracts are not traded on a central exchange and are therefore considered over-the-counter (OTC) instruments. Although their OTC nature facilitates the adjustment of conditions, the absence of a central clearing house also leads to a higher risk of default. As a result, futures are not as easily accessible to the retail investor as futures. Futures are also a type of derivative, but they are not identical to futures. They also allow two parties to agree to buy or sell an asset at a certain price in the future. There are three main features that distinguish them from futures. In a forward purchase agreement, the parties enter into a contract to buy or sell an asset at an agreed price at a future date or upon the occurrence of a particular future event. These agreements have become a popular strategy as PSPC looks for new options and modalities to attract potential targets.

    A forward buy transaction can be attractive to both buyers and sellers. Among other benefits, a buyer can avoid a tendering and marketing process that would typically accompany a completed or stabilized asset, and can also better understand the physical characteristics of the project during the development phase. A seller, on the other hand, could shorten his holding period, make his profits earlier, increase his return on investment and possibly use the certainty of exit to get a cheaper mortgage. Although a forward purchase agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by the Company and the forward buyer and is a valid and binding agreement between the Company and the Limited Partner that is enforceable against the Company and the Limited Partner in accordance with its terms, unless applicability may result from bankruptcy, bankruptcy or similar laws that will normally enforce the rights of creditors from time to time in force and after principles of general applicability. In a forward buying structure, due diligence is very important. The investor-buyer should (i) conduct thorough due diligence with respect to zoning/permitting and construction, including from a technical perspective, prior to signing the purchase agreement to clearly identify what they are buying, and (ii) perform confirmation due diligence shortly before closing to ensure that the property under construction complies with the agreed construction program….
