No. of Prokens Required: 2 |

Document Preview:


A memorandum of understanding (MOU) in a joint venture situation. This represents the good faith intentions of the parties to proceed but is not legally binding. This document is drafted in Neutral Form.

The parties believe that the joint venture will be in their mutual best interests. They recognise that the various arrangements will need careful review but each will endeavour in good faith to agree the detailed terms of the joint venture, on the basis of the principles set out in this Memorandum, and to take all necessary other actions in order successfully to establish the joint venture. The parties' preferred intention is to create a new jointly-owned company into which they would transfer their existing interests. The parties will consider appropriate alternative structures if that becomes necessary or desirable because of tax and cost efficiency.
