earnout clauses


Explanation:
Here's what it is in French, although it is apparently common to use the English term :

"Clause d'indexation sur les bénéfices futurs"


1 - http://www.investorwords.com/e1.htm#earnout (I'm getting to quite like this EN/EN dico as the terms are explained concisely. It looks pretty reliable)

earnout = An arrangement in which sellers of a business receive additional future payment, usually based on future earnings

(earnings = Revenues minus cost of sales, operating expenses, and taxes, over a given period of time. The reason corporations exist, and often the single most important determinant of a stock's price. also called income. see also dilution, earnout, fundamental analysis, growth, normalized earnings, operating income, price/earnings ratio, quantitative analysis, retained earnings, return on assets, return on equity, value investing, cash earnings, current income, cookie jar accounting)
