In light of the economic downturn and recent notable court decisions strictly enforcing the terms of non-recourse carve-out guarantees, operating partners increasingly demand that their capital partners share the risks and liabilities associated with these “bad boy” guarantees. More and more, such risk-sharing arrangements are being documented outside of the joint venture agreement through a separate reimbursement or contribution agreement. Capital partners often insist that this backstop only applies when such liabilities do not result from the operating partner’s bad acts, or result from external events or circumstances beyond the operating partner’s control.
