BEN WILLIAMS and MOLLY MOODY — Term sheets and commitment letters

In commercial finance, the difference between a term sheet and a commitment letter is like the difference between a football prospect’s “soft commitment” and an executed National Letter of Intent.  They are both are beneficial and significant – but they are not the same.

Unfortunately, hepatitis B is not yet one of them. […] [...]
