Examples of contracts in a Sentence

  1. David Howman:

    I don't confine my comments to the NCAA within the United States. I would say internationally that's an area where there needs to be much more done because there are young athletes who are tempted to cheat in order to try to get the professional contracts, i don't think you can even say that there's such a thing as an amateur athlete these days except within the college system in this country.

  2. Ryan Todd:

    Increased hedging activity is a sign these firms view the outlook for the market as constructive enough to put down some protection - in a way it is almost a necessary pre-cursor to a pick-up in spending and/or production, once the value of futures contracts used for hedging moves back into a range that's reasonable, it presents an opportunity to lock in cashflow ahead of when lenders revisit the revolvers the E&P firms have in place. Having a strong outlook for the business, even if it does cap the upside, goes a long way in shoring up the risk of a lack of funding.

  3. Neal Kumar:

  4. Matt Sharp:

    In my experience, a lot of the rhetoric being tossed around to justify why (private) agencies shouldn't be given (government) contracts has been that they are 'religious bigots,' a lot of the same language directed against Jack.

  5. Anas Alhajji:

    You sign contracts based on the average norms that a society has experienced over the last 100 years. If we have a new event that is not covered by those norms, it goes into force majeure. That's what Harold Hamm and others are saying - that these are circumstances outside the norm.
