In other words, what's the SLA?

It's not just what's the SLA, it's also how can they be confident that the company will still be around to deliver what they promise in their SLA. This would be a particularly important issue if, for the sake of argument, it turned out that there were a lot of angry, litigious customers from a previous business venture run by a related company who might try to come after the company now running or its directors.
