A reasonable inference to be drawn from this comment is that a purchaser under a buyer's option contract could decrease its purchases or make no purchases without necessarily articulating a legitimate business reason, subject only to the duty of good faith and fair dealing.
The Illinois Appellate Court and "buyer's option" contracts
Although only the seventh circuit has expressly adopted the term "buyer's option" contract, the Illinois Appellate Court has recognized the "buyer's option" concept in prior decisions.
Assuming the seller in a "buyer's option" contract has a duty to sell goods to the buyer at the buyer's request, but the buyer is under no obligation to purchase goods from the seller, is the contract "illusory"?
While the "buyer's option" theory has been expressly invoked only recently in reported decisions, the principle underlying the notion of a "buyer's option" contract has been long recognized in the UCC.
Relying on section 2-205, the court in both Brooklyn Bagel and Modern Dairy noted that a "buyer's option" contract does not fail for lack of consideration even though the buyer makes no commitment to purchase goods.
Decisions from the seventh circuit and the Illinois Appellate Court recognize that, absent terms sufficient to create a requirements contract, a supply agreement that sets forth price terms, product specifications, and a defined time period without mandating the purchase of a fixed quantity of goods is properly characterized as a "buyer's option" contract.
A supplier seeking greater certainty with respect to a buyer's purchasing obligations should ensure that the terms of a supply agreement cannot be construed as a buyer's option contract.
The fact that Brooklyn Bagel, Modern Dairy, and Empire Gas were each expressly decided under Illinois law further demonstrates that the "buyer's option" contract is a recognized principle of Illinois law.
