A company exited but there is still unrealized value shown. Why?

When a company exits, the acquiror usually holds back some portion of the purchase price in order to satisfy contingencies. The most common examples of this are indemnification escrows and milestone-based payments. These portions of the exit consideration are typically realized over several years following the exit. There may also be stock of a private company acquiror received in an exit, which may remain unrealized for many years.
