disvestituresCompanies are carving out, spinning off and shedding non-core business units to focus on areas of competency.  They create a competitive edge while reinforcing their core areas and spinning off selected portions of their business, and there are companies, both publicly and privately held, willing to acquire at a above market price to create unique value propositions.
Whether you plan to sell all or part of your business, we bring extensive industry knowledge and local market experience from around the globe to your transaction. Throughout the sale or divestiture process—from initial planning and marketing through due diligence, closing, and post-closing—we can help you address and mitigate issues that may arise. Specifically, we can help with:

  • analysis of shareholder alternatives,
  • business valuation,
  • pre-sale due diligence,
  • identification of qualified buyers, strategic and financial, globally,
  • development of a confidential selling memorandum,
  • assistance in transaction origination, structuring, negotiations, and closing,
  • manage the entire process along with other service providers, for transaction support and post-transaction services.

The complexity of most carve-out scenarios requires an investment bank with the capabilities and experience needed to handle the most demanding transaction situations.  We have extensive experience and have had tremendous success helping resolve the complex financial, operational, and human capital issues associated with these types of transactions. We provide clients with a comprehensive service solution via our access to consulting, post merger integration, valuation and pre-sale due diligence services.
For middle market companies, we are adept at helping prepare for the sale of a business. We are especially successful in helping executives and owners articulate to potential buyers the unique value of their business. At the same time, our extensive network of contacts within Fortune 2000 companies—along with extensive relationships with private equity investors—can prove very beneficial in identifying potential buyers of your business.
