Selling or divesting a business requires careful planning and thoughtful execution. It’s an opportunity to look ahead and create a path to value, but the process can be high-stakes, emotional and fraught with financial uncertainty.
That’s where we come in. Our days are spent helping clients assess the implications of their divestiture across their business from any point in the deal spectrum—from day-one readiness planning to implementation of the deal and post-separation transition.
Whether you’re exploring a sale for succession, or wanting to spin off or sell a piece of your business, we can be your trusted adviser, every step of the way. Our deep industry experience and advanced analytics tools give you greater insight into the options and opportunities you face.
Clarify your options for sale and formalize your new strategy with the help of our corporate finance team. Commercial due diligence can also give you insight into the competitive environment and current market demand for businesses like yours.
Conduct HR due diligence to establish and understand existing HR and workforce issues that are critical early in the transaction, identify their relevance and level of impact, and ensure appropriate projections are either accounted for or addressed with the buyer as part of the transaction.
Determine the accounting implications of your divestiture. Our accounting advisory services can help prepare the often complex carve-out financial statements required so that all your assets and liabilities are identified and you meet buyer expectations and local M&A accounting standards.
Reduce disruptions and unforeseen costs to your existing business. Understand how what your selling impacts the remaining business, and mitigate any management, operational, technology or human capital risks with help from our delivering deals value and People in Deals teams.
Support your organization post-close with active stakeholder engagement and communications, culture and employee sentiment pulse check, and HR function review to ensure alignment with in the organization post-divestiture.
