Divestment of business


We understand selling a business is sensitive and that it’s not just about getting things technically right. Often there is anxiety and emotions surrounding a divestment – and it’s certainly not business as usual.

Our Corporate Finance team can work with you to determine a suitable approach and help guide you through the complex issues at each and every stage of divestment process, so it runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Our services include:

Sale preparation

  • Planning and evaluation of divestment strategy
  • Identification and evaluation of potential buyers (local but also globally)
  • Initiation of first contact
  • Marketing
  • Pre-sale review of the business

Preparation of marketing materials including information memorandum

  • Development of “marketing” messages around performance, position and prospects

  • Information Memorandum preparation will typically include the following:

    • Market landscape

    • Profiling of the company and management

    • Quality of financial performance

    • Presentation of historical and prospective financial and business information; and

    • Growth opportunities

Evaluation of offers

  • Evaluation of the elements included in the offer (e.g. Offer price, valuation basis and key assumptions, etc.)

  • Assessment of potential issues to be addressed in the definitive agreements
