Companies must constantly optimize their portfolio of strategic assets to remain competitive. With advanced analytics and proactive portfolio analysis, divestitures are now an equally important partner to M&A for reinvesting funds, renewing operations, and repositioning a company for growth.
However, the interconnectedness of businesses, products and capabilities within a company create operational challenges when attempting to move at the pace of strategic deal making.
How do you disentangle the underlying infrastructure, intellectual property, and shared commercial arrangements? How do you reorganize your remaining organization? How will the carve-out business operate as a standalone business? How do you engage key stakeholders?
At PwC, detail-oriented execution meets big thinking. Our dual perspective helps on-the-ground execution move in lockstep with your broader deal strategy – navigating through complexity to clearly see a path to results.
Some say practice makes perfect – and we agree. Our global deals experience across industries has made finding and moving towards new sources of value second nature to us – even if it requires altering the course of a deal in progress. Key components of our services include:
The impact of a divestiture lasts long after the transaction ends. Whether it’s creating ongoing value from the transaction you just completed or identifying what’s next for your core business, we stay in tune with your strategy and the economic landscape to help build on your success and propel you towards your strategic goals.
We don’t think there’s a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to divestitures. That’s why we adapt our proprietary approach to custom fit our teams and how we work so they match your culture, people and strategic needs. This way, our people help bolster your team’s efforts through on-the-ground support that keeps you one step ahead.
“Overall, the deals [three divestitures] represented a significant business success for Intuit, letting the company tighten its focus on its core business while giving the target businesses the chance to thrive under new ownership.”
