Divesting or carving out a portion of your company’s assets can accomplish a variety of goals — raise capital, increase management focus, realize value, reduce debt, comply with competition rules, and exit non-core businesses.

Exiting all or part of a business has many moving parts to manage and organizational effects that need to be considered and analyzed prior to execution. A divestiture or carve-out is a complex transaction that can takes months to complete.

We help clients lay the groundwork for separating a business and work with you to:

  • Realign your corporate portfolio
  • Coordinate responses to buyers’ questions and operate a data room
  • Determine the operational challenges of closing the deal
  • Develop carve-out cost structures, focused on identifying and resolving business separation and transition issues
  • Perform information technology and operations due diligence
  • Assist in developing and implementing a post-divestiture integration plan
  • Develop the carve-out or divestiture separation playbook, including technology, HR, reporting, support function set-up, asset and employee transfer, and Transition Service Agreements (TSAs)
  • Manage and assist with separation execution
