Companies increasingly need to divest
Divesting companies today will require creativity. Innovation will include deal structures to cover equity, debt, management and counterparty arrangements.
Many of the accepted "rules" for divestment processes no longer hold true. There will be no such thing as a "normal" structured divestment process until further notice. Furthermore, preparation will need far more consideration. Divestments will not yield the value they did when the economy was expanding steadily. Value will be more elusive. This is a buyers’ market – not a sellers’ – and the best defence against that shift is focusing intensely on the buyers’ requirements when preparing a divestment for market.
