Transaction Advisory Services

  • Share


Whether you are planning an internal separation or divestment of a business, we help you effectively manage the transition – from strategic review, planning, and investment risk identification through to execution.

For sellers, we aim to avoid business disruption, minimise costs to the retained business and gain maximum value on disposal. For buyers, our focus is on operational issues to help ensure that the business is viable on closing and that there is appropriate support during the transition period.

Client benefits

  • Achieve maximum value for carved-out business
  • Identify opportunities to enhance value and minimise costs
  • Increase capability and limit disruption to management and business
  • Reduce operational and IT risks
