Sell and separate

Strategic portfolio management and better divestments help you improve value from the sale of an entire company, carve-out, spin-off or joint venture. Our strategic portfolio management advice helps you decide what and when to monetize. We execute your divestment plan across the entire divestiture life cycle, including strategy, M&A, due diligence, separation program management, and structuring upon deal closing.

What EY can do for you

We offer the support you need to help achieve your divestment objectives.

Our Sell & Separate team helps deliver full value from a divestiture, whether you are an individual shareholder, corporate or a private equity fund. We help you limit disruption to the business and allow you to focus on future inclusive growth.

We help to craft your value story and deal model, market the business to buyers, prepare vendor financial, tax, HR, commercial and operational information, optimize tax to seller and buyer, prepare carve-out financials and develop operational separation/carve-out plans.

We offer deep insight to help you get answers:

  • What should I sell to reposition my business in the market?
  • How can I sell at optimal prices?
  • How can I optimize my divestment strategy to raise capital for future investments?
  • How can I sell non-core assets to preserve capital and help digitally transform my business?
  • When is the right time to sell?
  • Portfolio strategy

    We help you assess your portfolio of businesses, including strategic fit, underlying value, contribution to the overall performance and transaction alternatives.

  • Vendor diligence

    We prepare Transaction diligence materials for financial, tax, HR, commercial and operational information based on the understanding of the buyers’ needs and priorities with the use of Advanced Analytics — leveraging strategic AA, financial or operational algorithms combined with complex data sets into new insights, facilitating better, faster and more decisive actions.
