How we work with clients

Leading companies consider divestments as fundamental to their business strategy – they focus on selling assets in the same rigorous way they focus on acquisitions. These companies often carve out or spin off a business unit and redeploy capital raised to strengthen their core business and reinvest in high-growth areas.

Family-owned companies may sell their business to comfortably fund retirement, to support future generations or to find a partner who will protect the legacy of the business. And middle-market businesses and private equity firms also sell entire companies to monetize their investment.

Our goal is to help clients realize value, accelerate close and minimize business disruptions. We help clients reach their strategic goals, optimize their portfolio, evaluate divestiture risks and rewards and prepare them to execute the transaction.

Our services span the transaction life cycle:

  • Strategy/portfolio management
  • Equity story development and delivery
  • Separation planning
  • Negotiation and execution
  • Optimization of the remaining business
