Planned Outcomes

Divestiture planning and execution


Successful surgery relies on a combination of detailed examinations, effective medical practices and surgeon experience and intuition. The same is true when a company decides to sell all or part of the business — a transaction can go horribly wrong without accurate and extensive due diligence information. Worse yet, significant value can be lost if deal execution falters post-closing.

Deloitte’s Divestiture Planning and Execution practice brings an outside-in perspective to the divestiture process based on thousands of transactions across industries. Understanding that each transaction time frame differs, Deloitte’s divestiture practice can help companies balance speed with elegance to manage transaction risk, minimize transition service agreements (TSAs), maximize deal value and address potential stranded costs.
