Divestiture M&A News: May 2009

Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC


The May 2009 edition of Divestiture M&A News, produced by Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC, addresses:

  • Divestiture volume remained consistent in the midst of continued economic uncertainty for the Q1 2009 LTM period as compared to CY2008.  Total transaction value continued to decrease, dropping 15 percent while average value per deal dropped 10 percent for the same period. 
  • While divestitures continue to close, the decrease in the size of divestitures has been driven by limited capital, access to credit, and an overall decline in valuation levels.
  • Some companies are increasingly looking to strategic divestitures to dispose of underperforming and non-core assets in order to raise cash and realign their businesses.
