Sales & Divestitures

Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC

Massive consolidation engulfs many industries, as evidenced by the continued high level of merger and acquisition activity. At the same time, many companies are carving out, spinning off, or otherwise shedding non-core business units and functions to focus on core competency areas. These trends offer opportunities for companies of all sizes:

  • Larger companies can create financial and competitive advantages by carving out or spinning off selected portions of their businesses, while reinforcing remaining core areas through targeted acquisitions.
  • Mid-size companies, both publicly and privately held, may find willing buyers of their businesses if they have the right products or unique value proposition.

Is your company considering any such move? If so, Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC (DCF) can help.

Whether you plan to sell all or part of your business, we bring extensive industry knowledge and local market experience from around the globe to your transaction. Throughout the sale or divestiture process from initial planning and marketing through due diligence, closing, and post-closing we can help you anticipate and address issues that arise. Specifically, we can help with:

  • Analysis of viable shareholder alternatives,
  • Business valuation,
  • Pre-sale due diligence,
  • Identification of qualified strategic and financial buyers globally,
  • Development of a confidential selling memorandum,
  • Assistance in transaction origination, structuring, negotiations, and closing,
  • Coordination with other Deloitte LLP subsidiaries to provide transaction support and post-transaction services.

The complexity of most carve-out scenarios requires an investment bank with the capabilities and experience needed to handle the most demanding transaction situations. We have extensive experience in helping larger companies undertake carve-out transactions. In fact, we have had tremendous success helping resolve the complex financial, operational, and human capital issues associated with these types of transactions. We provide clients with a comprehensive service solution via our access to consulting, post merger integration, valuation, tax and pre-sale due diligence services professionals housed within the subsidiaries of our ultimate parent Deloitte LLP.

For middle market companies, we are adept at helping prepare for the sale of a business. We are especially successful in helping executives and owners articulate to potential buyers the unique value of their business. At the same time, our extensive network of contacts within Fortune 2000 companies along with extensive relationships with private equity investors can prove very beneficial in identifying potential buyers of your business.
