Divestitures & Acquisitions

Divestitures

Companies are sold – in whole or in part – for a wide variety of reasons including succession planning, retirement, to ‘take some chips off the table’ and even for growth. By engaging Corplan you will be able to focus on maximizing the value of your company, without distraction, while we discreetly find you the best buyer partner and help close the transaction.

In addition to our years of focus on seven major industry sectors, Corplan has database access to 80+ million companies worldwide – with 40 different search criteria – to discreetly and selectively pinpoint the best strategic buyers for your company.

During the divestiture process a significant amount of value can be created or lost. Corplan will help you prepare for your divestiture – even years in advance – by comparing and discussing with you the various exit options available for your company, evaluating the best ‘sectors’ where strategic buyers will be found, determining a preliminary market value, assessing tax matters and by helping to ensure the ‘key drivers’ and information desired by the buyer prospects are all in place prior to initiating the marketing process.

Whether you want to sell the whole company, or just take some chips off the table, we have the expertise to get the deal done.

Our process includes:

  • Advance preparations for your divestiture intentions
  • Confirming your priorities and objectives
  • Determine which approach to take with buyers: auction, modified auction, one-on-one, etc.
  • Establishing the confidentiality procedures
  • Creating a company profile memorandum (CIM) and other information packages
  • Building a client-specific database of leading potential strategic buyers
  • Creating a confidential online Data Room for the key information for the buyer prospects
  • Due diligence & negotiations
  • Closing

Every divestiture engagement is different. But, what doesn't change is the need for rigid confidentiality and precise execution.
