Maximize the Value of Your Transaction

A successful divestiture requires expert advice and guidance through each step of the transaction, from initial planning to a successful closing. We oversee all stages of the transaction through a strategic process, leading to efficient execution and ensuring you receive maximum value. Our team specializes in transactions from $3 million to $300 million.

Divestitures are a Multi-Step Process

Divestitures are complex transactions and every detail matters. By managing your divestiture at every stage, we can maximize your shareholder value, minimize risk and deliver results during this critical time in your business and your life.

  • Strategy Development

    When you’re ready to sell your business or divest an asset, our first step is to establish your personal and business goals. From there, we develop a strategic plan that is consistent with your needs and considers all aspects of the transaction. 

  • Purchaser Identification 

    More potential buyers leads to a better outcome for you. We have an extensive regional, national, and global network, from which we identify, screen, and target potential buyers for your business. 

  • Transaction Management 

    We manage every aspect of the transaction, including valuation of your business or asset, structuring and negotiating the deal, conducting due diligence, and delivering effective tax and financing strategies. 

  • Closing and Post-Deal Support 

    We deliver post-deal transitional management to ensure both you and the purchaser are satisfied with the transaction outcome.
