The Divestiture Process

Selling a business is a complex and intense task. Properly managed, the divestiture process usually takes 6 months and includes the following steps:

  • Preparation of Information Document

  • Identification and screening of prospective acquirers

  • Distribution and review of Information Document with prospective acquirers

  • Supplementary information and follow up meetings/discussions on interest and valuation threshold

  • Assessment of offers and negotiations

  • Offer acceptance and assistance through due diligence to closure

It is important that the business being sold remains well managed throughout this time period. We work co-operatively with owners and senior managment through every phase of the divestiture process, while minimizing demands on their time, allowing them to focus on managing the operation.
