Acquisition and divestiture strategy

Diligence activity used to be limited to the acquisition side of transactions, but now sellers are performing this critical review too. The reasons are similar: get the most value from the transaction with the least amount of risk and exposure.

A winning strategy and experienced resources are essential for success

Acquisitions and divestitures are proven strategies to increase organizational value, and several process adjustments to ensure alignment with the investment thesis can affect their likelihood for success. The broad objectives of a transaction are usually maximizing value, limiting risk exposures and accelerating speed. The specific objectives of a transaction are usually unique to every deal.
