Helping a global firm carve out five businesses

The challenge
Following a strategic review of a number of its businesses in different markets, our client needed to define its divestment approach and then prepare and execute the transactions.
The solution
We supported the company with financial preparation, operational separation and Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) advisory, supporting multiple transactions running in parallel.
The result
Multiple successful divestments over an 18-month period, maximising deal value through upfront assessment and mitigation of key issues and value drivers.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Grant Thornton to anyone seeking to realise value in their business."
