As companies continuously examine their ongoing business strategies, they may explore the sale of certain assets or business units to align their current operations with their future growth plans to enhance shareholder value.
Whether involving the sale of a subsidiary, a product line or an asset, these transactions require careful forward planning. Often the assets or entities being sold are fully integrated in the operations of the seller, or the buyer may require ongoing assistance from the seller after the conclusion of a divestiture, potentially complicating the scale and scope of a transaction. A comprehensive, multifaceted separation strategy is critical to successfully negotiating, structuring and completing a divestiture. Join us for a 2-part webinar series where our presenters will share the strategic steps a selling company can take to prepare for a successful divestiture or carve-out transaction.
On Thursday, September 14, Fenwick M&A partners Lynda Twomey and Victoria Lupu, tax partner Will Skinner, and executive compensation and employee benefits partner Gerald Audant will address deal preparation and planning, legal structuring, operational assessment and readiness, key transaction terms, tax considerations, and employee considerations in divestiture transactions.
