How we help in divestitures
While divestitures for Private Equity of an M&A department of a corporation is daily business, it typically is NOT for the company to be sold nor for its management. Divesting a company while ensuring it continues focusing on its ambitious financial and operational targets is a true challenge and it gets a bigger challenge the longer a divestiture process lasts. And it’s even a bigger challenge for smaller assets where people in corporate support functions are scarce and where management carries a disproportionate share of the extra burden stemming from the divestiture activities.
An additional consideration when selling mid-sized and smaller assets is the fact that a supporting teams of consultants binds significant resources internally.
Crealisatio supports divestiture processes typically as a complementary support to a financial and M&A advisors. What we bring to a divestiture is a deep understanding of industrial logic and technology and the ability to package and communicate this in a concise and convincing way. Our experience, know-how and seniority helps making a divestiture an effective and efficient process maximizing the value of the transaction for the seller and minimizing the extra-burden for the management of the asset to ensure it can focus on delivering its business goals.

Reference Case: Divestiture of Non-Core Asset
1. Client Situation
A large conglomerate intended to sell a portfolio company considered non-core to the business. The industrial engineered goods company had revenues of around € 60 Mio with multiple manufacturing and service sites around the globe.
Crealisatio as the project lead structured, planned and lead the turn-around program. The program was rather broad and involved closing of two sites with reallocation of production to other sites, SG&A reductions, pricing optimization and the program controlling.
