Corporate & Private Equity Divestitures

CenterPoint assists its Corporate and Private Equity clients by managing the divestiture of operating divisions and portfolio companies.

Divestitures are complex and time consuming transactions that can distract operating management from their primary duty, which is to run the division. Successfully completing a divestiture requires planning and proper execution of the process to minimize disruptions, maintain confidentiality and to ensure that the highest price and best terms are obtained.

Frequently, large investment banks will decline mid-sized divestiture projects because they fall below their minimum thresholds, yet CenterPoint specializes in these mid-sized and often difficult transactions. We are experienced in working with targeted strategic buyers as well as private equity buyers who may find more value in a business unit than the current owners.

CenterPoint assists its corporate and private equity clients by providing an independent perspective of the value of the business unit and by suggesting changes which may increase the value prior to the sale. Our comprehensive Offering Memorandums clearly articulate the value of the business entity and address concerns that buyers have when acquiring a division including continuity of management, growth opportunities, separation of assets, etc. We aggressively market the business to both strategic and financial buyers while maintaining a high level of confidentiality. Our involvement ensures that the divestiture process moves quickly and that our client receives the highest value possible for the business unit.
