Corporate carve outs transaction insights: removing the corporate umbrella

29 April 2021

As we emerge from COVID-19, many large corporates will be assessing the shape of their group in light of their evolving strategy. While various factors will influence the decision to undertake a carve-out, we are expecting an increase in corporate divestments as we are already seeing larger groups adopt a renewed focus on core operations.

In our report we outline some of the key aspects of managing the carve-out process to maximise shareholder value, focussing on two critical areas: the clarity on the decision to sell and constructing a framework to manage the sale process.

Within the framework, we consider the importance of the following:

  • taking time to clearly define and confirm the proposed carve-out;
  • crafting the equity story; and
  • creating the separation plan and a clear road map.
