Managed exit

Providing a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive solution

Even the most successful companies may need to address and reconsider the future of underperforming and non-core assets.

Managing underperforming or non-core assets often involves working out how to make a clean cut and sometimes in an accelerated timetable.

At Deloitte, we’ve developed comprehensive solutions to help businesses evaluate their options when contemplating an exit strategy for underperforming and/or non-core areas of their business.

Our approach

Implementing an exit without a well-thought-out and carefully structured plan can negatively impact many aspects of your core business, particularly reputation, the financial outlay associated with an exit and the time investment to conclude an exit.

We work alongside our clients throughout the exit process, from developing an initial strategy through to detailed planning and hands-on implementation, with the ultimate goal being to free up valuable capital and management time.

We draw on an extensive network across services and jurisdictions, offering deep knowledge and global experience to advise businesses through exit strategies.

Key components
  • Fix – Where retention is an option, we develop strategies in collaboration with our Value Creation Services team, providing access to Turnaround experts who specialise in helping our clients to identify and implement profit improvement opportunities.
  • Sell – Where the business is underperforming or non-core, a speedy outcome is often preferred and this is where our specialist Accelerated M&A team supports clients looking for a prompt disposal of all or part of the non-core or underperforming operation.
  • Close – Alongside planning for a sale process, our Managed Exit specialists perform high level planning to identify the costs and risks associated with a closure. Subsequently the team support in the development of detailed exit plans, project management and hands-on implementation of any closure. Where a corporate entity needs to be liquidated, after the operations are wound down our Corporate Simplification team can advise on the planning and implementation of liquidation.
