Carve-Out and Vendor Assistance


Carve-Out and Vendor Assistance

Optimising the outcome

Clients looking to divest are usually aiming to optimize the outcome of the divestment decision and manage the required time for the preparation of the process. We will work with the seller to complement existing skills and resources and help address the challenges before and during the divestment process. By combining financial and operational carve-out expertise we ensure highest value to the project.

Carve-Out Assistance

During a carve-out, key operational elements are separated. Deloitte works with the client to set up appropriate processes and analyses which provides the client with detailed information, and subsequently comfort about the robustness of its standalone operations.

We will work with the client to ensure a professional preparation of historic financial information in compliance with the applicable accounting standards and considering relevant operational separation aspects, and provide a sound basis for the target company’s future reporting, for example as a listed entity.

Integration & Separation Advisory

Our Carve-out team supports with:

  • Preparing historical financial information where we apply newest analytical tools (iDeal) thereby increasing efficiency and being more effective,
  • developing a clear and properly supported financial plan and a vision of how the remaining business will operate after divestment,
  • highlighting the future value for potential buyers,
  • ensuring proper planning and preparation, on a strategic, operational and financial level,
  • identifying and resolving issues early in the process, before they cause undue delay or jeopardise the deal.

    Separation Advisory

    Divestitures aren’t just mergers in reverse – they are complex, counter-intuitive initiatives that require organizations to often undo years of integration and efficiency maximization. Our separation services include divestitures, carve-outs, spin-offs, liquidations and IPO readiness.

    Business Modelling

    Business modelling lies at the heart of the decision making process, whether it is evaluating strategic options, new investments or existing operations.

    Vendor Due Diligence

    In a competitive auction process or a dual-track process, when preparing a company for an initial public offering (IPO), a vendor due diligence report (VDD) can add substantial value for the seller.
