Managed Exit

Our Clients are often faced with the issue of how to deal with non-core or under-performing businesses. In Restructuring Services we have the skills and experience to help clients in this position with the assessment and implementation of their options.

Managed Exit is part of our global Value Creation Services (VCS), which helps corporates identify, plan and implement performance improvement initiatives.

Where a preferred option involves dealing with underlying problems, our Corporate Performance Improvement and Turnaround Planning teams are well placed to help.

However, where an exit from the business is being considered we have the skills to help, irrespective of whether the appropriate exit route is via a sale or a closure.

In these circumstances, a speedy outcome is often preferred and this is where our specialist Accelerated M&A team supports clients looking for a prompt disposal.

Alternatively, where a sale is not possible or desirable, our Wind Down and Closure expertise enables us to assist in scoping, planning and implementing a 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.
