Delivering bottom-line benefits for sell-side transactions
||Identify the right deal
From portfolio review, to perimeter definition, and divestiture strategy, Deloitte helps clients address their long-term growth aspirations and become a prepared seller from a financial, tax, operational, and commercial perspective. Deloitte will develop and assess client portfolio strategies, internal divestiture capabilities, transform-while-you-transact restructuring planning, and separation design and structuring.
Deloitte has a suite of innovative tools and accelerators available as part of the Total M&A Solution that drive value throughout the early transaction lifecycle. For example, iDeal is a set of analytics, visualization, and automation tools that distill detailed financial, operational, and commercial data into big-picture insights to enable impactful conversations. Additionally, ValueD is a digital platform that brings transparency to the valuation process through flexible benchmarking and dynamic modeling capabilities.
|Execute the deal successfully
Deloitte supports separation execution throughout the sell-side process by ensuring consistent messaging through a virtual data room, bidder due diligence Q&A, and sell-side banker collaboration. Deloitte helps clients develop financial information, audit-ready financial statements, tax structuring alternatives, TSA/MSA sheets, and other tax, financial, or operational separation materials required for effective deal execution. Deloitte prepares functional separation of systems, processes, people, and assets through workplans and Day 1 readiness requirements, advises readiness for cutover at closing, and executes Day 1 command centers.
Deloitte’s Total M&A Solution includes several key tools that streamline separation planning and execution activities. Among the integrated set of innovative technologies focused on executing the deal are Deloitte’s Financial Statement Carve-out Accelerator, which fast-tracks the development and audit of carve-out financial statements. D-ICE, an AI solution that analyzes unstructured contract data to significantly accelerate the contract review process; and M&A Central, a SaaS application that provides critical program management capabilities across the separation lifecycle. This set of technologies, amongst others in the Total M&A Solution suite offer M&A solutions that can be tailored to each client’s transaction journey—and help map the path ahead.
|Deliver the promised returns
Deloitte provides the support needed to draft disclosure schedules, support sellers during negotiations, and execute on organizational restructuring, post-close transformation and functional optimization of dis-synergies and stranded costs for the remaining company post-transaction. Additionally, Deloitte assists clients in post-close activities such as TSA/MSA tracking, execution, and exit planning.
As part of Deloitte’s Total M&A Solution, Flexible Computing Services is a cloud-based, preconfigured solution that allows rapid digital transformation of core business processes and technology architecture in M&A situations.
