Corporate Divestment


Corporate Divestment typically involves a company selling its non-core businesses or assets to improve focus on its principal activities, realise value or achieve greater efficiency.

Divesting a business unit can free up time for a parent company's management to focus on its core operations whilst proceeds from divestment are typically used to pay off debt, fund working capital or capital expenditure, or to pay a special dividend to shareholders.

If a company is considering a divestment program Spectrum Corporate Finance can conduct a strategic review, assessing options, providing feedback on recent M&A activity and potential market appetite. Working with our client we can design and execute a project plan which maximises value and minimises disruption.

“We were impressed with the service and delivery from Spectrum. They managed a competitive process which resulted in several offers being received and the transaction exchanging only 11 weeks after appointment and 5 weeks from the first meeting with ACS. Their willingness to resolve difficult due diligence issues with the target was crucial in getting the deal over the line.” Dean Eldrid, Director, M&A Serco Group plc
