What you should consider

Selling your company, or parts of it, is a major strategic decision, requiring careful and diligent assessment of a range of issues including the following key questions:

  • How will shareholders, customers, suppliers and other related parties react to the transaction and what is the best communication strategy for each of these groups?  
  • What are your exit alternatives - divestment to a strategic or financial acquirer or an IPO? 
  • What is the potential value and how can it be optimised through preparations in advance of a potential exit? 
  • Who are the relevant possible acquirers and how should the equity story be tailored to maximise their level of interest? 
  • Is the timing right or will the value change significantly in the near future? 
  • What is the optimal transaction structure - complete or partial sale, asset or share transactions, payment in cash or shares, earn-out options? 
  • How should the divestment process be designed to optimise competition and minimise execution risk? 
  • How can management and key staff best be incentivised to support the process?
