Divest To Create Internal Improvements,
Shareholder Value Or Cash Flow

divestiture

Selling Off Your Business
Interests Has A Lot Of Benefits

Divestiture can represent a partial or full disposal of a business entity through exchange, closure, or outright sale.

This strategy is used for growth, obtaining funds, enhancing stability or for breaking the business into units to reach greater value than the consolidated company.

Company value can be maximized in good times to reduce stress for owners, employees and families.

EXIT THIS WAY – SUCCESSION PLANNING:
Offers crucial information in making correct decisions if you are thinking about selling your business and how to sell for maximum value.

“Wise executives divest businesses so that they can create new ones and expand existing ones.”

Before agreeing to less-than-optimal terms just to close the deal, a Pavilion M&A advisor should review all options for the sale, or partial sale, of your business and structure a deal with the best price and terms for you.

Divestiture

Divestitures help companies maintain their strategic focus.

Selling assets with poor profitability frees up internal assets, which the company can use to strengthen its other businesses. Disposal of non-core assets avoids costly distractions and creates value.

Divestitures also provide cash to purchase or improve assets that can enhance profitability.

Waiting Too Long = Too Little, Too Late

The costs of holding onto businesses, particularly successful ones, are high. Finding the best buyer for the sale of your business can be challenging. The entire process may seem daunting when you add financing to the equation. Here are a few risks that may not be recognized by a business owner:

  • Every seller knows a buyer, but the results are not optimal
  • Not being prepared for the extensive effort and time the deal will take
  • Failing to create a competitive sales process
  • Having an inadequate understanding of competitors and market comparables
  • Failing to negotiate and agree upon a favorable Purchase Agreement
  • Overestimating the value of your business and undervaluing intangible assets
  • Not appreciating that time is the enemy of all deals
  • Failing to communicate the vision and strategic fit
  • Not understanding the negotiation dynamics

Sell sooner. For the vast majority of divestitures we’ve studied, it’s clear that an earlier sale would have generated much higher returns.

Reduce the risk of selling by working with a Pavilion advisor who specializes in negotiating Merger and Acquisition transactions.

  • Our firm is a Private Equity group who has the goal of investing over $300M for acquisitions.  We were having challenges finding and locating the “right deal” in US or Canada.  After much frustration seeking sellers who would qualify, I contacted Pavilion. I must admit after some scepticism, they are introducing me to transactions that have impressed.  They have a complete system for “deal flow” that now means we are on track to reach our investment goals.

  • After searching for more than 2 years to locate a fit and value, without success, we contacted Pavilion to see if they could help.  We retained Pavilion to help us acquire a company that fit our investment criteria. Within 24 hours they introduced me to sellers that I wasn’t aware of and the phone call with the seller went very well.  We are now in the Due Diligence phase and I’m very pleased that our transaction is on track for success.
