Experienced and reliable carve-out support

M&A activity has started to gather speed, as corporates and PE firms seize the investment opportunities that have presented themselves. All whilst borrowing costs are relatively low.

Firms are looking to speed up their growth and expansion into new geographics, widen their product and service portfolio, obtain new technologies and increase their customer base. And carve-outs can prove a very strategic, and savvy, accelerant.

Achieving growth through M&A can be burdensome. Processes can be extremely complex, timelines extremely tight, mistakes extremely costly and errors extremely public. Corporates, PE firms, financial advisors and law firms focus on finalizing transactions as soon as possible and ensuring they are prepared for when the Transactional Service Agreement (TSA) ends in a few months’ time. If things are not ready, the whole transaction could be derailed and/or exceptionally costly penalties incurred.

The acquirer must ensure that the new stand-alone entity is set up appropriately, and compliantly, across all locations. That all acquired employees continue to be paid, uninterrupted. That all accounting and tax requirements are catered for. That customers can be invoiced as soon as required. And that all appropriate licenses and permissions are obtained.
