Divestments

The business landscape is fast-moving and ever changing, especially with the global pandemic still in play. Whether a business is trying to raise cash, restructure, reduce debt or facing bankruptcy, divestment can be a key way to reduce costs, repay debt, refocus a business and streamline operations.

What is divestiture?

Divestiture (or divestment) means selling an asset, business interest or investments.

It can help a business to repay its debts, cut costs, streamline operations, and in turn, increase resale value or enhance stockholder value. It can also help private business founders and owners realise value from a lifetime of work.
There are a number of ways that divestiture can occur: full sale, partial sale, sale of subsidiary, and demerger.
