M&A Overview: The Corporate Divestiture Process and the Role of Accounting Professionals  

CATEGORY: Specialized Knowledge & Applications
2 CPE Credits
Level: Basic

Corporate divestitures – the sale of a discrete business unit, such as a division, a subsidiary, or a product line -- are common among firms attempting to realign their business portfolios with their strategies and their markets. In practice they occur quite frequently, accounting for fully one-third of all M&A activity in the last several decades. Despite their frequency of occurrence and the significance of the value at risk to the seller, there is a dearth of professional guidance and literature on the implementation of these transactions – transactions which have significantly different characteristics than their buy-side counterparts (acquisitions).

Accounting professionals play a key role in executing these transactions. This webinar will provide those professionals with an understanding of the unique dynamics of divestitures, as well as the pitfalls and the success factors associated with their execution.
