Selling a business

Selling a business

KPMG’s integrated team of specialists can guide you in selling a business, from analysing your portfolio value to enhancing your retained business.

KPMG can guide you through a divestiture, helping you develop an exit strategy.

When it comes to selling a business, a successful strategy requires active portfolio management and a well-planned exit or divestment process.

Our Deal Advisory professionals are forward-looking specialists with a broad range of skills, deep industry expertise, and a view on the future, to help you stay in front of the issues and avoid loss of value.

From helping you understand the potential risks and rewards of a divestiture to supporting you in minimising value leakage, we assess your situation and support your negotiating position to maximise the sales price and execute the deal with minimal disruption to the remaining business operations.

Our integrated team of specialists helps you focus on the key questions through the critical stages in planning and executing divestitures.

  • Portfolio strategy: How do I maximise shareholder value?
  • Exit options: What are my strategic exit options to maximise shareholder value?
  • Preparing for exit: How do I prepare the business for exit?
  • Deal execution: How do I get the deal done at the right price?
  • Pre-close: Am I ready to close?
  • Post-close: How do I capture the value created?
