A Candid Conversation on Carve-Outs
The carve-out craze is crazier than ever.
When it comes to M&A activity, carve-outs are notoriously complex and plagued by low success rates. Yet, the number of carve-outs conducted by buyout firms continues to rise – signifying the tremendous potential upside of this complicated deal.
On December 4th, we’re carving out time to discuss the path to a successful carve-out. (Pun intended.) Join us as we walk-through: the most common diligence downfalls, the do’s and don’ts of Day 1 readiness, the hidden tripwires of the first 100 days, and the keys to successfully structure and exit a TSA.
Discussion topics include:
- TSA Trouble: Which risky aspects of the TSA/purchase agreements are most commonly overlooked? What are best practices for operationalizing the TSA?
- People Problems: How can you ensure you have the right people in the right roles to drive the business forward?
- Cash and Credit Challenges: What’s the best way to manage standalone cash-in/cash-out between establishing credit and new billing processes, managing liquidity and debt, and standing up bank accounts/KYC and treasury?
- Stakeholder Reporting Stand-up: How can you quickly (but thoroughly) stand up IT systems and tools? And, what can you do in the meantime?
