Company Sales and Divestitures

Sales, Divestitures, Leveraged Buyouts and Recapitalizations

Schneider Downs Corporate Finance plays a leadership role, providing comprehensive sale advisory services that generate maximum value for sellers. Our rigorous approach efficiently accesses a broad population of domestic and global buyers or investors while allowing our client to stay focused on running their business without significant distraction.

We understand that while price may be the most critical motivator for the seller, the form of consideration, structure and compatibility with the buyer may be other key ingredients to getting the right deal done. And whether our client wants to lock up a deal with just one buyer, a handful of logical candidates, or elects to pursue a broad auction to maximize value, we serve as a critical partner driving the process towards an optimal outcome by providing the following services:

  • Real-time market intelligence and comprehensive valuation guidance
  • Strategic advisory in developing a unique sale proposition, including appropriate positioning of the client for future growth
  • Creation of a compelling, high quality offering memorandum
  • Development of comprehensive lists of potential buyers and/or investors
  • Leadership and management of the transaction process
  • Primary contact and interaction with buyers and investors
  • Serve as an important buffer between buyer and seller
  • Facilitation of buyer and investor due diligence
  • Structuring and negotiation of transaction terms
