The Art of M&A® for Divestiture & Carve-Out Leaders / Live-Online / May 2023
Divestitures are not “acquisitions” spelled backward – they are amongst the most challenging transaction types to execute well from end to end. Even for highly experienced acquirers, divestitures require an entirely different level of readiness and experience than most acquisitions.
This live-online training course will help you and your organization lead, plan, launch and execute a successful sell-side divestiture or buy-side carve-out acquisition (D/CO). Every session provides essential learnings, processes, and best practices necessary to drive strategic growth through MA&D and for building a more robust and repeatable M&A capability within your organization’s business portfolio.
