Selling a Business
Leading companies consider divestments as fundamental to their business strategy – they focus on selling assets in the same rigorous way they focus on acquisitions. These companies often carve out or spin off a business unit and redeploy capital raised to strengthen their core business and reinvest in high-growth areas.

Family-owned companies may sell their business to comfortably fund retirement, to support future generations or to find a partner who will protect the legacy of the business. And middle-market businesses and private equity firms also sell entire companies to monetize their investment.

When it comes to selling a business, a successful strategy requires active portfolio management and a well-planned divestment process. Bestar’s team of specialists guides you through your divestiture, from developing an exit strategy to optimizing the value of your retained business. 

We help clients evaluate the potential risks and rewards of a divestiture, realize value, prepare them to executive the deal with minimal business disruptions, reach their strategic goals and optimize their portfolio.
