Leading CMOs are developing acquisition strategies based on reinforcing their customer base, expanding their geographic reach and broadening their capabilities. Similarly, customers are increasingly demanding simpler sourcing models that can deliver speed and reliability.
Divestment is often the most favoured strategy for surplus manufacturing or R&D assets. Our experience has taught us that delays in the divestment process can significantly erode value and diminish attractiveness to buyers. Speed and control of the selling process are in a seller’s best interest as site operating costs usually make up a significant part of business operations. Every month of delay could add unnecessary thousands, if not millions to operating costs prior to a sale.
