Services Disposals & Divestments
 

Kerburn Rose offers a highly discrete Disposal and Divestment service. We act primarily in situations where the vendors do not want the business to be publicly marketed for sale and in circumstances where there are likely to be a limited number of interested purchasers.

We do not practice “the catalogue approach” to selling a business offered by other corporate finance houses but work on each sales mandate as a specifically tasked project. To this end our fees are largely based upon our performance.

Our role includes:
  • Pre disposal review to ensure that all matters which might adversely effect value are addressed
  • Pre disposal tax planning
  • Producing the Sales Information Memorandum
  • Valuing the business
  • Finding and approaching potential buyers
  • Negotiations as an intermediary
  • Documenting the principle commercial terms
  • Purchaser due diligence when the consideration is not all cash
  • Project managing the deal execution
Examples of Transactions

Kerburn Rose advised the shareholders of Situsec on the sale of their company to Tarmac. By properly valuing the business and ascertaining what the buyers wanted from their acquisition Kerburn Rose were able to double the original cash offer price and keep the freehold land out of the deal which was let to the purchasers for a rental income.


Kerburn Rose was appointed by a well known VC House to assist the directors sell their specialist engineering business. It was evident from early discussions with potential vendors that no one was interested in the whole business. Buyers were identified for the two parts who were prepared to pay significantly more for the part they were interested in resulting in the two demerged business having a greater value than the whole.
