Exit Review

Exit Review

Cavendish has built its reputation by selling businesses and maximising shareholder value through a strictly controlled sale process, often to a tight time scale. However, we have found that the value of a business can be further significantly enhanced through proper preparation prior to a sale.

To assist shareholders who have the time to plan a future exit strategy, Cavendish has developed its Exit Review Process. This is strategically aimed at enhancing value and positioning businesses for sale during the 6-18 months prior to commencing a sale exercise.

Exit Review is headed up by Caroline Belcher, who has over 19 years international experience working with companies to increase their overall profit and value including American Express, Gemini Consulting, Venture Consulting, Credit Suisse and Arthur D. Little.

As a result of the Exit Review process, rather than an immediate sale to Trade or Private Equity it may be more appropriate to carry out an interim re-financing or minority sale to an equity investor. Our Capital Advisory team works closely with Caroline in such situations.

“Cavendish made a decisive contribution to the strategy we developed for one of our medical products businesses. Their work combined excellent industry understanding with a very practical approach to creating value.
