QuickStart: to Carve-Outs

Carve-Outs made simpler

Our QuickStart: to Carve-Outs makes it quicker and easier to form global, compliant and fully operational NewCos following a carve-out.

The challenges:

Acquiring or considering a carve-out? You’ll need to make sure the carved-out company is able to operate as a stand-alone entity.

Buyers are – naturally – focused on having to quickly finalise transactions while preparing for life after their Transitional Service Agreements (TSAs) come to an end.

Here’s what we’ve learned from supporting some of the largest and most recent carve-outs:

  • Buyers are acquiring little or no back office infrastructure
  • They have little or no existing presence in acquired countries and so are unaware of local rules and regulations
  • Buyers have multiple integration partners to manage
  • They typically have 6-12 months’ breathing space from a TSA which is often expensive and a source of tension
  • Buyers are constrained by tight acquisition timelines.

The solution:

QuickStart: to Carve-Outs is designed to make the whole process easier to manage. We can help you to:

  • create and maintain new corporate entities where necessary
  • avoid interruptions to the payroll process and help your staff get paid
  • take care of your accounting and tax compliance requirements
  • help your NewCo remain compliant with local regulations
  • apply for or oversee transfer of licenses and registrations of new entities
  • manage requirements across all locations related to the carve-out.
