Exit planning

At PricewaterhouseCoopers, we advise private equity stakeholders throughout the duration of their investments in order to optimise value on exit and help them become top quartile performers.

From assessing exit options before making the investment, we can call upon a whole range of PwC experts to add value, improve operations, minimise any value detractors and prepare the asset for sale.

Our services are designed to ensure that you, the vendor, remain in control of the process and are able to dictate the timetable and issues to be negotiated. Vendor due diligence aims to address the concerns and issues that may be relevant to even the most demanding purchaser. For vendors undertaking a disposal or selling off a part of their own business, vendor assistance provides bespoke solutions to assist you in successfully completing your divestments.

With Accelerated Vendor Support, we help vendors maintain value in very short disposal processes (1-2 weeks) ensuring the focus is on the key value drivers.

We also provide advice on Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) covering all stages of the process, from preparing for life as a public company, selecting the right capital market and establishing the right team of advisers, to advising on regulatory issues. This advice includes compliance with the listing and prospectus rules.
