In this episode, we are joined by Global PMI's Nordics Partner, Michael Holm. Michael has more than 10 years experience with acquisitions and carve out's in multiple countries.
Michaels start point in this podcast is that carve-out's are more complex than acquisitions and particularly so when it's a Private Equity buyer, because there is usually no target company to integrate into so everything must be done to ensure the carve out can 'stand on it's own two feet'
Michael also points out that sellers will usually prepare the carve out in financial and legal terms, but it's the myriad of operational details that guarantee the route to success.
As you listen to Michael talk about his experiences, you will recognise that there is no area of a carve-out that isn't impacted in one way or another and that in some cases the carve-out business needs to be fully functional and operating smoothly just 24 hours from deal close.
