"8 New Views on Carve-Outs": #1: The future of a carve-out entity does matter to the seller

After a carve-out, the first reaction of the former ParentCo is often to go back to business as usual and discard any thought about the NewCo's destiny. However, given the state of our highly interconnected world, it has never been more dangerous to burn bridges. Bridges such as linked reputation, joint customers, shared brands, continued warranties and legal obligations, to name just a few of those which often cannot simply been torn off. Bridges, which are demolished although keeping them up, would save synergies and create future business for both, such as cooperations in e.g. R&D or Sales, cross-selling, joint preproduction etc.  

Want to find out more? I invite you to open up the first page of our “8 New Views on Carve-Outs” whitepaper by Eight Advisory, clearing up old prejudices and half-truths about carve-outs here: "8 New Views on Carve-Outs"
