Our divestiture advice assists institutional and multinational companies in selling non-strategic divisions or businesses. We are the most active M&A advisory firm in Mexico and know the Mexican companies, their needs, and the changes in different sectors.

 

RIóN manages and executes the entire divestiture-process, according to an agreed timeline, and delivers clear, actionable advice.

We are specialists in Mexican companies and can identify what value the assets would add to potential targets’ business models. More than 500 families and companies in all sectors have trusted us with determining valuations.

Being the most active M&A advisory firm in Mexico, we constantly know where the deals are happening, who the real decision-makers are, who is buying and with which motivation. Our sales materials showcase our client’s assets to resonate with the needs and objectives of potential targets, provide clear propositions and a clear investment thesis; they allow us to focus on the transaction that really has a chance of succeeding and getting closed.

An example from the real life

Patheon Inc., a multinational company focused on contract drug development and manufacturing services for the pharmaceutical industry, decided to divest its Mexican operations. Operating under the Gelcaps name, the Mexican entity was primarily focused on manufacturing softgel products for the Latin American market, sold under local brands, a business model which was not compatible with Patheon’s. Having acquired the Gelcaps business as a result of larger acquisition, Patheon engaged RIóN to assist them in its divestiture process.

RIóN developed the list of potential buyers, based on our knowledge of the individual business models and potential synergies with the Gelcaps business, and conducted a competitive auction process with tight deadlines. Within Patheon’s stipulated timeframe we were able to successfully sell the Gelcaps business at a value above initial expectations.
