The Barton Partnership was engaged by a global B2B services company to create and execute a business unit carve-out plan. The assignment required a broad range of commercial and financial skills to create a new legal entity that was self-sustaining, profitable, and attractive to investors.
Following a strategic review, our client concluded that a business unit delivering communications services should be carved out in readiness for sale as it was unprofitable.
Scope & Benefits
The scope of our work comprised:
Legal and financial entity carve-out and build
Organisation design, management and governance build
Integrating the operating model with the ESG agenda
Realising £5m of cost savings
A contract review to increase profitability and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements to achieve annualised benefits of £1m
Systems separation and migration to the cloud
Systems modernisation plan
Cyber improvement plan
Following the carve-out, the business unit now remains a profitable part of the group.
