The Project

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.

The Opportunity

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.
