How we work with corporate development officers

Today, the Corporate Development Officer (CDO) plays an increasingly vital role in developing strategy and growth initiatives at both the corporate and business-unit levels.

Globally, CDOs are becoming more influential, providing strategic advice to their boards, actively managing portfolios, divesting non-core assets and pursuing acquisitions to transform their market position.

We can help you understand global megatrends, such as digital transformation, harness the possibilities of innovations like big data analytics and meet the latest regulatory and tax requirements for deals.


Divestiture Advisory Services

How we work with clients

Leading companies consider divestments as fundamental to their business strategy – they focus on selling assets in the same rigorous way they focus on acquisitions. These companies often carve out or spin off a business unit and redeploy capital raised to strengthen their core business and reinvest in high-growth areas.

Family-owned companies may sell their business to comfortably fund retirement, to support future generations or to find a partner who will protect the legacy of the business. And middle-market businesses and private equity firms also sell entire companies to monetize their investment.

Our goal is to help clients realize value, accelerate close and minimize business disruptions. We help clients reach their strategic goals, optimize their portfolio, evaluate divestiture risks and rewards and prepare them to execute the transaction.

Our services span the transaction life cycle:

  • Strategy/portfolio management
  • Equity story development and delivery

Each restructuring scenario calls for different professional skills, and we offer a broad range of services that are tailored to your individual situation to help you evaluate opportunities, put together the most effective restructuring plan, improve transactions and achieve your strategic goals.

Our restructuring services include:

  • Corporate restructuring:
    We help companies and investors improve their total expected return in times of uncertainty and deteriorating performance and growth. We support you in managing work-out or turn-around processes and in allocating capital and investment — evaluating your business plans objectively. We also devise strategies to address potential covenant breaches, negotiating with stakeholders and complying with insolvency and other requirements.
  • Capital markets:

A sector in disruption

Health care around the globe is embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime transformation — the move to “Health 2.0,” the consumer-centric, outcomes-driven, prevention-focused future of health care.

There are two catalysts for this shift. First, with aging populations and emerging market growth, chronic disease is becoming a global epidemic and driving health care cost inflation to unsustainable levels. To tame costs, payers and governments are realigning incentives around value and outcomes.

At the same time, health is finally entering the digital age — unlocking information, empowering patients, enabling real-time analytics and bringing much-needed focus on prevention. Yet, just as technology creates opportunities for health care organizations, it also presents threats as new entrants disrupt the competitive landscape.

These changes require patients, payers, providers, governments and life sciences companies — everyone within the health ecosystem — to think differently about health care as we know it. Collaborative approaches will be needed to create sustainable health care systems that deliver high quality care while being efficient and cost-effective.

How EY can help you

At EY, we’re playing our part. We work collaboratively with a wide range of organizations, from governmental departments of health and public sector service providers and payers, to health insurers and private sector providers.

Our global health practice works with organizations to manage costs and improve efficiency. We help deliver digital health solutions and use big data and analytics to improve health services management and, as a result, health outcomes. We collaborate to transform health care delivery, and we help develop new business models so that our clients can better compete in a rapidly changing world.

Our Health Reimagined initiative brings together our professionals from multiple sectors — health, life sciences, technology, telecommunications, consumer products and more — to develop cross-sector perspectives and solutions for Health 2.0.

Our diverse teams include former chief executives of departments of health, clinicians, provider executives, health strategy and policy advisers, and service and program managers. Across our network, we offer clients access to international panels of recognized experts in health, which facilitates innovation, decision-making and speed of execution.

We offer services to clients from across the health spectrum. From audit and assurance, to tax and regulatory compliance, to risk and internal audit, to IT advisory and cybersecurity, to strategy, we help organizations navigate an increasingly complex health landscape. In addition to these core services, we bring some of our best thinkers from across our service areas to help clients solve some of today’s most pressing issues.
