Edgewater Capital Partners Discusses Carve-Outs in IHS Chemical Week Webcast

Edgewater Capital Partners and Grace Matthews participated in IHS Chemical Week webcast on creating value through corporate carve-outs

Edgewater Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on investing in lower and middle-market performance materials businesses, and Grace Matthews, a middle-market investment bank providing merger, acquisition and corporate finance advisory services for chemical companies, participated in the IHS Chemical Week webcast on creating value through corporate carve-outs that was held on August 2, 2016.

The webcast focused on how chemical companies can drive value from the complex process of carving out a business through an M&A transaction.  Both buyers and sellers face unique challenges with carve-out transactions which are becoming more common in the chemical industry. The assets being sold often do not have dedicated financial statements, making valuation difficult. Sellers may have to determine, in granular detail, exactly which assets to include in a transaction. Buyers need to develop a clear understanding of what they’re buying and what they may need to provide themselves to run the business.

Ryan Meany, Managing Partner at Edgewater Capital Partners, and Kevin Yttre and Andy Hinz, Managing Directors at Grace Matthews, shared insights on how to ensure success for these complex transactions.
