How We Help
Drawing on our deep capital markets, corporate finance and communications expertise, we identify and assess operational gaps and provide guidance and support to form a sustainable foundation for operational success following an initial public offering (“IPO”). Our IPO planning begins with a detailed, data-driven assessment of company-wide strategic, organizational and operational readiness. Our experienced professionals can quickly analyze performance and identify where operational gaps exist in people, processes and technology. We help initiate a project management office to keep the transaction on track. In addition, we help accounting and finance, treasury, legal, tax and internal audit identify and adopt challenging public company requirements. We also help the client stand up to finance and accounting functions so the entity can operate as a standalone public company while keeping compliant with Sarbanes-Oxley and SEC reporting requirements.
FTI Consulting advises finance and accounting executives on complex accounting issues, risk and regulatory challenges, and accounting productivity and financial reporting.

Complex carve-out transactions require structured, comprehensive plans and disciplined execution. Our team combines extensive divestiture expertise with industry-specific, financial and operational experience to provide integrated carve-out services for companies and investors. We help prevent due diligence surprises that could reduce value, and we enable a business to minimize post-close purchase price adjustments. By using our deep knowledge of the issues and leading practices, we help stand up SpinCo on its own. Also, we equip prospective sellers with a buyer’s view of the carve-out, providing insights on shared service capabilities, cost allocations, potential separation complexities and stranded costs.
