A Fortune 500 investment and insurance company, under pressure from an activist investor, designed a strategy to improve financial returns by divesting multiple business units in an accelerated timeframe. IT was essential to successfully executing the strategy, as business units relied on a tightly integrated IT infrastructure. A&M was engaged to provide leadership and IT carve-out expertise to plan and execute separation of more than 300 dedicated or shared systems, supporting infrastructure and data, and end-user computing for more than 2,400 employees. A&M assisted with preparation of transition service agreements (TSAs) and wind-down plans to support sale of business units to three independent buyers in transactions totaling more than $900 million. The client successfully executed one of the most complex series of divestitures in the financial services industry over a period of nine months.
