Riveron manages carve-out and IPO readiness for new company
A €30 billion German cement and aggregates company chose to divest its non-core building products business line, Lehigh Hanson. The Company engaged Riveron to assist with a dual-track divestiture, including carve-out and conversion from IFRS to US GAAP, subsequent public registration and liaison of the dual-track sale process for the Company’s negotiations with private equity investors. We managed the separation strategy to stand up the carved-out entity, assisted with SOX readiness, provided technical guidance, and produced SEC-compliant financial statements. Ultimately, Riveron publicly filed the Company’s registration statement with the SEC on an aggressive timeline and assisted with the sale of the Company at a favorable price.
