There are a number of reasons that might drive a company to take a look at a corporate spin off. It might be to focus on a particular business need. It may be purely to raise revenue -- those assets that are currently part of one corporation being split and actually raising the value of the corporations.

It is critical to have an end-to-end solution for the spin-off process to mitigate risk and to make sure all your entities are in corporate compliance.

Multiple Stages in the Spin-Off Process.

There are a number of different stages involved in a spin-off process. These include -

  • Planning or scoping of how that spin off will take place
  • Preparation
  • Execution
  • Post-execution or wrap-up stage when that spin off is complete

Internal and External Compliance Challenges

There are a number of internal and external compliance challenges that might occur during a corporate spin off. Examples include Secretary of State requirements, federal and regulatory filings, and obtaining board approval.

Importance of Tracking Deadlines

Typically for a spin off there will be a number of deadlines that have to be tracked. Many companies will develop either a step or a calendar plan.

Missed deadlines might put the corporation at risk by having it fall out of compliance.
