Asset Stripping

Revision as of 15:14, 16 December 2022 by User (talk | contribs)

Asset stripping is the practice of taking over a company in financial difficulties and selling each of its assets separately at a profit without regard for the company's future. For example, a purchasing company, such as a private equity firm, buys a company for $1 billion and sells off its real estate, intellectual property, equipment, etc. separately for $3 Billion, potentially making $2 Billion in profit.
