Consumer Bank Value Enhancement

Bank Divestiture


This Spanish Consumer Bank owner by a Global Financial Institution had been losing money since acquisition and management wanted to ascertain a clear direction to profitability or to enhance sale value.


A complete review of the business was needed to determine the potential of the business

  • Conduct review of Bank against peer group and analyze potential for moving to profitability.
  • Lay out strategy for implementation based on review results.
  • Aggressively move to strategy implementation regardless of prior inside view.


Analysis and peer group review demonstrated a significant lack of distribution capability vs competitors. Profitability would require significant investment with unsure results, therefore a sale recommendation resulted.

LoBue re-engineered all Bank functions reducing direct operating expenses over 30% and improving sale results by a multiple of prior expectation.
