Divestment refers to the transfer of assets under court orders from a particular company to another owner through a spin-off or a traditional sale of shares. Companies who do this usually want to do a merger with another company. The reason why the court is behind this transaction is to prevent a monopoly or put consumer interest at risk before the merger.
