Check out the description - sounds exactly like IBD to me (it's not even cultural integration or strategy, they specifically mention due diligence, valuation, negotiations with bidders/targets on value, etc.)

"We assisted an industrial conglomerate in evaluating the benefits, structural formats and process alternatives of the potential divestiture of a large underperforming division. Our work involved sum-of-parts valuation, compilation of a Confidential Information memorandum, disposal process design, and negotiation support."
