Strategic Divestment Management Gaining Popularity

on November 24, 2014

The year 2014, which is already drawing to an end, was marked by M&A. Headlines were filled with news not only about big mergers-think of General Electric and Alstom or O2 and E-Plus-, but also about divestments. Philips separated from its traditional Lighting & Consumer Electronics division, Ebay said goodbye to Paypal, and HP recently announced to split up into two businesses, one for PCs and printers and the other for corporate hardware and services. Investors reacted positively to these decisions pushing up the stock prices of the companies. Strategic divestment management, according to the findings of two recent studies conducted by the consulting firms Boston Consulting Group and EY, is gaining in popularity both with CEOs and investors.
