How Can Divesting Fuel Your Future Growth?

Key points include
  • A record number (87%) of companies are planning to divest in the next two years, a strikingly higher number than the 43% that said the same in EY's 2017 study.
  • Comapnies that conduct portfolio reviews annually are twice as likely to exceed performance expectations, however, many businesses are at risk of acting too slowly.
  • Most companies (78%) prioritized securing the best price over speed of execution in their most recent divestment.
