How Can Divesting Fuel Your Future Growth?

A record 87 percent of companies are planning to divest in the next two years. When is the right time to act, and what can be done to maximise the outcome? This Report from EY provides suggestions.

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.
  • Most sellers think the price gap between buyer and seller expectations is between 11% and 20%.
