Abstract

Contends that a continuous process of value‐destruction lurks in many diversified corporates, causing the HQ to depress the performance of subsidiaries, invisibly and inevitably. Cites evidence from research to argue that many big US and UK companies are ripe for demerger. Sums up, that for success and shareholder returns, it is best to be simple, focused, profitable and large.
