Companies’ transformation track records are mixed. Top performers unlock value quickly by focusing on changes that will improve profit margins and valuation multiples.
A sharp value creation strategy not only ensures that a great business is a great stock—but it also helps deter activist attacks. A linear approach to strategy—first defining a business strategy, then developing a supporting financial strategy, and finally selling that package to investors—may seem logical, but it’s often not optimal.
Ensuring that the whole business portfolio is worth more than the sum of its parts takes a clear corporate vision, a consistent parenting approach, smart capital allocation, and a compelling investor story.
Delivering value-creating growth requires not only a sharp understanding of how the basis of competition is shifting but also the creativity to envision your organization’s unique path to win—and the resourcing and discipline to realize your vision.
Value Creation Strategy and Shareholder Activism Defense
Creating peer-beating value is a universal aspiration. The best companies maximize their results by taking an iterative approach to shaping corporate, business, financial, and investor strategies. And strong, sustained value creation is the best defense against the rising tide of activism.
M&A, Transactions, and Post-Merger Integration
Bringing a strategy to life—and accelerating value creation—often requires new skills, expanded market access, and stopping some things while starting others. Transactions are a key lever, but more than half of deals destroy value. What does it take to unlock potential?
