  • Innovation, information and analytics drive divestment success - EY - Global
    themselves away from the public glare and quarterly reporting pressures The third option of course is to divest sluggish businesses to focus on more attractive growth opportunities All three alternatives will result in divestment and therefore each will require top notch divestment processes and decision making The discrepancy in the level of preparedness for activists indicates there may be a disconnect between what technology companies are doing to prepare and what needs to be done to be highly effective in fending off an activist threat Q How prepared is your business for shareholder activism Addressing the activist challenge effectively starts with management buy in recognizing and adopting the mind set that portfolio review and defending against activists are a priority From there companies can work to implement a cohesive process for defensive maneuvering such as establishing a schedule and structure for regular portfolio reviews Focus on innovation and valuation Pressure from shareholders is reflected in the technology industry responses of our Global Corporate Divestment Study Valuation consideration was the most important trend in motivating technology companies to consider a divestment mentioned as first or second choice by 60 This was closely followed by rapid change and innovation in the industry cited first or second by 58 of technology executives However our study demonstrates that too many technology companies are taking a reactive rather than proactive stance to making divestments Half 51 said that their most recent divestment was triggered by opportunistic factors Q Which key technology sector trends have motivated you to consider a divestment Prioritize portfolio reviews to unlock value Portfolio reviews need to move up the list of priorities if technology companies are to keep pace with rapid change and are to improve valuations by divesting underperforming and non core units before those businesses become more of a liability than an asset However many companies face two key challenges by considering portfolio reviews less important than other business activities First companies are not reviewing their portfolios frequently enough to make timely decisions Half of technology company executives said they conducted their reviews annually while just 7 did so on a quarterly basis In our results across sectors we found that those conducting reviews on a quarterly basis had a much higher success rate in their divestments than those who reviewed less frequently Q What key challenges do you face in implementing findings from portfolio reviews Access more granular data Effective portfolio review processes rely on the right information being available and the right tools being used to analyze vast volumes of data Yet over three quarters 79 of technology respondents said that poor data made it difficult for them to use analytics effectively in divestment decision making This ties in with the finding that two thirds of technology respondents had access to only segment level information generally more than 20 of revenue when seeking to make divestment decisions rather than business unit or sub business unit data Our findings suggest that many technology companies lack sufficient granularity in
