We will only get involved if we can add value to an existing business. Our judgement is based on our detailed analysis and research, and our view most often is different from the views of the existing management team and those of the bidders. The five ways we look to create value in our portfolio businesses are :
- Transforming Strategy;
- Strengthening Management;
- Developing through investments (capital expenditure);
- Acquiring and Merging companies and
- Lowering cost of capital.
