Although it is business moves that will not affect short - term strategy of the Korean company, or phones that can buy tomorrow, it seems that arrive moments of changes in the structure of the electronics giant. ¿ Divide the company into two parts ? It could be a way to revalue, we are told from Reuters .
It is not a decision taken by the dome, the Lee family, rather it is a rumor that has long been in showbiz technology, and will have to confirm or deny tomorrow. The firm Elliot Management hedge fund - - has been lobbying to Samsung, ensuring and proposing that a division could really use your accounts, especially the department that is responsible for drawing phones .
It seems that the idea goes through separate the company into a holding company, which main function would manage the property of the companies actually operating in the market, which would be the other resulting part. Policy Samsung has a meeting to respond to these suggestions, which are supported by much of the shareholders tomorrow.
The reason for this has to do with giving independence and value to the jewel in the crown, mobile, who have had a good trip with the issue of batteries Note 7 . According to Samsung is now more media than painful in their accounts, the company continues strong market share, also in benefits.
According to the movement behind the proposal, Samsung is unnecessarily complex enterprise , mainly by growth so fast that it has had in recent years, in which different companies have become very important and should be able to be managed with greater autonomy. The recommendation is to simplify the structure with a holding above each major group company.
We have enough recent similar changes in Hewlett-Packard , who completed the division: on the one hand we were with Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, dedicated to business products and services. On the other hand, HP Inc., which business PCs, printers and end - user devices are included signature. Or what it is the same: we are part of end user and business user part.
