From the Back Cover:

Today's Most Popular, Powerful Tools for Creating Shareholder Value--How and Why They Work, and Which Will Work Best for You

The business world is just now beginning to regroup from its greatest merger wave in history. But after more than half of all acquisitions failed to enhance shareholder value, the "bigger is better" mantra has given way to new, leaner value-creation strategies--and to the increased use of subsidiary equity redeployments (SERs) to redeploy and gain access to value hidden in subsidiary operations.

Restructuring for Growth is the first comprehensive guide to creating value by redeploying the equity value of subsidiary operations and assets. It provides new insights on how virtually any organization can successfully leverage this equity in order to:

  • Create value for impatient shareholders
  • Increase focus
  • Use partnerships and alliances
  • Restructure balance sheets
  • Obtain cash from--and ensure the success of--non-core operations

In the broad middle ground between complete ownership and total divestiture, SERs provide unmatched opportunities for both increasing corporate effectiveness and building shareholder value. Let Restructuring for Growth help you determine if, when, and why an SER may be effective for your organization, and provide you with innovative opportunities to build shareholder value and thrive in today's challenging business arena.

"Building the value of a subsidiary--and the parent--is a pressing concern for much of corporate America. Restructuring for Growth addresses the creation of shareholder value by companies through the redeployment of the equity of a wholly or partially owned subsidiary operation..."--From the Preface

Today's corporate world has been turned upside down. Many of the strategies employed in the past to create value for shareholders have had the opposite effect and are being unwound. As a result, impatient investors are demanding that companies employ new approaches to maximize all of their assets--and create value for investors.

Restructuring for Growth is the first book to take a detailed look at subsidiary equity redeployments (SERs), which have proven remarkably successful at creating new value for both parent companies and their shareholders. This one-of-a-kind resource offers practical advice on creating value in today's turbulent private and public stock and merger markets. It details the goals, objectives, advantages, and challenges and lays out critical tax, legal, and accounting considerations of today's most widely-used and effective subsidiary equity redeployment (SER) strategies, including:

  • Spin-offs
  • Carve-outs
  • Partnerships with investors
  • Corporate alliances
  • Mergers

Incorporating need-to-know insights, this important work also contains numerous examples and cases for each strategy. It provides a behind-the-scenes look at how the strategies were structured and deployed, and a rare insider's access to the SER successes and failures of leading companies ranging from General Motors to Palm. Many of these cases are available from no other resource, and feature commentary from company executives on the firing line about the strategies they selected.

In Restructuring for Growth, Wall Street veteran John Michaelson provides unique and rarely shared insights into the inner workings of corporate finance and details the challenges of working with Wall Street. He gives you the information and confidence you need to select, deploy, and manage smart SER strategies--to meet the value creation demands of impatient investors, corporate management, and boards of directors.
