A road map for portfolio growth

Client Results Story

PortfolioCo, a $2.5 billion multinational conglomerate, wanted an integrated strategy for its portfolio of companies. 

Executives needed to articulate a new corporate vision to maximize shareholder value. They were particularly concerned that one division was responsible for a disproportionately large portion of the profits and felt that it was critical that they develop the seven underperforming businesses in the company's portfolio. 

PortfolioCo asked Bain to help develop a new corporate vision to achieve overall growth and reverse the decline in the company's stock price. 

Next Approach

Bain used a three-year framework to guide the work and frame the clients' thinking around core issues.


Next Recommendations

Bain recommended three possible options, each of which articulated a new corporate vision. PortfolioCo selected Option 3.


Next Results

The market enthusiastically endorsed PortfolioCo's new corporate vision, sending its share price to new highs.
