As markets and businesses evolve, many owners and business managers find that adjustments need to be made. Often this can involve selling all or part of a business that no longer performs to its potential, or no longer fits the strategic vision. Such disposals are commonplace, and a sign of strong management and active ownership.
Non-core assets develop in many contexts and are common across the CIS. These could be non-performing loan portfolios, branch networks, or entire subsidiaries of financial institutions, for example, or real estate portfolios in corporate groups, or parts of conglomerate businesses that have evolved over time and now need to be rationalised.
