A NASDAQ company was re-positioning itself from a consumer electronics distributor to become a technology service provider in China; and the brief was to develop a corporate development strategy and plan.
This 3 month assignment was undertaken in a matrix environment with multiple inputs from the CEO, divisional GMs, Group FC and in-house counsel. At the end of the assignment, we presented a corporate development plan to re-align the company over the next 18 months on these fronts:
Legal structure & financial health
Value chain activities
Capital market positioning & perception
Internal processes & organizational structure
Equity story & investor relations.
The corporate plan was subsequently approved by the board of directors.
