The executive situations in which corporate leaders around the world find themselves are becoming increasingly complex. It is not only important to adhere to the internal and external framework, to unit all decision-makers or to play out every singe possible alternative strategy. Primarily, it is important to fulfil the defined corporate strategy and to achieve the pivotal goal for the company of securing its capital base. As long as the capital base is fine, the company is healthy. However, simply the term ?equity capital? starts to pose difficult questions. Depending on the items that are included in the equity position, there will be changes in the balance sheet, the levied taxes and not least the criteria used by rating agencies, which in turn may lead to economic burdens.
Therefore, the main purpose of equity interest is to increase the commercial equity capital, to strengthen the strategic core business fields and to achieve a sustained contribution to the earnings contribution. In order to achieve this goal, it is important to ensure optimum management of the equity interests: When to offload unsuitable investments; how to reduce risky assets and the risk capital; how to identify undisclosed reserves and profitable investments and how are the complex corporate structures arranged simply and rendered transparent?
