NIRI Chicago - A Tornado of Activity: Did Chicago Spinoffs Enhance Value? – March 5, 2014
Chicago’s public companies have had more than their fair share of spinoffs in recent years. Abbott’s spinoff of Hospira and AbbVie; Kraft into Kraft Foods and Mondelez; Motorola into Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility; Fortune Brands into Beam and Fortune Brands Home & Security; Sara Lee, first with Hanes Brands several years ago and more recently with Hillshire Brands and D.E. Master Blenders 1753 N.V.
What circumstances prompted these companies to first accumulate these assets and then decide to split them up to better clarify and enhance shareholder value? How much did activist shareholders affect the boards and managements in their decisions? How did the managements and staffs get split up between companies? How did the companies communicate spinoffs to gain shareholder approval? Hear firsthand from participants in some of Chicago’s most notable transactions, as well as the financial experts who assess value on a continual basis.

NIRI Boston - Valuation is in the Eye of the Beholder – March 27, 2014
It can be argued that the IRO has one job and one job only: to make sure their company’s valuation appropriately reflects the issuer’s prospects for returns, and that everything an IRO does on a daily basis is executed with this ultimate goal in mind. But because investors seek out opportunities that align with their specific appetite for risk and complement their particular portfolio strategies, the valuation metrics they use to assess a stock will vary. As a result, it can be hard to agree on what objective metrics should be used to monitor progress and measure success.
Join us for a robust discussion with experts on corporate valuation including:
• Whether/how equity valuations have changed over the past few years?
• Whether/how valuation methodologies have changed over the same time period?
• Whether the most commonly used metrics represent the best measure of what a company is worth?
• How are investment decisions tied to corporate valuation analysis?
• How can the IRO add value in the valuation analysis process?
