DuPont sees more reasons to put their assets in one roof. This is because they found out that they have the advantage on the competition if they do so.
They tested it when they worked with their five out of seven businesses all at once. The results shared positive revenue for the company. The numbers were even better than what the company and the market expected of them.
They will have to continue this strategy until it may no longer be useful or something better comes up. The idea that they will have to separate their businesses came from Nelson Peltz, one of their investors. He suggested that DuPont could gain if its agriculture, biosciences, health, and nutrition division are away from their more materialistic products.
On the one hand, the company remains as is because they see more flexibility with this set-up. They are looking at slow growths in some of the aspects of the business, specifically in agriculture. It was recently recorded that it met a total of four percent decrease in its overall statistics. They may have a harder time picking things up if they separate it from the rest of the group. Today’s set-up is just right to balance things out.
