Case Study: Assessing growth potential and divestment options across business portfolio

Case Study header


The board of a leading learning services organization needed to understand the strategic potential of each of the businesses in its portfolio.  They needed to assess potential divestment options arising from inbound inquiries.


BP assessed the overall economics of the three businesses in the client’s portfolio.  BP outlined competitive landscapes and analyzed go-to-market models.  This analysis included cost of acquisition, revenue generation history and business repeatability by client.  BP then defined and evaluated potential divestment options.


The client implemented BP’s recommendation to divest the low-growth business in its portfolio to a strategic investor.  With BP’s help, the client refocused the go-to-market strategy of the retained high-growth tech business.


“The Bulger Partners team has been super-insightful and their work has really helped us understand the strategic options for our businesses”– Company CEO
