Asset disposals and strategic acquisitions committee

Andrew Marshall
Asset Disposals and Strategic
Acquisitions Committee

The committee is exclusively focused on asset disposals as a key part of the Group's deleverage strategy. The purpose of the committee is to ensure that post-disposals, a core business remains that is able to provide end-to-end solutions and support our customers through their digital transformation journeys. Building a strong and optimal capital structure is extremely important in providing the Group a solid foundation before strategic acquisitions can be considered and executed. The desired end result remains a focused, efficient business capable of becoming the digital-transformation enabler for our customers.
