Corus: muddled thinking

When Corus was formed in 1999, it hoped to grow by diversifying from steel - but a corporate rethink has overturned these plans. Not only is the firm now spinning off its non-steel businesses, it's merging with Brazil's CSN, thereby guaranteeing ore supplies.

Its plans stand in contrast to the global trend of large universal banks exiting, dividing or reducing their asset management businesses. While the argument for retention is not without merit, there is unlikely to be any let-up in the trend away from asset managers any time soon.

Heineken: has successfully offset declining sales volumes but must now explore new strategies

An expected drop in revenues for Heineken has been more than canceled out through cost-cutting measures and a shrewd pricing strategy.
