16:05 EDTSYMCSymantec plans to separate into two public companies
Symantec announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate the company into two, independent publicly traded companies: one business focused on security and one business focused on information management. The transaction is intended to take the form of a tax-free distribution to Symantec shareholders of 100% of the IM business in a new, independent, publicly traded stock. The expected stock distribution ratio will be determined at a future date. The company expects to complete the spinoff by the end of December 2015. The company expects to incur separation and restructuring charges through the completion of the transaction as it works to separate the two businesses. "Symantecís decision to pursue a separation follows an extensive business review of the companyís strategy and operational structure. Creating two standalone businesses will allow each entity to maximize its respective growth opportunities and drive greater shareholder value," the company stated. The security business generated revenue of $4.2B in FY14. The IM business generated revenue of $2.5B in FY14. Michael Brown will be the President and CEO of Symantec and Thomas Seifert will continue to serve as CFO. John Gannon will be General Manager of the new information management business and Don Rath will be its acting CFO.
