Summary

What is a Spin-Off? Meaning.

A Spin-Off is a form of corporate divestiture, whereby a subsidiary, division or strategic business unit becomes an independent company. Normally, shares in the new organizational entity are distributed in the form of a special stock dividend to the shareholders of the parent company on a pro rata basis. However see Leveraged Buy-Out.


A frequent reason for considering a Spin-Off is that a product developed by the R&D department that does not fit in the Core Competence of the corporation, or to streamline the parent organization. A Spin-Off can also be advantageous from a strategic point of view in that two new companies can each focus on their core business. Also, from a financial point of view, the two firms may be worth more than the sum of them.
