ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a statement from Time Warner Inc. President and Chief Operating Officer Jeff Bewkes that splitting up the media giant would not increase value. According to Bewkes, there are two reasons to separate -- either to optimize the capital structure to boost returns or to get investor pools that are in different risk profiles matched up to different businesses. He also added some insights to another deal that corporate raider Car Icahn has criticized.
