Samsung will consider splitting into two companies after troubled 2016

U.S. hedge fund Elliot Management recently proposed that Samsung Electronics should be split into two. The first would be a holding company for ownership purposes, and the second would be an operating company.

The fund, which currently owns 0.6 percent of Samsung, also wants the company to pay out $26 billion USD in a special dividend.

According to an anonymous source cited by Seoul Economic Daily, the firm will state it plans to consider a split during a shareholder announcement on Tuesday, November 28th.

According to the Next Web, Samsung Electronics has lost over $6.1 trillion won as a result of the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, which may have shareholders questioning the company’s leadership.
