Hello Jim,
As it has been hinted that retrenchment may be a question I've been considering the oil and gas industry and Shell.
However I'm worried that I might be tying myself up in knots as the following passage demonstrates:

Retrenchment.The actions of a company to refocus its ambitions for aperiod of time and to concentrate on its core profit centres. Often reducingspeculative investments, although paradoxically this can lead to a flurry of integrationswhen shareholders become more open to mergers and takeovers in the hope toconsolidate market share and take advantage of available synergies when rivalsare weakened. An example of this would be the £35bn take-over of BG by Shellwhich went ahead despite a background of tumbling oil and gas prices, massivelyreduced investments in oil exploration and in the region of 10,000redundancies.
Shell hope to both sell assets worth £30bn to recover their short term costsand find synergies of up to £4.5bn. Overall the company hopes to consolidate itsbusiness through the acquisition of BG whilst carrying out a retrenchment strategyby reducing capital spending.ira���/[))
