Feb 04th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Electrocomponents (ECM.L, LSE:ECM, LON:ECM) entitled "Integration Potholes". In summary, the report says:
Electro’s strategy aims to change it from a company with operations in many countries to a company with a unified global operation. The road from A to B is clearly full of potholes and some of them are deep. However, the experience in Europe justifies management’s persistence in its course of action. The outcome looks attractive and investors should support this route.
