Facing mounting pressure from restive investors seeking a breakup of the company, get the stock price up by focusing on high-growth businesses that bring a higher return to shareholders.

Baseline Goals:

  • Further leverage strategies such as Lean Six Sigma to boost net earnings per share growth to 10% to 13% for 2007, versus a 2% increase in net earnings per share for first quarter 2007.
  • Use the Internet to boost digital ad revenue at NBC Universal to $1 billion by 2009, from $200 million in 2006.
  • Create new products and technologies, such as power-efficient devices and wind turbines, to increase "eco-imagination" revenue to $20 billion by 2010, from $6 billion in 2006.
