SEOUL Nov 29 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd
said on Tuesday it is reviewing options for its
optimal corporate structure including the possibility of
establishing a holding company amid growing calls for improved
transparency and governance.
Samsung, in a statement, said it is also considering the
potential benefits of listing its shares on other overseas
markets and hired advisers for a thorough review.
"The review does not indicate the management or the board's
intention one way or another," the company said, adding the
review process would take at least six months.
