Because rapidly changing conditions (either favorable or unfavorable) in one or more of a company's core businesses make it desirable to expand into other industries
Because the company has an imbalance of cash cow and cash hog businesses
Because there is attractive potential for transferring a portion of its portfolio of competitively potent resources and capabilities to other related or complementary businesses
