Aon’s core business strengthening initiatives, efficient capital deployment, strong cash flow position and cost savings flowing out from its restructuring programs are commendable. Strong merger and acquisition activities, divestitures and restructuring initiatives position the company favorably to generate long-term growth. However, the company remains exposed to heavy debt burden and associated interest expenses that are causing borrowing costs and financial risk to increase. Stiff competition, ongoing legal hassles and foreign currency fluctuations remain major headwinds. Followed by second quarter earnings miss, the company has witnessed a decline in full year 2016 earnings estimates to $6.53 per share from $ 6.57 per share over the past 60 days. Also earnings estimates for full year 2017 have declined to $7.1 per share from $7.32 per share over the same time frame.
