antergy

n. (from analogy with common synergy; from Oligopoly Watch via Terry Frazier)

  1. The separation of a synergistic composite.

The Time-Warner proxy rebels led by Carl Icahn have announced they want the company split even further, into four new firms, namely Time-Warner Cable, motion pictures and TV networks, magazine publishing, and AOL. As with Viacom, the idea is to “release” a lot of pent-up value, the very opposite of synergy, namely antergy. —Oligopoly Watch
