One of the most obvious reasons is that investors might perceive that the
company is massively reducing its expenses, thereby enhancing its net
worth and future prospects.

Of course massive layoffs alone won't assure greater success, but if
investors perceive that the company was oversized, then the downsizing
will be seen as right-sizing.

Perception is reality.
