Removing the end of a string

This seems like it should be a simple process, but I'm failing to find a good solution. 

 

I have a string that is:
Company Name - Report name

I just want to use Company Name in my flow

 

I can use the Compose function with

split(variables('varSubject'),' - ')
 
to get an array with
"Company Name"
"Report Name"
 
Now how do I use just "Company Name" as a variable moving forward?

You can manually access the value by using the first() function around the array that is produced.

first(split(variables('varSubject'),' - '))
