HUMOR: Good MBO story, but we need more cat photos with the news!


Bookmark and Share

Quest Software’s directors have come up with a canny plan to squeeze more money out of a buyout offer backed by Chief Executive Vincent Smith. They were put on the defensive in March when Smith, who owns a third of the enterprise software company, teamed up with private equity shop Insight Venture Partners for a lowball bid. But independent board members managed to level the playing field by offering Dell an option to acquire a 19.9 percent stake in the firm if Smith didn’t support its superior bid. That bagged shareholders a 12 percent bump in the purchase price. Read More:  http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/category/private-equity/

GOOD: More reporting on MBOs

BAD:  Is Reuters photo with the news funny?

UGLY: Photo of cat with the news! How about monkey squeezing baby cat (Tiger)?

BOTTOMELINE: Look forward to more MBO news and finding funny photos to go with the news!

Why did KKR invest in Solar Deal?


Please comment on your view of the deal. My view was KKR was shark on the deal and acquired assets at great price.

From FT.com at: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/b8161c02-b157-11e0-9444-00144feab49a.html

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts has teamed up with German insurance company Munich Re to acquire a stake in 42 solar power plants in Spain and Italy, underlining how some of the larger private equity groups are rushing into Europe’s renewable energy sector. The US private equity group said it had sided with Munich Re to buy a 49 per cent share in southern European photovoltaic power plants owned by Grupo T-Solar, one of the world’s biggest producers of such power by installed capacity.

If You Sell Your Startup, Don’t Be a Punk About it Afterward


“I always say that when somebody offers to buy your business — and they actually follow through and do it — it’s one of the most flattering things that can happen to you as an entrepreneur, irrespective of what happens after they buy the business,” he said.
