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!

Media bar stories about Private Equity (or Fairy Tales about capitalism)!


Bookmark and Share

GOOD:  Moody’s data shows positive information about Private Equity deals!

BAD: Private Equity Groups (PEGs) do liquidate companies!

UGLY:  Why is the media telling fairy tales about private equity as evil?

BOTTOMLINE: Capital / Private Equity is good thing!

Moody’s data shows that private equity-owned companies are much less likely to be liquidated when the going gets tough. It turns out that private equity does more to save the jobs of workers at struggling companies than other types of owners do.

HUMOR: ILVTOFU (or WTF with regulators)


Bookmark and Share

(Reuters) – When Whitney Calk sought a personalized license plate from a Tennessee state agency to tout her vegetarian ideals, she was annoyed when she was told no. Turns out the letters ILVTOFU can be construed to mean more than enjoying bean curd.

“When I see T-O-F-U, I see tofu,” says Calk, who requested the so-called vanity plate from the Tennessee Department of Revenue last September.

Jumpstart Our Business or is it torture?


Bookmark and Share

NEW YORK, Jun 06, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The Hedge Fund Association, an international organization that represents hedge funds, service providers and investors, said liberalized advertising and solicitations rules contained in the new Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act would help hedge funds raise assets and “encourage emerging managers to continue to enter the industry.” The HFA also asked the SEC for clearer rules to verify that potential investors are indeed accredited as a way to “add further stability to the industry.”

Do you agree or not that strong leaders can and should apologizie!

or should they say I lead and you follow?

 Forbes.com (6/05/2012) Courageous Leaders Don’t Make Excuses…They Apologize

Apologizing freely requires a good deal of courage.  It’s not comfortable for any of us to admit an error, or to acknowledge that something we’ve done has caused others harm or inconvenience. So when someone truly apologizes, we know he or she is putting honesty and honor above personal comfort or self-protection.  It’s inspiring, and it feels brave.

Locked up offshore (or illiquid “zombie” hedge funds )!


At the worst of the market turmoil in late 2008, an estimated $175 billion of capital was locked up in illiquid hedge funds, according to Hedge Fund Review. It is estimated that some $50 billion to $60 billion remains locked up in zombie funds, out of the reach of investors.

Advertising does not make me invest! I read returns and risk!


In a comment letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission last week, the ICI urged regulators to impose restrictions on private fund advertising that are at least as extensive as those for mutual funds. The group also suggested a ban on advertising hedge funds’ performance until rules are established governing how to calculate the returns, according to the letter, which is posted on the ICI’s website.

Not all fund companies share the ICI’s view. BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager with $3.68 trillion in assets, supports the removal of the ban on general advertising, according to a letter the firm sent to the SEC last month.
