Hostile Take-Over Investing

hostile take over investing special research report Photo by
Given corporate Boards remaining relentless in cash maximization policies, alongside reluctance to spend without a confident payback period, the obvious outlet is stepped-up acquisitions. Given a strategic free cash flow-based acquisition, firms could put themselves in a position of stepping up their return on invested capital, given the very low cost of debt that might need to be raised to fund the purchase. A well-priced and timed acquisition can significantly add to shareholder value, while of course, an ill-priced, ill-executed  and poor candidate would severely destroy value. Better managed firms take advantage of weak ...
Bill O'Rafferty's daily info of importance | Real Estate Investing ...
I have received many emails from folks at the EDGE and a couple questions have repeated themselves. One fellow DGer suggested it would be nice to see one bite of info from me every day rather than the smorgasbord laid out Sunday. (I thought that was a great description) I am not sure I can come up with something that would be of interest, but I will give it a try for a few days and if it is helpful, I will keep doing it and if not, I will save the space in the DG computer server. She suggested a daily info of importance journal and I will try that title. Q: A question asked a number of times is what was my recipe for getting ... market research, surveys and trends

Bid May Spark Battle Royale for Anheuser-Busch - DealBook Blog ...
But InBev’s bid to take control of Anheuser-Busch, which has been led by the Anheuser and Busch families for 148 years, could get nasty. The St. Louis-based company, led by a scion of the Busch family, August A. Busch IV, has signaled that it will fight a takeover. In recent weeks, in anticipation of InBev’s bid, privately called Project Aluminum, Anheuser-Busch has hired an army of bankers, lawyers and other advisers to help it mount a defense, The New York Times reported. The battle may stir a national debate filled with patriotic fervor over a company ingrained in the American consciousness. Anheuser-Busch spends ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Airline Pension Updates
continue to complicate the company’s relations with the airline’s 4,500 pilots. However, the two sides joined December 11 in a federal lawsuit to gain approval of the airline’s restructured benefit plan. The action pits some longer-serving pilots against pilots with shorter service, and involves how benefits are allocated and the terms under which future benefits can be earned. Northwest took the option of freezing plans instead of terminating them, and claims it was thereby able to preserve over $2 billion in pension benefits. Shorter-service pilots claim they are being short-changed and have contested ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Blame Games
The U.S. economy is limping along. The job market is in rotten shape, and business investment is hitting historic lows. And, if you’re looking for a culprit for this dismal state of affairs, many businesspeople would be happy to point you to the White House. Companies aren’t hiring or investing, businessmen say, because the combination of Barack Obama’s anti-corporate attitude and a blizzard of new regulations and proposed taxes has created what Ivan Seidenberg, the C.E.O. of Verizon, calls “an increasingly hostile environment for investment and job creation.” In a recent Newsweek column, Fareed ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Cramer's Mad Money - Takeovers and Takeunders (7/22/10)
Takeovers are a great way to make money. Sometimes it pays to get in fast and then take the money and run, but some acquisitions are better to hold for the longer term. Qwest ( Q ) is a high-yielding telco name that has risen 16% since March, but since it received a takeover bid, Qwest's upside is capped, and at $5.64, it probably will not go higher than $5.91, when the deal closes in 2011 -- a long time to wait for a stock to rise just 27 cents. Cramer suggests selling Qwest and investing a solid telco like AT&T ( T ), which reported strong earnings, or Vodafone ( VOD ), for its high yield and impressive growth. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Investment Climate Statement -- U.S. Commercial Service France
Ensuring that France's investment climate is attractive to foreign investors is a stated priority for the French government, which sees foreign investment as a way to create jobs and stimulate growth.  Past debate in France over “economic patriotism” has caused some observers to question the depth of this commitment. Nevertheless, investment regulations are simple, and a range of financial incentives for foreign investors are available. A public and commercial establishment, the French Agency for International Investment (Agence Francaise pour les Investissements Internationaux – AFII) integrates all ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
The Civilized Hostile Takeover: New Breed of Wolf at Corporate Door
Donald C. Cambre, chairman of Newmont Mining Corp., was prepared for the looming takeover battle. Newmont had survived an assault once before, at the height of the 1980s hostile takeover frenzy, fending off one of the most aggressive corporate raiders, none other than the Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens. And now Cambre had at his side Steven McArthur Heller of Goldman, Sachs & Co., the investment bank that has long portrayed itself as the defense adviser of choice for targets of hostile bids. But this was the 1990s, the era of globalization and finding the right business "fit." Corporate America's view of hostile takeovers ...

If the bid is accepted by the board of directors, you will be forced to sell your shares. In that these shares are now selling for about 1/2 of a cent, yours are worth $495 at the current market.

I don't believe it will come to pass - it's horribly reminiscent of the beginning of Atlas Shrugged which I've always written off as absurdly fantastic but it seems I was wrong perhaps... If you start to 'protect' private companies like this you will soon run into horrible problems. Who defines strategic? Will you manipulate the rules to drive the price up? Are ministers allowed to hold private investments in strategic businesses? Will the Unions just keep making a fuss to protect their positions (anyone remember Leyland?). Who knows best how to run a business Government or real business people? ...
