Quote: “You not naive enough to believe we live in a democracy – buddy – its the free market” – the whole world have been believing in this bullshit from an old movie…. wow.
If someone had just shown this to Greenspan – he might not have been Greenspank now… But very straight and a real person (just shows that controle is beyond hard)- Quote: “I did not really get it”…see interview
PS. the real gaga was around last week when lost of big funds wnated the markets closed for 1-2 weeks – until stability would be around – but hey – no one asked for that after yesterdays US stocks 11% up…
A lot of people around me have quite stiff smiles these day because of the financial markets downturn. But its all so relative – when people talk about their losses. I have a meeting with a very nice guy from the bank tomorrow and just checked up on the potential of his option package ;)
Intersting – but a little designed article..
Today I structured one of the best deal I�ve ever done. And ts not only extremely potential in profis – IT A SOCIAL DEAL IN THE FINANCIAL WORLD. I met 3 guys trough a friend 7 months ago – and they are real scientists – but also very socially skilled. They have fumbled a bit and developed a lot – but been very very hornest. Today they (we) signed with a Swiss partner who will cover the company for the next 2 years – and move the guys down.. So why me so happy and proud: The deal was done via trust and handshake and everybody gave more then they promised – the scientists gave the new partner 2% extra shares just to show they where sirous – the Swiss dude just signed after skimming the termsheet.. UNREAL. Mark (Chief Practical Dealmaker at LundKenner) didnt even believe his own ears – no one was greedy – everyone was giving and humble. I LOVE IT – when there are no greedy asses bithing.
I was very fortunate to have dinner with the founders of Denmarks NUMBER ONE software succes ever (please comment if you think Im wrong). SaxoBank is is basicly a piece of financial trading software. These guys are brigth in the 10000 lumiere league.
The Iceladic Capital is slowly taking over a lot of Danish and British companies in very agressive and yet simple constructions. They simple use the leveraged buyot model (you pactically buy a company via taking loans in their own assets like buildings and cashflow) – but I dont understand how this TINY TINY nation can poduce such an agressive style and EXECUTE IT. Im VERY impressed with the execution: Our low cost Airline, Our ShoppingMalliant, Our Bank for B2B… all taken over over nigth – with no bullshit (yet) style – just pure execution.
And Im NOT NEGATIVE or DEPRESSED – nope – Im impressed and happy to see some young (pretty young) dudes taking a hit at the establishment – AND I DONT CARE IF IT WILL SURVIVE or IF ITS LONG LASTING – since most of these companies would have gone bankrupt any. I just like the approach and I think I know better then quite a lot of people that you have to shoot a lot to make a homerun ‘,)
I migth be a little jaloux (positivly – I use jalouxi as a driver) at the fact – that its not me being on board in these tranactions. Since buying a SUPERMALL WITH PRESENCE IN 5 CITIES – next to nothing – by selling the property is smart. Specially if you also own some of the largest fasions retailers in UK. I hope that these guys have capital reserves to keep up with the speed – and that they can make some exits to keep up.
NOTE: The common saying here in denmark – is that the whole Icelandic phenomenon is sponsered by Russian money and made by insider trading – but I dont buy into that. Well DENMARK is more or less Maersk and his boards and his network all over (could be called INSIDER AS WELL) – and Iceland is a very small country and that means means a small business network. For the Russian thing – well whats wrong with Russian money (well some are Oligark money made – in maybe suspicious mannors – and should be avaoided 100%) but I see no difference to American, Japanese or German money. I like that Rusia is taking off – and if the guys choose to buy a football clud in Chelsea or Invest via Iceland fine with me. very fine.
