BUSINESS TERM: Sleeping Beauty

BUSINESS TERM: Sleeping Beauty

DEFINITION of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ in Finance:

A company that is considered prime for takeover, but has not yet been approached by an acquiring company. A company may be considered a sleeping beauty for a variety of reasons, including large cash reserves, undervalued real estate, undervalued share price, attractive assets or strong growth and earnings potential. A takeover, or acquisition, is typically characterized by the purchase of a smaller company by a larger firm. The acquiring company generally offers a cash price per share, thereby purchasing the target outright for its own shareholders.

In relation to mergers and acquisitions (M&A), a sleeping beauty is a company that is “sleeping;” that is, one that is ripe for takeover to achieve its full potential. A sleeping beauty might be a new company that has great potential but has not yet been noticed, or it could be an established company that has not been managed well, and is therefore not maximizing its potential. A sleeping beauty essentially lies in wait until a takeover occurs, at which point the company theoretically would be able to live up to its potential.

A CALL TO ACTION: JOIN THE AGIP MOVEMENT

A CALL TO ACTION: JOIN THE AGIP MOVEMENT

If you think the politics of your country needs to change – and I know many of you share this desire strongly – stop the paralysis analysis and do something. Join the AGIP movement and support your government. There is an unwritten rule in business that bad people chase away good people, and the reverse is also true.

We need a better future for our children and the next generation. The late Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore moved his country from a third world to a first world country in one generation . Lets do it !

WHAT IS AGIP:

AGIP (Any Government in Power) will be an entity of well respected, well-to-do and reputable business and civic leaders whose primary objective for existence will be to support any government in power.

AGIP will be interested in good governance, prosperity, and creating an enabling environment for investments and social development. Members will have interests to protect but these will be by and large interests that should align with the next generation.

WHO IS AGIP:
AGIP is a lobby group comprising a country’s finest men and women who have too much to lose if the government becomes dysfunctional.

This group’s sole purpose is to support government initiatives by providing a platform for strategic conversations between government and the private sector, including challenging policies and programs the same way shareholders would challenge management in the private sector.

Each country in Africa will endeavor to build up a minimum of one hundred thousand active AGIP members in and these should be well-meaning, enlightened and high-calibre members of society who are fed up with mediocrity and the cancer brought on by corruption and inexperienced leadership.

The Indian Real Estate Bubble

The housing bubble burst of US in the year 2008 took the entire global economy by storm, leading most of the nations into recession. The after effects of the burst are so adverse that the world still hasn’t recovered from the shocks of 2008. With the prices of real estate going down significantly in India in the recent past, the Indian real estate bubble that has been inflating for over a decade is heading towards a burst and has the potential to dwindle the entire economy and wreak havoc.
What is a real estate bubble?

An increase in the prices of the real estate which is primarily driven by either demand or speculation is followed by an increase in the supply. At this point, in order to profit from the increasing demand and rising prices, the speculators enter the market and put huge amount of money into the system. But since this kind of demand is unsustainable in the long run which either decreases or stagnates, having the same supply, leading to massive drop in prices. This is called as a burst in the bubble.

uanzishaji wa benki na hasara ya Sh milioni 500 iliyopatikana katika mwaka wa kwanza wa huduma,” alisema Mwambenja.

Alisema mafanikio hayo yametokana na ubora wa huduma ambazo zimebuniwa na kuwa benki ya kwanza kutoa aina ya huduma za kipekee kwa kulenga Watanzania
ambao wako katika sekta zisizo rasmi.

Mwenyekiti wa Bodi ya Wakurugenzi ya benki hiyo, Balozi Salome Sijaona,
