The 10k vs. the Annual Report

...The 10K vs. the Annual Report eBay Inc. is one of the largest e-commerce businesses listed in the Fortune 500. Like other companies, eBay Inc. prepares an Annual Report and a 10K every year in which it discloses each activity and financial performance. eBay Inc.’s Annual Report and 10K are designed for different audiences. The Annual Report provides information about the company’s activities and financial performance for shareholders and investors. The 10K is an official document that publicly traded companies must file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Annual Report provides specific growth of each activity such as eBay marketplace, PayPal, and Skype to increase the confidence of its shareholders and investors. The 10K provides detailed background and financial information targeted towards business professionals and the SEC. eBay Inc.’s 2009 Annual Report was a letter with a lot of details and numbers to demonstrate the performance. The CEO, John Donahoe, listed specific activities’ revenues and growths such as “In November 2009, we sold approximately 70 percent of Skype allowing us to focus on our two core growth engines: payments and e-commerce.” Also, Mr. Donahoe compared the growth of each activity to previous years. For example, in the first half of the year, on eBay marketplace, “we delivered $8.7 billion in revenues, a 2 percent increase from the prior year.” Mr. Donahoe used sincere language to build a strong relationship with eBay......

Seagate Technology

... Seagate Technology Buyout CASE SUMMARY In May of 1999, Seagate sold one of its companies, the Network & Storage Management Group (NSMG), to VERITAS in return for 155 million shares of VERITAS stock. The transaction made Seagate VERITAS’s largest stockholder, creating an ownership stake of over 40%. When a few problems regarding stock prices arose, concerned shareholders were not far behind. Following the transaction, the market was failing to recognize the value of Seagate’s stake in VERITAS, as evident from a 200% increase in VERITAS stock versus only a 25% increase in Seagate’s stock. The board felt that the market was incredibly under pricing Seagate’s stock. After two failed attempts to increase Seagate’s stock price and unlock its value from VERITAS, the company turned to Morgan Stanley for help. In early November of 1999, Morgan Stanley arranged a meeting between Seagate executives and representatives of Silver Lake Partners. After several months of discussion, Silver Lake delivered a proposal and potential solution to Seagate’s problem. This proposal involved a complicated two-step transaction.  The first step would involve Seagate selling off its disk drive business, including about $765 million in cash, to a newly-formed company controlled by Silver Lake. The purchase would be financed through a LBO in which Silver Lake and other private equity investors would provide a portion of the selling price through equity, and the rest would be financed through debt  The...

Seagate

...Seagate Technology Buyout I. INTRODUCTION In 1999, Seagate Technology, Inc., decided that in order to increase their market value, they needed to make some big changes. Due to their undervalued stock price, Seagate decided to undergo a leveraged buyout (LBO) with Silver Lake Partners L.P. During this time, four main concerns arose among the parties involved: • • • • How can Seagate address the company’s low stock price? How should the buyout be financed? What should the capital structure look like? How much should investors pay to acquire Seagate’s disk drive operations? How can Seagate address VERITAS Software Corporation’s needs and concerns? After analyzing the case and talking to executives at Silver Lake and Seagate, we think that Seagate’s low stock price is best addressed by a leveraged buyout with a new capital structure composed of 45% equity and 55% debt. Furthermore, we have found that the company is worth approximately $2 billion in the buyout. Finally, VERITAS should agree to participate in the deal because they will also win by retiring a portion of their stock. The subsequent sections of this report will further explain how we arrived at these conclusions. II. ASSUMPTIONS In analyzing the capital structure, the value of the company, and stock price of Seagate Technology, we are operating under the following assumptions: • • • Corporate tax rate of 34% Market risk premium of 9% (based on 75-year historic average) Capital expenditures from Projected......

Seagate Technology Buyout

...Even though Seagate had a market leading position in disk drive operations, the market assigned no value, even negative value to Seagate`s operation. Seagate shareholders own 155 million shares (40%) of VERITAS. The market value of the VERITAS’ shares exceeded the Seagate’s main operations equity. Seagate was approximately undervalued by 1.5 billion. The undervaluation of Seagate’s equity was mostly due to tax liabilities of the VERITAS and the maturity of the disk drive industry. Other "soft issue" problem caused by the relative pricing of Seagate and Veritas was lack of incentive for Seagate employees for advancement of disk drive business. Their stock options were tied to VERITAS’ stock price, not to the performance of Seagate’s disk drive business. Also, because of lack of less interest in Seagate’s products, Seagate could not provide money for expansion of R&D and manufacturing in their disk drive operations. Seagate Technology needed a two-step transaction to unlock the value of Seagate for its shareholders. The first step was a leveraged buy-out of Seagate’s drive operations and the second step was performing a tax-free stock swap with VERITAS. A potential arbitrage opportunity was created because of the undervalued market price of Seagate’s shares. Right before the transaction between VERITAS and Seagate occurred; there was a good opportunity for arbitrage by buying Seagate's shares at the underestimated price. The shareholders can sell their shares at a......

Seagate Lbo

...In May 1999, Seagate sold its software business to VERITAS Corp in a stock transaction. By undertaking this, Seagate became the largest VERITAS shareholder with over 40% stake. Small numbers of VERITAS’ outstanding shares, both in absolute terms and relative to the Seagate, created relative mispricing due to the increase in demand and decrease in supply. VERITAS' stock price appreciated dramatically but Seagate's stock price didn’t; as the result the market value of Seagate's VERITAS stake exceeded the total market value of Seagate. When the issues with Seagate’s low stock price arose, management tried several options to remedy the problem. Initially, they sold some VERITAS shares they held and then bought back some of their own stock in the open market. They felt that decreasing the amount of outstanding Seagate`s shares and untying the value seen in its VERITAS holdings would result in a higher share price. As these actions failed, the management had to look for other options. They could have cut the losses by liquidating company`s assets. The problem with this option lies in the fact that huge tax liabilities would be incurred for the company and its shareholders, and the entity would be permanently terminated. The only other option was a buyout or merger if they were to ensure both the happiness of shareholders and the future of the Seagate name and company. They formulated a two-stage plan in an attempt to unlock the value in Seagate's operating assets in a......

Seagate Technology

...price of Seagate Technology was 64,25 $/share at that time (Exhibit 3). Exhibit 4 shows the interesting development that starting in October 1999 the pre-tax value of Veritas Stake overruns the market capitalization of Seagate. In March 2000 there is a huge gap between the Seagate market capitalization and the pre-tax value of Veritas Stake, which points to overvalued Veritas shares. As an investor I would short sell the Veritas share, to make money as soon as the Veritas share value goes down and normalizes. If every MBA would take this position the price of Veritas shares would decrease to a normal level very fast where it would not make sense to wait for a further decreasement of the price. Otherwise you could also say that Seagate’s stock value is undervalued. So buying it and selling it to its fair value would give an arbitrage possibility. But here again, when every MBA would buy shares of Seagate, it will be priced at its fair value very soon. The reasons why Veritas and Seagate are priced the way they are, are different. Both companies are active in different market segments with different conditions. Veritas is a smaller company with a main focus on software, while Seagate is active in the disk drive market. Veritas is growing significantly and therefore has achieved a high priced share. Seagate faces a fierce competition in its market with declining revenues and high volatility. Therefore Seagate is priced fairly low. Additionally the stock price of Seagate......

Seagate Case

...Seagate Technology Buyout This case looked at Silver Lake’s proposed leveraged buyout (LBO) of Seagate Technology Inc’s (Seagate) disk drive operations, followed by the tax-free acquisition of Seagate’s remaining assets by Veritas Software Corp (Veritas). The stock prices of the two firms varied greatly at the time with Veritas’ growing much more rapidly than Seagate’s, 200% versus 20% respectively. Executives believed that Seagate’s shares had become undervalued. In order to take advantage of the situation and make money with minimal or no risk I personally would have invested in Seagate. The idea being that the market would eventually realize this undervaluation and correct the price of Seagate’s shares or the company would look to unlock this shareholder value through other means such as the proposed LBO. If everyone in the market took this position, one would see greater demand for Seagate’s shares and therefore the price of these shares would increase eliminating the undervaluation and the arbitrage opportunity. Seagate and Veritas shares were priced the way they were due to the market’s perceived risk of the two firms. Seagate was observed to have higher risk and that resulted in a more discounted share price. This risk involved the nature of Seagate’s business. In the late 1990’s disk drive producers were becoming more out of favour with the stock market versus software companies. Although disk drive producers were seeing growth in their number of unit sales,......

Olds, creator of the Oldsmobile, had a dispute with stockholders and left his own company, Olds Motor Works. He soon formed REO Motor Company, which evolved into the Nuclear Corporation of America and ultimately. While successful at first, REO ultimately relied on defense contracts to stay in business. And when the Korean War ended in 1955, so too did REO. Its assets were merged with Nuclear Consultants, Inc. to form Nuclear Corporation of America. Mission “Being the safest, highest quality, lowest cost, most productive and most profitable steel and steel products company in the world.

10k & Annual Report Comparison

...On an annual basis, companies such as Procter & Gamble are required to file two well-known types of reports: the 10K filing and the Annual Report. The purpose behind both of these documents is to monitor a company’s performance for the past year. Stakeholders in the respective companies can acquire this publicly provided data and analyze the information for different purposes. While 10K filings and annual reports contain similar data, their perspectives differ. For example, consider that the 10K is a financial fill-in-the-blank form whereas an annual report is a marketing document. The goal of the annual report is to persuade and inform current and potential stockholders. It is sent out to shareholders when companies hold their annual meetings to elect directors. Ultimately, this report serves as a benefit to a company because it has free reign over its content and design. On the contrary, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission requires 10k filings to inform about the company, monitor finances and prevent fraud. Both documents are effective considering their particular audiences; 10K’s are for a financial audience and annual reports are for the general public stockholders. Inherent differences such as layout, design details, tone, and content are apparent in Procter & Gamble’s 10K SEC filing and their annual report. Procter & Gamble’s annual report effectively uses verbal and visual strategies to catch the reader’s attention. Its colorful front page......
