Bruce Levenson: Two Buyers in Lengthy Selling Process

Standard

Bruce Levenson has tried to sell the Atlanta Hawks in a lengthy process which led to two front runners finally appearing. These front runners will pay for the team and the Philips Arena. The attempt to sell the Hawks has carried on for six months at that point. At the time, the deadline for the last bids was April 10. There was also the ability to move the date back as needed as more bids enter into consideration. Bruce Levenson is doing the best he can to get the highest big and gain the most profit possible from his team.

This news was shared by a few people that knew a lot about the situation with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution of the two groups that are in the front running for buying the Atlanta Hawks. The prospective buyers have signed agreements on non-disclosures so that they don’t speak in public on the process of the sales. One of the finalists is led by Steve Kaplan, who owns the Grizzlies. Along with Kaplan are a couple of billionaires named Handy Poernomo, Erick Thohir and Jason Levien, indonesian billionaires and former Grizzlies CEO respectively. Another person that is seen with the group is Hank Aaron, a member of the Braves.

The other leading group is well connected with Entertainment. This group is led by Mark Rachesky of Lionsgate Entertainment. Joining him is Steve Starker, who is a New York investment banker. One other member of the team is Jesse Itzler. He has consulted with the Hawks and went to plenty of games. He is also married to Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx. Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle were hired by The Hawks in order to deal with the process of selling the team. Meetings were held in Atlanta for the groups after the preliminary bids of Feb. 24. There are a few groups that lost contact with the firms which put them out of the running.

The process of selling the Hawks has been long. The Hawks have still proven to be profitable for Bruce Levenson, says Forbes magazine. The process was expected to take until June for completion. Levenson has begun trying to sell the team in September. This long drawn out process has amazed many just for the length of the sales process alone.

Don Ressler: Internet Marketing And Brand Building Maven

Standard

When it comes to online performance marketing and business and brand building, few people have as good a track record as Don Ressler. Starting in the early days of internet marketing he has been able to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for internet based businesses. He has also been instrumental in building a number of very successful companies using his internet marketing skills on Pando and understanding of the needs of the modern consumer. Ressler started his first company, FitnessHeaven.com in the late 1990s. Using his marketing skills and experience he was quickly able to make it so profitable it was snapped up by Intermix Media. The company was so impressed with Ressler’s work they made him a part of their staff.

At Intermix Media Ressler worked with 19 year old Adam Goldenberg to co-found one of Intermix Media’s most reliable profit centers, Alena Media on LinkedIn. As a part of Intermix’s marketing arm Alena Media, led by Ressler and Goldenberg, generated hundreds of millions of dollars for its parent company. It helped to make Intermix Media so attractive that News Corp bought the company in 2005 for over $650 million. The new owners failed to fully utilize the talents of Ressler and Goldenberg, so the duo left and formed a company of their own. That company, Brand Ideas/Intelligent Beauty, and its subsidiaries would help to make Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg’s work legendary.

Founded less than a month after Ressler and Goldenberg left Intermix Media, Brand Ideas which later became Intelligent Beauty, is a business incubator. Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg used it to create, launch and develop DERMSTORE and SENSA and generate almost $500 million in revenue in one year. Ressler, Goldenberg and the rest of the Intelligent Beauty team also went on to found a highly successful online subscription fashion company called JustFab. Once the company added fashion maven Kimora Lee Simmons to the JustFab team they quickly grew to have over 6 million subscribers on Brandettes from all over the world.

In 2010 Ressler, Goldenberg, Lee Simmons and the team at JustFab combined forces with acclaimed actress Kate Hudson to create a subscription e-commerce company they called Fabletics. The company offers stylish, comfortable, versatile clothing that can be worn to work, to party or to exercise. The subscription-based service at http://ecommerce-news.internetretailer.com/nav/tags/donressler/0 with its curated monthly showrooms featuring their latest fashions and designs was an instant hit and recently began opening bricks-and-mortar stores worldwide.

According to Erh Ray, “We had no investor, no banks, no godfather. We started with absolute zero, therefore we had to work very hard.”

The success of the advertising agency attracted potential buyers such as Lowe. In 2005, BorghiErh became Borghi Lowe. As such the presidency of the newly formed company was shared with Erh Ray. Since then, the agency gained prominent clients domestically and in international market. Recently, the company merged with Lowe & Partners and Mullen Group, calling itself Mullen Lowe. Jose Borghi became co-CEO alongside Andre Gomes.

Don Ressler’s Fabletics Empire

Standard

The man behind a successful string of start up companies in the beauty and fitness companies such as Intelligent Beauty is Don Ressler. The first company he founded years ago was Fitnessheaven.com and he successfully sold it to Intermix Media in the early 2000s. Don Ressler built upon this soon after by creating a new company called Alena Media by teaming up with Adam Goldenberg. Alena Media became very profitable in a short period of time and it was able to earn hundreds of millions of dollars in yearly revenue.

Ressler was very confident in his ability to do well in the world of online marketing so he decided to make an enterprise that built successful online brands. His innovation was thinking of a way to do it with the help of automation to reduce the work that it would take to launch each brand as well as the costs.

The first brand that Don Ressler launched with his new business model was the Dermstore. It was an online store that sold cosmetics as well as affordable skin care products. Shortly after Don successfully launched Sensa a weight loss system that capitalized on helping people lose weight through online advice and support. Both of these companies made a great deal of money in a short time. They were profitable enough to convince investors to give them $43 million in funding back in the year 2008.

The third company that Don Ressler launched was JustFab and it received $33 million in seed funding and it attracted the attention of Kimora Lee Simmons who joined as the President and Creative Director. Eventually, JustFab had a total of 4 million active members which enabled them to get even more funding for a total of $76 million from a variety of investors such as Matrix Partners, Rho Ventures, and Crossover Ventures.

With so much momentum behind it JustFab looked for opportunity in other untapped markets. They saw that parents were being underserved and that there were many parents who wanted to buy fashionable clothing for their children so Don’s company served that market as well. The company today is worth over $250 million.

GEORGE SOROS CONTINUES TO TAKE BIG GAMBLES

Standard

It looks like George Soros is back in the game after what many consider a long break from trading. Recently, the billionaire investment was involved in a round of what the Wall Street Journal refers to as of ‘big bearish investments’. Soros Fund Management has turned its investment focus to gold and shares in gold miners. These investments were made after the sale of its stocks in other companies, all this at a time that the view of the potential of large market moves and the global economic outlook is gloomier.

George Soros is arguably on the best bear investors in the stock exchange today which can be credited to the big profits he has made from stocks and other successful investments. A bear is a market condition in which the prices of securities are falling and as a result investors anticipate losses in the bear market and selling of the securities continues. The 85-year-old billionaire who is of Hungarian-American origin is characterized by having the ability to seek a silver lining in what is considered weak global outlook, according to the Wall Street Journal. According to the same source, he was attracted by opportunities to gain from incoming economic problems.

Brian Bonar: Experience is the Difference

Standard

Brian Bonar faced some stiff competition when competing for the Cambridge Who’s Who® Executive of the Year in Finance. I’m talking about some top-flight heavy-hitters in the executive world. As a matter of fact, this award is so prestigious that only two men and two women receive it. It isn’t like they are handing it out to just any executive that runs just any company. They are supremely picky and they take a long time and put a lot of different factors into making their decision. Three of the key factors, however, are professional accomplishments, academic achievements and leadership abilities.

Let’s start with professional accomplishments, for which there are many, for Brian Bonar. First, of course, is the experience with over thirty years of management experience in the financial sector. This experience makes him more than qualified for handling and running Dalrada Financial Corporation. Brian Bonar has been the CEO for over a decade. So it shows that when he gets the job, he keeps it and keeps it for a long, long time. Let’s go back to the experience, which I think is vital. I love the fact there are a ton of young up-and-coming CEO’s out there. It’s a wonderful thing. However, sometimes and it is totally not their fault, they don’t have the experience of someone like Brian Bonar.

All About Brian Bonar, Leader and Executive

Experience allows you to look back on past times in your life and remember how you handled them. You know how you took care of it, what you learned from it, and what not to do or what to do in the future. As far as academic achievements, Mr. Brian Bonar has a Ph.D, which is a high level of schooling. It shows that he places a great importance on education. He is not afraid to go through schooling and pass with flying colors. Not many people, again, are walking the streets with those.

Lastly, but certainly not least is his leadership abilities. When you are a CEO or a chairman you are a leader. People look up to you and they expect answers on how to solve a problem or how to handle something. Brian has always been one of those CEO’s where he knows how to walk that fine line between being stern yet not overly mean and friendly but not overly friendly. This is incredibly difficult. When you are a CEO, you are their boss and that needs to be remembered. However, you don’t want to strike fear into the hearts of your employees. That won’t get the best results. Fear-based leadership puts people on edge. However, when you are too nice and too friendly, people think they can slack off and not do their job. He knows how to be there for you but at the same time, it is a job and deserves to be treated as such.

Globalization Has Made The World Interdependent And One Misstep Could Rock That Relationship According To Billionaire George Soros

Standard

When your net worth is more than $23 billion, you have the right to voice economic opinions on the world market. Some economists and ordinary people on bloomberg.com may not listen to those opinions, and the people that do listen may call them strange or the ranting of an eccentric capitalist. But when George Soros, the Hungarian-born billionaire, voices his opinion most of the world listens and takes notes. 




That’s what Bloomberg.com did when Soros was interviewed after an economic forum in Sri Lanka recently on georgesoros.com. Soros is a firm believer in open societies, and he has donated more than $6 billion to promote open societies in countries that don’t respect that social method.




The Bloomberg.com article talked about what Soros has accomplished over the years. His hedge fund is one of the most successful funds in the industry, and his foundations help people in more than 22 countries have a democratic voice. Soros spends most of his time working with his Open Society Institute, but George Soros still talks about investing and economic trends because those things are in his blood. 




Soros graduated from the London School of Economics in 1952 with a degree in philosophy. He moved to the United States in 1956 to work on Wall Street. Mr. Soros is well-versed in economic and philosophic topics, and he is not afraid to voice his opinion when he is asked to comment on issues that may have an impact on the global economy. During the forum in Sri Lanka, Soros let the attendees know that he believed the global economy is in the process of contracting and that contraction will be obvious by the end 2016. 




NYBooks.com reprinted Soros comments from the forum, and that article said China’s manufacturing malfunction is the root of the Chinese economic meltdown. The Chinese don’t call it a meltdown, according to Mr. Soros. The Chinese government doesn’t release the real figures to the rest of the world until they there is no choice but to do so. Mr. Soros said the manipulation of the China’s currency is a good example of how China deals with sensitive issues. Even their gross domestic product growth rate is inflated, according to Mr. Soros.




The Chinese say their economy will grow by at least 6.5 percent a year for the next five years, but Soros believes Chinese growth will be less than 3.5 a year. That is considered a recession in China even though the Chinese won’t use that term to describe their economic debacle.




The bottom line is China is pushing the world into the next major economic downturn, because their narcissistic capitalistic side is front and center, and the world is at their mercy, according to Mr. Soros.
