Bear Stearns

The Bear Stearns Companies, Inc. (former New York Stock Exchange ticker symbol BSC) based in New York City, is a global investment bank and securities trading and brokerage firm owned by JPMorgan Chase. The main business areas, based on 2006 net revenue distributions, were capital markets (equities, fixed income, investment banking, just under 80%), wealth management (under 10%) and global clearing services (12%). Bear Stearns pioneered the securitization and asset-backed securities markets, and as investor losses mounted in those markets in 2006 and 2007, the company actually increased its exposure, especially the mortgage-backed assets that were central to the subprime mortgage crisis. In March 2008, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York provided an emergency loan to try to avert a sudden collapse of the company. The company could not be saved, however, and was sold to JPMorgan Chase for as low as ten dollars per share, a price far below the 52-week high of $133.20 per share, traded before the crisis, although not as low as the two dollars per share originally agreed upon by Bear Stearns and JP Morgan Chase.

An organization can have a high number of "likes" on its Facebook page and lots of "followers" on its Twitter account, but does that mean anything from a financial perspective? Is it worth the organization's effort to maintain an active presence on social media in order to generate more revenue? Is it possible to use social media metrics such as the number of "likes" and the number of "followers" to predict an organization's "success" even though those metrics are nonfinancial indicators? Prior research studies have looked at how organizations should utilize social media, but few studies have provided strong empirical evidence to support how the outcome of using social media should be measured and why. Focusing on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube, this book examines how Fortune 500 companies use social media. Collected over a five-year period, the authors assess the companies' social media activities and their business performance data, such as stock return, total revenue, net income, and earnings per share. These data, both financial and nonfinancial, are matched and statistically analyzed to see whether a company's social media activities are significantly associated with its business performance.

How do you build and manager a channel of more than 2,000 resellers serving over 100,000 customers across 30 countries? From a small corner of the world where English isn't the main language. Navision did just that! When Microsoft took over in 2002, the total turnover of and around Navision's products was in the order of DKK 17 billion (USD 3.4B) and the entire ecosystem employed over 20,000 people. '5,460 Miles from Silicon Valley' reveals the full story of two of Denmark's undisputed business successes - from cradle to adolescence. It reveals an industry that is completely unpredictable, where strategies do not necessarily lead to success. But it's also a tale of people, ambitions, and resourcefulness. How to pursue your dreams and build a successful business up from scratch - in one of the smallest markets in the world. With the price tag of USD 1.45 billion, Navision was Microsoft's biggest acquisition to date. 5,460 Miles from Silicon Valley is a book primarily about Damgaard Data, a company set up in 1984 by two brothers, 23-year-old Erik and 21-year-old Preben Damgaard. Less than eight years later, the company had an annual turnover of USD 12.5 million and employed 100 people. In 1994, with the objective of bringing the company's products onto the global market, IBM bought into Damgaard Data. This turned out to be a troublesome collaboration and in 1998, Erik and Preben bought out IBM's share of the business. In October 1999, Damgaard Data was listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange and within three weeks, its value soared to nearly USD 1 billion. Unfortunately, the excitement was short lived. Only a few months later, at the beginning of December, a sudden drop in revenue sent the share price plunging. The company's principal competitor, Navision Software, soon suffered a similar fate and the two companies decided to merge under the name Navision. The goal was to re-establish market trust by once again producing impressive growth and earning rates. The strategy worked and in 2001 Microsoft called. The book, more than 500 pages long, is a detailed account of the history of Damgaard Data and Navision Software. Based on more than 200 hours of interviews as well as on research into more than 1,000 internal and external sources, it is an in-depth analysis of the grit, perseverance and more than a little good luck necessary for entrepreneurial success. Anyone, including those without a business background, interested in the corporate world or simply in a fascinating real-life story, is sure to enjoy this remarkable tale. The book illustrates the conditions and challenges facing a company seeking growth and success in the world's most turbulent sector. It reveals situations and describes episodes into which the general public has never previously been given insight. It contains many surprises and debunks several myths about what determines commercial success.
