On December 21, Business Standard carried a news report, which was faithfully “followed up” by other business newspapers in Mumbai and the rest of the country. The report centred around a certain letter, purportedly written by markets regulator Sebi (Securities and Exchange Board of India). The letter was addressed to Pyramid Saimira, a Chennai-based theatre chain. The letter asked the promoters of the company to make an “open offer” to the shareholders of the company....

Billionaire financier Carl Icahn is looking at launching a proxy fight against Yahoo’s board, according to a CNBC report. That’s a fight that Microsoft, which dropped its unsolicited bid for Yahoo on May 3, was unwilling to take on. Icahn reportedly has been accumulating as many as 50 million shares, or 2.5% of Yahoo’s stock, which helps explain why Yahoo’s stock has remained well above its pre-Microsoft bid of about $19 a share. Icahn could nominate a full slate or a “short slate” of three or four directors, which would be a...

The Analyst Who Rocked Citi

nullMeredith Whitney's dire predictions shook the financial giant to the core and brought death threats. But Wall Street seems to think she got it right Meredith Whitney probably will not be getting any holiday cards from former Citigroup (C) Chief Executive Chuck Prince. The CIBC World Markets (CM) stock analyst was a leading agitator for the ouster of the embattled leader of the $200 billion bank. The company, already under fire because of its weak stock price, had run into even more trouble over its exposure to the troubled credit markets (BusinessWeek.com, 10/18/07).

The fall-out from Enron

   The shock waves from the collapse of Enron, a Texas-based energy-trading giant, are continuing to be felt by banks and their regulators, the accountancy profession and credit-rating agencies, as well as by politicians who benefited from the company’s past largesse THE bankruptcy of Enron—the world’s biggest-ever corporate failure—has left no one looking good.
