It was clear that something was happening but he was just to busy to understand the current events.
A major investor, an advocate investor, one of those true believers was buying the companies stock and was buying it up on the cheap.
The companies stock price has had a tough time over the last few years, rocking back and forth but a lot lower than a few years ago.
He knew the stock might be ripe for picking but he had a business to save.
The outside advocate investor was buying enough stock to sponsor some kind of takeover. One morning he was per say standing there, standing over our company, smoking his cigarette wearing his leather jacket looking tough.
He told us to put his guys on the board or there would be trouble, he could force himself on us but we were tough too and told him to take a hike.
We leaned back, looked up at him and said we don’t date hustlers so get off our block. We knew he wanted it, you could see it in his eyes and his blue jeans bulged, money stuffed in his pants.
Every day he was there, one way or another, almost stocking us, checking us out, one hand in his pocket and his eye on the prize.
Our C.E.O. tried to keep working but he spent hours just cleaning out his office, getting ready for this guy to walk in and take over. It was just a matter of time so he looked over his shoulder a lot and always watched the clock and the stock price.
The investor bought so much stock the company shares started to move up, not a bad deal for doing nothing.
The money boys noticed the big stock buys and was reporting that maybe $500 million dollars in shares had been bought. This buyer was not an advocate investor, he was a shark and he was biting. People were getting a little nervous, it was like dating an ugly girl they joked at lunch but, nobody was really smiling anymore, they just played the part, kind of anxious and not so fearless as last year.
The investor started showing up and demanding private meetings because he was now a big shot, big time stock holder. He seemed like a nice guy except for his bad breath, demanding and difficult conversations and his constant smoking and taking breaks.
He told the boss that he wanted us to buy out Office Depot because he was a big shot over there, come to find out.
Our C.E.O. wasn’t interested so the investor went public and the bankers jumped on the deal as a real money maker, for them anyway.
We had 85,000 people on the payroll and the investor kept talking about synergy which really means layoff half the people, close half the stores, force the stock price higher and higher than dump the stock for massive capital gains called cash profits.
There was not doubt after a few weeks trying to deal with this investor, this was going to be a one night stand and then he was gone.
He didn’t know anything about office supplies or anything else but, he had the stock which gave him power and he was leaning on us and he made it clear in public, deal with me or fight.
We could either make the deal or get nailed on the conference table, he didn’t care one way or another.
The investor was forcing us down a dead end road and there was only one ending. Buy out Office Depot and merge the companies which would create the only single national source for office supplies. The investor was on us, the deal was laid out and the offer was made, more money that we had to borrow so the dating was over, it was a merger.
The bankers loved it, the bankers that would handle the deal loved it more, standing to make tens of millions of dollars to sign some paperwork.
The Staples SPLS stock went down and Office Depot ODP went up, all very predictable if you’ve been forced before. Staples Inc SPLS offered $6.3 billion dollars for Office Depot ODP which meant borrowing more and more money, digging the hole even deeper.
The investor Starboard Value had forced the dating into mating. Surely he went back to the shore and admired his yacht sitting off the beach waiting for him?
He would make hundreds of millions of dollars just on the reporting of the SPLS ODP OMX merger deal. He was a major at Staples and Office Depot so his combined stock value soared just like the seagulls he watched fly about.
He started selling the stock, most likely before Office Depot announced that their general office in Florida would close, leaving the first 2,000 employees stranded, jobless and forced on government welfare programs. The tax payers in Florida screamed as they just allowed Office Depot tax breaks to keep the jobs and the general office in Florida, they didn’t understand.
