Be Mr. Market for the Weekend

July 27, 2012

I think it's safe to assume that everyone here has heard about Mr. Market, the ever-so-obliging fellow who tells you every day what he thinks your interest in your mutual business is worth and offers to buy you out or to sell you his interest on that basis.

I would like you to be Mr. Market this weekend and to have a look at the business we both own. It is a small American company with international operations and its latest summarized financials in chronological order look like this:


It's a small table, so I have used some abbreviations:

  • D for depreciation

  • NI for net income

  • CA for current assets
  • CL for current liabilities

  • LTD for long-term debt

  • TA for total assets
The numbers are in millions USD.

So, Mr. Market, what do you think our business is worth? Make me an offer and I will consider whether I will be a buyer or a seller.

Update, 7/28/2012: 11 million shares outstanding.
