BloombergBusiness: Scott Rostan “Dollar’s Gain Gives CEOs More Muscle to Acquire Abroad” By Tara Lachapelle The stronger U.S. dollar may be the final nudge American acquirers needed to start bidding for foreign targets they’ve had their eyes on. Even as the rising currency weighs on earnings at some U.S. companies that have overseas operations, it’s also offering an added bonus for those scouring abroad for deals. Just last week, Ball Corp., a U.S. maker of beverage cans, agreed to buy London-based Rexam Plc for $6.8 billion, less than it would have cost a year ago thanks to the relative strength of the dollar and U.S. stocks against their European counterparts. With American suitors getting more bang for their buck in other parts of the world, the Rexam deal is probably just the first U.S. cross-border takeover of size this year. The greenback has already gained 21 percent against the euro in […]

Commercial Property Executive: Robert Rostan “What’s Next for the House That Schorsch Built?”

FEBRUARY ISSUE: February 16, 2015 By Gail Kalinoski, Contributing Editor For American Realty Capital Properties Inc., the world has changed drastically since Feb. 7, 2014. On that day, ARCP completed the acquisition of Cole Real Estate Investments Inc., creating a $21.5 billion net-lease REIT, the largest of its kind. Nicholas Schorsch, ARCP’s chairman & CEO and the architect of its swift rise, touted the $11.2 billion Cole deal as an “epic transaction.” Only a year later, Schorsch and other top executives are gone in the wake of last fall’s revelations of accounting irregularities. Resignations, lawsuits and falling stock prices followed thoat disclosure in rapid succession, along with rumors of federal investigations. The question remains: What’s next for the net-lease juggernaut? The answer will have far-reaching implications, but it may not be forthcoming anytime soon. “They’re still unraveling this puzzle. It […]

cnbc-logo Scott Rostan “Burger stock bull market beats market by double”

By Evelyn Cheng Shake Shack executives couldn’t have picked a better time to take the fast-casual chain publicAnd not just because the stock market is in the middle of a raging five-year bull market. Burger stocks, in particular, are in the middle of an even bigger rally. took a market-cap weighted basket of burger stocks and found the index had double the returns of the S&P 500 for the last five years. Key member of the burger portfolio, Jack in the Box, recently got an upgrade to “outperform” at Wedbush Securities. The firm said a major driver for growth is cheap gas, which the EIA expects will add $750 to household incomes this year. “All the restaurants have outperformed S&P,” said Wedbush’s Nick Setyan. “With gas prices dropping, restaurants have seen 15 to 20 percent growth across the board.” The “Burger […]


Bloomberg: Scott Rostan: “Swiss Franc Surge Is Bonus to Buyers With U.S. in Mind: Real M&A”

By Aaron Kirchfeld, Manuel Baigorri, and Tara Lachapelle Switzerland now has one more reason to join Europe’s acquisition binge in the U.S. The unexpected rise in the franc is giving Swiss companies more acquisition firepower as they seek economic growth outside of Europe, according to bankers and academics. Drugmaker Novartis AG, crop-chemicals producer Syngenta AG and Nestle SA, the world’s biggest food company, are among those that could pursue U.S. targets that might range from General Mills Inc. to parts of Dow Chemical Co. A surge in Switzerland-to-U.S. transactions would build on last year’s 270 percent increase in takeovers of American businesses by European buyers, in which Germany’s Merck KGaA, Bayer AG and ZF Friedrichshafen AG led the way. “U.S. M&A files have picked up steam,” said Urs Raeber, head of investment banking in Switzerland for Deutsche Bank AG in […]

Bloomberg Businessweek: Wall Street Doesn’t Want You Unless You’re a Robot

By Akane Otani Want to work on Wall Street? Suit up, turn your spell check on, and leave your risk-taking, self-starter attitude home. When finance industry professionals that interview new MBAs were asked to identify skills they deemed most important in applicants, 75 percent picked communication skills, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek survey of 1,320 recruiters conducted as part of our 2014 MBA rankings (including 212 from financial services, banking, and accounting companies). Recruiters also prized analytical thinking (which 60.8 percent said was highly important), motivation and drive (52.4 percent), and the ability to work collaboratively (also 52.4 percent). Those surveyed could name up to five skills, so the numbers don’t add up to 100 percent. A track record of cross-cultural fluency or an ability to create initiatives from scratch, however, were the skills least valued by finance recruiters. While these attributes are low priorities for the entire group of MBA recruiters surveyed, finance people rate them even […]

Bloomberg: $100 Billion Deal Day Evokes 1998’s Exxon-Mobil: Real M&A By Brooke Sutherland and Tara Lachapelle The last time two mergers this huge were announced on the same day, Exxon was targeting Mobil and Bill Clinton was still in the White House. Halliburton Co. (HAL) and Actavis Plc this morning announced a combined $100 billion in takeovers. It’s rare to see two deals of $20 billion or more hit the tape at once — so rare, it hasn’t happened in 16 years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That’s when energy giant Exxon Corp. agreed to buy Mobil Corp. and two European drugmakers struck the merger that created Aventis SA. The two takeovers added to what has already been the busiest year for deal making since the record in 2007. “There’s a little bit of coincidence involved in this, but the broader stroke that I would paint is confidence is getting stronger,” […]
