The Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals

absip-leadership-exco

The Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals (ABSIP), was established in 1995 to address the apparent lack of representation of black professionals in the securities and investment industry. It was also conceived as a platform to address the aspirations of those in the industry and to create a forum for black professionals to exchange Information and Ideas.

The mandate of ABSIP has evolved to encompass the empowerment of black professionals and black business across the financial industry. Its membership has grown to include sub-sectors such as Asset Management, Corporate Banking, Corporate Finance, Corporate Managerial and Financial Consulting, Employee Benefits, Insurance, Investment Banking, Retail Banking, Private Banking, Private Equity, Stock broking, Treasury and Development Finance Institutions (DFIs).

ABSIP has become widely recognised as an influential force in the transformation of the Financial Sector as evidenced by its participation in drafting the landmark Financial Sector Charter (“FSC Charter”). ABSIP is an affiliate member of the BBC (Black Business Council).

dell_2412119b

PART 1

In this tutorial, we walk through Silver Lake’s $24 billion leveraged buyout of Dell and explain the tasks you might have to complete if you were to analyze this deal as part of a case study in a private equity interview.

Among other topics, we cover typical LBO case study questions to expect, why this particular deal was so unusual, and how to begin gathering data from industry reports, equity research, Dell’s filings and investor presentations, and other sources.

Then, we delve into how the transaction assumptions are set up, why the calculation for debt and equity is somewhat unusual, and how to factor in Michael Dell’s equity rollover and cash contribution and the company’s own excess cash usage.

Finally, we conclude with a discussion of the Sources & Uses schedule and how that works, plus a description of the different types of debt used in the transaction.

PART 2

Silver Lake’s $24 billion leveraged buyout of Dell and explain the tasks you might have to complete if you were to analyze this deal as part of a case study in a private equity interview.

In Part 2 of the case study, we go into how you might project revenue and expenses for Dell, how to come up with different scenarios, and how to use “channel checks” to come up with numbers that are different from consensus estimates.

We also cover briefly how to link the 3 financial statements and ensure that these assumptions and scenarios flow through everything properly.

Stop The Violence Day

STOP THE VIOLENCE DAY 2013

To: Local Pastors, Ministers and Clergy
From: Project FORWARD
Re: Citywide “Stop the Violence Day” in Houston

October 9, 2013

I pray this letter reaches you in the best of health and spirits. Let me first thank you for all that you do to make our community a better place. We would like to unite with you in that effort, particularly to help stop the senseless violence that appears to be getting worse every day.

In the spirit of unity and solidarity, a group of Black men and organizations have come together and declared Sunday, October 27th, “Citywide Stop the Violence/ Respect for Life Day.” It is a day of remembrance of those who have lost their lives to senseless violence and a day of support for their families. We believe that the church plays a critical role in a unified effort to eradicate the “spirit of Cain” in our community. We must come together. None of us can do it alone.

We are humbly seeking 100 pastors of 100 churches to incorporate a message of “Stop the Violence” into their sermon on the Sunday morning of October 27th. How wonderful would it be to see us as a community speaking with ONE VOICE against this violence on the same day at the same time. We have a group of committed men who have pledged to hit the streets, as well as the airwaves, to encourage as many Black men, boys and youth as we can to attend a church on that Sunday to hear the message. We will encourage single mothers, grandmothers and others to bring their young men to the various houses of worship that day to hear this special message.

Please consider joining us in this noble effort. In doing so, you will be joining thousands across the city in sending a strong message of peace in the streets. If we save ONE LIFE in the process then our work will not have been in vain. Please join us by committing to incorporate a “Stop the Violence” message into your sermon on October 27th. Please email us at info@projectforwardhouston.com to confirm your church’s participation. Thank you.
