Option Games: Common Stock Values Get Murkier — The Information
Valuing common stock has gotten trickier for startups. The growing number and complexity of rights on preferred shares are causing companies to adjust their reasoning around how much their common stock is worth, according to firms providing the valuations and lawyers overseeing them. But companies still have a lot of discretion, a reminder that how startups calculate their value frequently bears little relation to big funding headlines. [...] Valuations of startup firms’ common stock for employee option grants has been complicated by increasing complexity of rights on preferred stock and secondary market transactions. [...] [ !!! Snapchat offered common stock only in recent (May 2015) investment, Alibaba & two hedge funds were ok with it. But further termsheet details (liquidation preferences) unknown. Existing holders of common stock (employees) could be diluted massively, in future, ie Snapchat has a down round in the future/eventual IPO - on.wsj.com/1KICv8H &! bit.ly/1iiJw3G ]

Forget the Verizon-AOL deal. The big wave in tech M&A is just getting started. | PandoDaily
The all-cash AOL deal may drain Verizon’s cash reserves, but consider that Verizon generated $10 billion in operating cash flows last quarter – on top of $113 billion in total debt.

Careful what you wish against: Silicon Valley just rolled out a red carpet to government regulation | PandoDaily
I never thought I’d write these words: Sometimes the public markets is the best thing that can happen to a hot company. [...] Today, Uber running a different playbook than even Facebook. First, it has controlled access to liquidity much more than Facebook ever did. But, by contrast, the company’s access to capital has been an exaggeration of Facebook’s already prodigious fundraising path. Uber has wholly embraced the notion of raising gargantuan amounts of money at jaw-dropping late stage valuations as an avenue to put off an IPO, seemingly indefinitely if it wants. That should suit a CEO like Uber’s Travis Kalanick who bristles at anyone telling him how to do his job and hates government regulation. Importantly, Uber is the first unicorn of the mobile-first era. [...] Uber’s investors have exerted no pressure on the Valley darling. [...] Reckless disregard for customers.
