The founders allocate $50 million to operation of Takeover, e.g., for salaries, office space, travel expenses, research, consultants, attorneys, etc, in their search for a takeover target. Six months after completing the IPO, Takeover seeks to acquire Target LLC, a privately owned software company that makes "near field programs" used in Android, valued at about $250 million. Seventeen months after the IPO, Takeover and Target reach an agreement for selling the company.
