Explain takeovers obligation, Financial Management

Takeover, Inc. is a Delaware corporation whose only stated purpose is to acquire companies.  It has virtually no assets and no employees other than the original founders who contributed a total of $50,000.   The founders are well known in the investment community and were formerly affiliated with a very successful investment firm called the Carlyng "Make Money" Group.  Takeover registers and qualifies as a blank check company with the SEC and raises $310 million under a Section 5 IPO.  After commissions and underwriting fees, it is left with $300 million.  It trades at about $10/share, about $2 above the offering price.  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.

  1. After closing the IPO, explain Takeover's obligation with respect to the funds it raised from the IPO.

    1. 100% cash.
    2. an exchange of cash and equity, i.e., the owners of Target get $150 million and 40% equity in Takeover.
