It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Adrenalina raised its bid from $4.50 to $5.00 for PacSun today. The move was quickly rejected by PacSun.

Here are the releases:

Adrenalina Raises Offer for Pacific Sunwear to $5.00 Per Share

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adrenalina (OTCBB: AENA - News), a retail entertainment destination designed for extreme sports enthusiasts, today announced that it has resubmitted its proposal to the Board of Directors of Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. (Nasdaq: PSUN; "PacSun") to enter into negotiations aimed at acquiring that company at an increased price of $5.00 per share, or an aggregate of approximately $329 million, in a combination of cash and stock.

Adrenalina's increased acquisition offer represents a premium of 67% above the closing price of PacSun common shares on October 28, 2008. The proposed purchase price per share is tiny_mce_marker.50 or 11% higher than Adrenalina's original offer of $4.50 per share announced on October 20, 2008. The offer is subject to PacSun's Board and shareholders approval, execution of a definitive agreement, obtaining the requisite financing and certain other terms and conditions.

Adrenalina noted that it has identified strategic partners, wealthy individuals and institutional investors who have expressed a strong interest as well as commitments in providing the requisite financial support to finalize the transaction.

"I call on the PacSun Board of Directors to act in the best interests of their shareholders by engaging in discussions with Adrenalina to implement our proposal. We believe their Board acted hastily and without full consideration in rejecting our earlier offer. Instead of enhancing shareholder value, PacSun's share price has declined 20% since October 17, the day prior to our original offer, which represents a loss of more than $45 million in market value. We urge the Board now to take this opportunity to execute its fiduciary duty," said Ilia Lekach, Chairman and CEO of Adrenalina.

"Our first offer was received well by those who want to participate in the acquisition," continued Mr. Lekach. "We remain excited about the potential to create value by reinvigorating the PacSun brand through a combination of Adrenalina's innovative lifestyle retailing concepts with PacSun's established brand and extensive store footprint."

The full text of Adrenalina's letter to the PacSun CEO and Board of Directors is attached.

Pacific Sunwear's response:
