Executive Edition is a must have
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.

It's well balanced information that is useful on a daily basis. I'm very satisfied with the Executive Edition. I start each day with SES and a big cup of coffee!

Source Interlink President on Grind deal

I followed up with Source Interlink Media President Chris Argentieri to ask him a few questions about the Grind Networks acquisition.

 

First, I was curious how Source Interlink financed the deal, since Source Interlink filed for bankruptcy in 2009.

 

Argentieri told me the prepackaged bankruptcy that had the approval of Source Interlink lenders allowed the company to emerge with a much stronger balance sheet and a changed capital structure.

 

GrindTVThe company’s business is strong and improving, he said, and the acquisition was funded by free cash flow.

 

“Our cash position hasn’t been better in recent history,” he said.

 

Argentieri declined to say how much Source Interlink paid for Grind Networks.
