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 is common knowledge in our industry that there is one undisputed leader in reporting on the topics, businesses and trends that impact all of us the most, and it is shop-eat-surf.com. Their access to those who make our industry happen is second to none, and we value not only the content of their reporting but the editorial thought on what it all means both in the present as well as the future. If we were asked to give a rating, it would be five out of five stars.

Billabong requests halt in trading of its stock, news report says private equity firm makes bid

By Press Releases
February 15, 2012 3:13 PM

Editor’s note: Billabong filed this notice with the Australian Securities Exchange on Thursday. Its request for a temporary halt in trading of its stock was granted.

 

The company requested the move after the Australian Financial Review reported that TPG made a A$766 million ($819 million) takeover bid. TPG reportedly bid $3 a share. Billabong is due to report earnings tomorrow.

 

Below is the request for trading halt filed by Billabong:

 

REQUEST FOR TRADING HALT

 

Pursuant to Listing Rule 17.1, the Company requests a trading halt for a total of two trading days in the ordinary shares of the Company (ASX Code: BBG) to apply from the commencement of trading on Thursday, 16 February 2012 until the commencement of trading on Monday, 20 February 2012, unless the Company requests that it be lifted before that time.

 

The trading halt is requested pending an announcement on the strategic capital structure review announced on Monday, 19 December 2011.

 

For the purposes of Listing Rule 17.1, the Company provides the following information:

 

(a) the trading halt is necessary, as otherwise trading in the Company's ordinary shares would continue on an uninformed basis;

(b) the trading halt should remain in place until the earlier of commencement of trading on Monday, 20 February 2012 and when the Company makes an announcement in relation to the strategic capital structure review; and

(c) the Company is not aware of any reason why the trading halt should not be granted or of any other information necessary to inform the market about the trading halt.

 

Yours sincerely

MARIA MANNING

COMPANY SECRETARY
