Camelot Event-Driven Advisors Issues Letter to Board of Directors of SINA Corp.

Dec 4, 2020

Maumee, Dec 4, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - Camelot Event-Driven Advisors LLC ("CEDA"), on behalf of a fund managed by it, sent the following letter to the Board of Directors of SINA Corp. ("SINA" or the "Company"), regarding the proposed going-private transaction of the Company. As discussed in more detail in the letter, CEDA believes that proposed merger prices value the Company at less than its fair value. The text of the letter is set forth below. Camelot Event-Driven Advisors LLC 1700 Woodlands Drive Maumee, OH 43537 U.S.A.     Messrs. Charles Chao, Ter Fung Tsao, Yan Wang, Song-Yi Zhang, Yichen Zhang, James Jianzhang Liang, No. 8 SINA Plaza, Courtyard 10, the West Xibeiwang E. Road, Haidian District Beijing 100193, People's Republic of China   VIA FACSIMILE TO +86 10 8260 7166   December 3, 2020 Dear Members of the Board of Directors,   We were surprised by the announcement of the acquisition of SINA Corporation by a consortium led by Chairman Charles Chao, first proposed on July 6th of this year, because it was not clear from the company's public filings that it was looking for strategic alternatives. We assume that you were just as surprised as we were. While we recognize that the special committee of the board that was formed subsequently to Mr. Chao's proposal has negotiated an improvement of the acquisition price from the initial $41 per share to the current $43.30 per share, we also note that this price is, in our view, nowhere near the value of the underlying assets. We also note that the preliminary proxy shows that the special committee, consisting of Mr. Song Yi Zhang, Mr. Yichen Zhang and Mr. Yan Wang, considered including customary protections for shareholders, in particular the requirement of an approval by the majority of minority shareholders and market checks. However, these customary shareholder protections were nixed after Mr. Chao's buyer group pushed back. We take that as a clear sign that either the members of the special committee lack backbone and are not qualified to serve as independent directors, or that the special committee was independent on paper only and in practice acted under the influence of the controlling shareholder. With Chairman Chao controlling 61% of the vote despite only a 14% economic interest, a high level of shareholder protection would be appropriate. In particular, we note that the dual-class voting structure was introduced in 2017 only after another shareholder had attempted to gain board representation. We believe that the board has a track record of disenfranchising outside shareholders, which is culminating in the current deal at too low a valuation.   We note that as of November 24, each share of Weibo is closed at $45.45 on the NASDAQ, more specifically its depositary receipts that represent one shares each. With SINA owning 101,778,958 shares of Weibo Class B stock, the total value of that stake is worth $4,580,053,110 or $76.67 per share of SINA[1]. In addition, the company, holds other investments valued by its investment banker, Morgan Stanley, at between $940 million and $1.504 billion, or $15-25 per share, plus net cash that we estimate to amount to another $5 per share. This means that total NAV per share may amount to nearly $100 per share, more than twice what shareholders will receive.   Given the stark discrepancy between the value of the company and what shareholders will receive, we will recommend to our clients, including our mutual fund, to exercise dissenters' rights and seek full value for their shares in court in the Cayman Isles, where the company is incorporated. We have significant experience in achieving full value through such court-supervised valuation not only in Cayman but also Delaware, Texas, Austria and Germany, and expect to receive full value from the court, if the board is unable or unwilling to fulfill its duty to obtain fair value for the shareholders for whom they serve.   Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.   Yours sincerely, Camelot Event-Driven Advisors, LLC Thomas Kirchner, CFA                            Paul Hoffmeister Managing Member                                    Managing Member   [1] Based on 59,733,728 shares of SINA outstanding as of 9/20/20, according to Charles Chao's filing on form 13D on 9/28/20. Ownership of 101,778,958 shares of Weibo is based on the company's filing on Form 20-F as of 12/31/19.     The information contained in this press release (the "Information") is based on publicly available information about SINA, which has not been independently verified by CEDA.

Due to 'Weird Virus', Kids' Wish Lists Aren't Reaching Santa in Time for Christmas

Dec 4, 2020

Santa declares a State of Emergency, will call each child PERSONALLY.Sioux City, Dec 4, 2020 (Issuewire.com) - North Pole Elves have reported that they may have some guessing to do when packing Santa's sleigh this Christmas.  Due to millions of families avoiding crowded malls and parades, where they typically visit Santa, children's wish lists aren't coming in as they normally do. This has really put a kink in North Pole operations. Thankfully, Santa Claus has taken notice and responded by declaring the State of Emergency. This year, he has decided he will talk to the children, personally... not by zoom, or by text, or computer.  The REAL Santa will use his good old-fashioned telephone to call children. Undercover Elf, Anne Gaskell, founder of Santa Speaking Live, and keeper of Santa's phone schedule, says 'This could have potentially been a dire situation on Christmas Eve for everyone. We Elves have a LOT of toys to make and distribute in a few weeks. It's very difficult if we have to guess what the children want. We don't want to disappoint the children, and we are grateful that Santa has agreed to step in to call all of the children. While it's not an easy feat to call every child in the world, Santa has great phone service. His phone schedule is kept by Santa Speaking Live, so Santa calls are made DIRECTLY from the North Pole, the caller ID says so.   Santa always has his phone and wherever he is... in the reindeer barn (hear their bells), in the kitchen with Mrs. Claus baking (listen to Mrs. Claus scold Santa for eating too many cookies!), or even out with Frosty having a snowball fight. Children may even hear Santa tell a knock-knock joke, or sing a Christmas carol along with him.  The calls are also recorded as a keepsake.  Recordings capture a bit more than what children experience during the call including Santa's call prep - hear him humming, talking to Mrs. Claus, and asking for more cookies, and also after the call, families are able to hear Santa's comments after he gets off the phone.   Here's how to schedule: Visit Santa's website, select a date and time, provide a few details to personalize the experience and Santa will handle the rest.  When Santa calls, he will know all that he SHOULD know.  Calls are also recorded as a keepsake. Price of calls begins at $24.95 for 3-5 minutes, recordings of calls can be purchased for $10.   About Santa Speaking Live: Founded in 2004, and re-founded in 2020 by Mom Anne Gaskell.  Santa Speaking Live has provided over 200,000 phone calls between 2004-2010 and has been featured on TODAY, Good Morning America, CNN, Fox and Friends, Wall St. Journal, New York Times, and Rachel Ray.   Media ContactSanta Speaking Liveannie@santaspeaking.live712-899-2054http://www.santaspeaking.live Source :Santa Speaking Live This article was originally published by IssueWire.
