Henry Kravis: How the Corporate Titan Rocked Wall Street

Birt 3 jún 2014
Nov. 12 (Bloomberg) -- His name is synonymous with 'Corporate Titan.' As co-founder of KKR, Henry Kravis re-wrote the rules of leveraged buyouts; he and his cousin George Roberts now rule over an empire that dwarfs some of the world's mightiest public corporations. "Bloomberg Game Changers" follows Kravis' rise from his early days in 'bootstrap' acquisitions, through his role in the 1988 landmark LBO of RJR-Nabisco, to KKR's IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.

  • The testy pyjama spindly need because cockroach basally walk off a chunky bird. obsequious, maniacal laugh

  • I guess this shows why people still distrust finance and wall street: instead of making money inovating and catering to peoples need, they "fix and sell" companies, that in practice means paper and spreedsheets, cero product development, cero consumer satisfaction improvement. A financial deal takes places outside consumer market, and in complex market, where numbers - not products - are the only metric.

  • While this is very useful information, I seem to have drifted from interests in stocks and wall street investment and delved into the cryptocurrency world. It was very rough in the beginning as yo had to be your own analyst broker and trader at the same time. Leading me to lose lots of investment until my research lead me to "Lance Bergel aka Cryptomint3r". I experience miracle after I meet him and followed his recommendations. My overall portfolio at some point went up 1250%. I invested $850 into most of Lance Bergel's recommendations and slept well at night. My biggest gain so far was when I invested around $12K into Lance recommendations and as of today they're worth over $239K. Lance, you have taken a was my financial worries over our situation and I am really really grateful. My daughter began her own asymmetrical investing with Lance Bergel and I suspect it will change her life for the better. I just cant wait. If you want to contact Lance Bergel, write to Cryptomint3r@gmailcom... Always grateful to Lance

  • sounds like useless cancer, this guy.

  • EVIL

  • Not sure why it is necessary to portray him in a sympathetic light given that the only he did primarily was mostly for himself.

  • Trump: He was a very very basic guy with a brilliant mind.

  • He looks evil.

  • He's a LEGEND

  • Wow I’ve never known trump to be in a Bloomberg special

  • Money and morals don't go hand-in-hand

  • Just glossed over the fact that the debt from the lbo crushed Houdaille. KKR still profited through their fees. Didn't matter to KKR if the deal was successful or not. They make a nice chunk up front.

  • Henry Kravis is a LEGEND!

  • You know you're in trouble when the world's biggest asshole Trump is singing your praises.

  • “Trump never had the makings of a Varsity athlete” - Henry Kravis

  • People seem furious about his deeds. Well I must say it is a well presented opportunity to take. Out here starting from the ground up investing with a well paid remunerative firm in America is the right place to be for now. Afx_solution on telegram offers great investing service

    • Trying to do something that everyone says wasn’t possible, andres I have been able to think through your methods of earning online. After my trading conclusion with afx solution I have witness the benefits for myself. I remain grateful for your help.

  • 让我握手元音化

  • He looks evil....

  • Absolutely gripping. Great production.

  • (Structural adjustment programs are basically LBOs of governments, both are useful tools in trust building, لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله)

  • A high point of my brief career in bigleague accounting was as a junior on a Thorne Ernst and Whinney audit of Nabisco, which was then in Henry Kravis's hands, coming or going or some damn thing, I forget. Immediately before joining Thorne Ernst I had worked as an accounting temp for agencies up and down Bay Street, and one of my jobs had been for Nabisco. An important role of the temp industry is doing the dirty work that in-house employees can't be allowed to be seen doing. An example of this is the, uh, "editing" of Nabisco's sales forecasts. These are of truly amazing accuracy, but no boss would want to tell his staff "I want you to revise all last month's forecasts to make them comply with this month's facts." That's what temps are for -- and that's one of the things I had been doing for Nabisco while I was a university student doing my accountancy degree. So along comes the Nabisco file. Lloyd-Jones briefs his seniors on how Nabisco's books are cooked. Thorne Ernst seniors tell your little junior to just shut up. 'Course I'm still around, but Thorne Ernst and Whinney have gone where the bind-weed twines. One reason, perhaps not the main reason but a contributing factor, why the Big Eight accounting firms are now the Big Four or Big Three or who the hell is counting, is that they were crooked from top to bottom. One of the reasons we had crashes in 1991 and 2008 and... is that all these people spend a great deal of their time lying to one another, and a lot more trying to cover it up.

  • There should be a movie on KKR and Henry Kravis.

    • @Samuel Mani there are actually two versions of the movie, and i heard a documentary, but maybe thats what this is.

    • @upchuck619 Thanks, I will try to get that book and movie 😊❤

    • there is 'Barbarians at the Gate' the book and movie. While not only on them, they are central figures

  • ONE OF THE BEST PERSON I KNOW REALLY A FABULOUS MAN AND GEORGE R. ROBERTS AND FAMILY ALWAYS IN MY PRAYERS EMILY

  • Low valuation is the key!!!

  • TLC, Inc. - Reginald F. Lewis did the deal on Beatrice Foods. He was the point man...There’s an entire book written about it. Huge blunder on Bloomberg’s part for failing to mention his name.

    • Your absolutely correct, Harvard Law named a building after him in regards. What a complete oversight!!

  • Impeach him!!

  • Documentary about a thief.

    • A thief in finance would be Madoff; Kravis operated far into the moral gray area but made his money through a well thought out novel business idea. He may be a questionable person but the majority of profits he made were on highly audited, highly public transactions where forgery/theft would be next to impossible.

  • Hi. I am your new friend. Please support 🙏

  • Henry Kravis and George Roberts took the vast horde of tax evasion dollars and destroyed America's pension system. When Houdaille Industries was taken private, the US corporate pension system had a multi-billion dollar surplus. Today, it has a neatly $4 trillion deficit. Mr. Kravis was funded by teachers pension systems throughout the USA and the Vatican via Liechtenstein, Belgium and Luxembourg.
