Doar ca, exact ca in bancurile cu Chuck Norris, cand isi cumpara Bono smartphone sparge cam 100 de milioane de dolari. Sa aiba ce asorta la ochelari.
Palm Inc., the money-losing maker of the Treo and Centro mobile phones, rose 22 percent in Nasdaq trading after investor Elevation Partners LP agreed to pay $100 million to increase its stake.
Elevation will get preferred stock convertible into common shares at $3.25 each, Palm said today. The price is 31 percent more than Palm’s close Dec. 19. Elevation, whose managing directors include U2 singer Bono and private-equity investor Roger McNamee, bought a 25 percent stake in Palm last year.
