Greenshoe The greenshoe option is popular because it is one of few SEC-permitted, risk-free means for an underwriter to stabilize the price of a new issue post-pricing. Issuers will sometimes not include a greenshoe option in a transaction when they have a specific objective for the proceeds of the offering and wish to avoid the possibility of raising more money than planned. The term comes from the first company, Green Shoe Manufacturing (now called Stride Rite Corporation),[2] to permit underwriters to use this practice in an offering.

Barack Obama tells EU: boost growth now or face a global crisis Barack Obama is to put pressure on Germany to ease the pain of austerity with policies to boost growth, as he uses two days of talks with the G8 industrial nations to warn Europe that it needs to act swiftly to spare the world economy from a second deep recession in four years. Prior to the G8 summit at Camp David this weekend, a warning from the ratings agency Fitch that Greece's days in the single currency could be numbered heightened fears in Washington that the worsening crisis in the eurozone poses a threat to America's fragile recovery and President Obama's re-election chances. Obama will welcome the new French president, François Hollande, as a potential ally in his push for Europe to follow the US in giving a higher priority to expansionary policies, and as a counterweight to the German chancellor, Angela Merkel. Investors again turned to safe havens, fearing political chaos and economic collapse in Greece having knock-on effects for the global economy.

Working Knowledge ® Point: Create an internal venture fund to incubate revolutionary ideas. Story: This week’s Innovation Summit at the Shell Technology Center Houston (STCH) highlighted the need for innovation and collaboration to solve society’s most pressing challenges.

Greek Tourism Revenues to Shrink 5 pct in 2012 Greek tourism revenues could drop by up to 5 percent in 2012 due to a fall in pre-bookings from Germany, an industry official told Reuters on Wednesday, denting hopes the key sector will help pull the country out of the financial crisis. The Mediterranean nation has been hoping that tourism, which accounts for about 15 percent of GDP and employs roughly a fifth of the country’s 4 million workforce, will boost its bleak economic prospects.
