Roof Over our Heads

by Marguerite Dickson

When Georgia Lane has to leave Boston to live in Lane's Cove, she feels it is the end of everything. Ten years before, when her father was killed in an automobile accident, Mrs. Lane had gone to Boston with six-year-old Georgia and found a job. At sixteen, Georgia is happy in school and in her friendship with Lorraine Fitzgerald. It is a blow to have to leave her busy city life, and go back to a small Maine town. But Mrs. Lane has lost her job, and when Great-aunt Susan Burnham's will leaves the house to Mrs. Lane, there is no choice. It is a roof over their heads. Before they go back, Mrs. Lane courageously tells her daughter the truth. The day Mr. Lane was killed, $10,000 was missing from the bank where he worked. The money was never found, so Mrs. Lane sold their home and turned the money from the sale over to the bank, to cover the loss. Mother and daughter return to a town where people remember what happened. They find good neighbors in old friends, the Aliens. The son, Vee—Vincent Lockwood Allen, IV— is a senior at the high school, where Georgia is a junior. He drives "little George," as he promptly nicknames her, to school every day, along with Mona Fairchild and Curt Kennedy, also neighbors. Mona's antagonism to Georgia,- and her pointed, slighting references to her father, add to Georgia's misery. Herb Small, Great-aunt Susan's nephew, insists that his aunt intended the Burnham house for him, and his efforts to find a missing will to prove this, add to the confusion. Georgia makes a place for herself at school, and in her spare time remodels the old house. Lorraine comes for a summer visit, and the two girls help put on an Ancestors' Fashion Show in town. Uppermost in Georgia's mind, however, is the mystery of the missing $10,000, but every clue leads up a blind alley. She determines to solve the mystery and clear her father's name, and her efforts to do so make a story that builds to a dramatic and a completely logical climax. (12-16) This is a Junior Literary Guild selection, chosen as an out standing book for older readers (B Group).

Stock-Based Compensation at Twitter

by Mike Young Jonas Heese Zeya Yang

"Olivia Nash, an analyst at leading hedge fund BlueShark Capital Management, sat back and popped open a fresh can of Kiwi LaCroix as she looked out the pristine glass window in her office. Olivia was part of BlueShark’s technology sector coverage team, having been with the firm since completing her MBA five years ago. She had just finished listening to the hour-long earnings call for Twitter’s Q4 2017 results. <P> Was Twitter doing well? That depended on which numbers she chose to believe. According to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Twitter had recorded a $108M net loss for 2017. But on the earnings call, CEO Jack Dorsey and CFO Ned Segal had emphasized a slightly different and much better-looking metric: non-GAAP net income of $329M. This adjusted version of net income was a measure Twitter had defined itself when it first went public in 2013. The biggest difference between the two was that Twitter’s non-GAAP net income stripped out stock-based compensation expense."

ESG Metrics: Reshaping Capitalism?

by Jody Grewal George Serafeim

In the past twenty-five years, the world had seen an exponential growth in the number of companies reporting environmental, social and governance (ESG) data. Investor interest in ESG data also grew rapidly. A growing belief that increasing levels of social inequality and natural environment degradation were pressing problems that the capitalist system was failing to resolve had led many stakeholders to advocate for changes in measurement and corporate reporting as a potentially powerful "lever" that could move the discussion from "Reimagining" to "Reshaping" Capitalism. Some suggested that increased transparency could change corporate behavior, increase corporate accountability and lead to better outcomes for employees, customers, the environment and local communities. Others suggested that ESG data were value relevant from an investor standpoint and that firms "doing good would do well." According to this view, investors that used ESG data would be able to make better investment decisions and widespread disclosure of such data would improve market efficiency. However, some commentators doubted the sincerity of company ESG disclosures and suggested that firms that did good were less competitive, and therefore earned lower returns for their shareholders. As the business community entered the second half of the second decade of the twenty first century, whether the widespread adoption of ESG metrics would happen -- and whether, if it did, it would lead to systematic change -- was very much an open question.

Summa Equity: Building Purpose-Driven Organizations

by George Serafeim David Freiberg

In 2015, Reynir Indahl left top Nordic private equity firm Altor Equity Partners to found Summa Equity (Summa). After long contemplation following the financial crisis, Indahl was convinced the financial system was producing negative externalities and that the current private equity model adopted by most firms would no longer be successful. Summa was developed under a new private equity model that sought to "future-proof" businesses by focusing on long term value creation and growth, in addition to traditional private equity practices of implementing best practices and productivity improvements. To find businesses best suited for long term growth with disruptive potential, Summa invested in four thematic areas that were mapped to megatrends outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals - trends Summa believed presented long term growth opportunities for businesses that presented commercial solutions for these challenges. After a period of successful recruiting, fund raising and deal completion, Summa needed to develop a set of practices and expectations across portfolio companies and partners. The case concludes with Indahl making three recommendations to his partners on how to align portfolio company management with Summa, build purpose-driven high performance organizations, and introduce greater clarity in the management processes.

Arlan Hamilton and Backstage Capital

by Sarah Mehta Laura Huang

Frustrated by an inability to convince existing venture capital firms to invest in companies led by women, people of color, and LGBT founders, Arlan Hamilton started her own firm, Backstage Capital, in 2015. Hamilton understood the untapped potential of companies run by underrepresented founders, a group historically excluded from venture capital funding, and was eager to demonstrate the significant returns on investment in such companies. This case explores Hamilton's nontraditional VC background, and her mission to fund startups where at least one founder of the company identifies as a woman, person of color, or LGBT. Now, three years after its founding, Hamilton is considering launching both an accelerator and a fund that will invest exclusively in Black women.

Mavi: Fashioning a Path to Brand Growth

by Jill Avery Gamze Yucaoglu

This case examines the strategic choices and business model with regards to branding at Mavi, a leading Turkish apparel retailer. The case is presented from the perspective of the company CEO and its global brand director who is also part owner. In 2015, Mavi had sales of $419 million, up 20% from the previous year. Growth rates like these were becoming routine at Mavi. But, the path to growth was getting more challenging, and Turkven, Mavi's private equity partner, was planning its options after seven years of investment. There were four growth levers Mavi could pull, but each involved selecting one growth path while neglecting another. Should the company invest in growth domestically or internationally? Should they change the price positioning of the brand to move upmarket or down market? Which value proposition offered the most future promise: functional differentiation, lifestyle differentiation, or celebrity endorsement? Should the company continue to serve both men and women of all ages, or were there specific consumer targets that offered the most promise? Managers realized that these choices would not only determine the company's short-term growth trajectory, but also shape the longer-term value of the Mavi brand.
