well the thread title was "DR.DRE sells 51% to HTC for 200mill"


so i a.ssumed Dre pocketed 300mill
you're not factoring in his agents cut (if he has one im sure he does) and not to mention taxes.

nice move by dre. he'll probably pocket close to a 100 milli, judging by the fact 50 sold his stake for 400 milli and pocketed 100 milli.

looks like he will not have any attachments to the company as far as major decision making?

Business is business. Had Dre held onto it he might not have reached the next level with it. The headphone game is getting way oversaturated as everyone and their mother is coming out with a pair of cans these days. Very smart move on his part because I guarantee the company wouldn't have been worth as much in a couple years. And he still owns 49% with his partners. This deal allows them to expand and build the company. The real reason black men don't own sh*t is because when it comes to business most don't know when to say when.

Smart. Headphone market is becoming oversaturated. There's Diddy's beats, 50's beats, Ludacris, Jay-Z.

HTC products are about to have amazing sound. They should start with revamping the Evo 3D, the speaker is horrible.

No they paid the 300mil for a 51% stake and Jimmy and Dre will still get a share of the 49% of the companies profits from now on, biggest deal a rapper has done basically
