MDC is trading at 2.74. What happens to Anomaly, 72, and Crispin if the MDC share goes sub $1 or they go insolvent? Can they buy themselves back or will they be liquidated and or broken up and sold?

Tip: don’t invest in any agency right now

If MDC gets delisted, it doesn’t mean it disappears — it just means it can’t be listed on any stock exchange. Shareholders, Board of Directors, C-Suite, and heads of the agencies will have to figure out the way moving forward, either through sales of the agencies or cost cutting measures or changes in managed or raising funds or fixing whatever is wrong at MDC.

This doesn’t have to do with investing. If you work at one of MDCs firms and MDC collapses what happens to the firms? Also its a good opportunity to poach their clients. Clients hate insecurity in their investments

Agencies aren’t good investments, they move too slow and aren’t really reliable. You might as well invest in something much safer than stocks if you’re going to invest in an agency.

^Disagree, IPG is doing okay. And you can always bet against agencies if you feel risky!

MDC structure many of their deals more like a VC firm vs straight acquisition. The profitable agencies will probably have several good options. The others...

Goldman Sachs looking to get more involved now that the stock is at all time lows. They'll probably come in and sell off all the glamorous agencies to try to pay down the debt. The remaining mdc will be acquired by another holding company. That's my bet.

Interviewing with a small internal strat team (currently 3 FTEs) led by the CSO. One VP was awesome, Ex MBB really energetic/excited is with 1.5 yrs in tenure. Then interviewed with the other VP and Manager. They weren’t great, overall not quite at the same level as the VP in terms of professionalism and pedigree. They were very tactical and felt more like middle managers without vision. The latter two seem to have grown up in the company (3-4 years)
