Die Aktie soll sich zu einem neuen Stern am CapVenture Himmel entwickeln. Wer kann dazu etwas sagen. Evtl. WKN.
Mit Hilfe einiger bekannter Investoren und gleichzeitig fachkundige Berater hat sich diese Gesellschaft offensichtlich zu einem neuen Geheimtip entwickelt. Wer kann dazu mehr sagen.
Wenn Du uns nicht sagst, um welche Aktie es sich handelt, können wir schlecht was dazu sagen - oder!?

Soll das jetzt Rätselraten sein, oder was? Soll ich WKN tippen gehen?
Toller Beitrag, davon brauchen wir mehr!

Man könnte so auch spitze Analysen betreiben. Keiner weiß um welche aktie es sich handelt!
Sorry, aber ich hatte den Titel der Aktie eingetragen, muss wohl ein Übertragungsfehler gewesen sein. Wird im Nasdaq gehandelt. Habe aber leider keine WKN.
Hier ein kurzer Überblick:
Can Divine InterVentures inspire?

NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- After showing some renewed vigor, the U.S. IPO market will slow down this week because of the July 4 holiday. But there are companies willing to risk an initial public offering. One is Divine InterVentures (DVIN: news, msgs).

With Robertson Stephens as its lead underwriter, the company plans to issue 14.2 million shares at between $13 and $15 apiece.

No, Divine InterVentures is not a religious organization or a cult. But it is a company built on faith -- it’s an Internet incubator. Divine InterVentures provides financing for emerging companies, aiming to see them through to the point of an IPO or merger.

In all, the company’s portfolio consists of 52 start-ups. Of these, 15 are housed within the office facilities of Divine InterVentures. By the way, the facilities are called the Habitat Divine.

Besides cash, Chicago-based Divine InterVentures seeks to provide value-added services. In fact, the company has its own businesses to facilitate these services, such as Sales Divine (sales consulting), Buzz Divine (public relations) and Justice Divine (legal services).

What’s more, the company has an impressive list of backers. They include CMGI, Compaq, Hewlett-Packard, Level 3 and Microsoft. So far, 34 companies are in the development stage. While 30 are generating revenues, only 18 are generating material revenues (that are reportable on financial statements for Divine InterVentures).

Losing money

Given this, it should not be surprising that Divine InterVentures is losing money. Last year, the company lost $9.4 million. In the first quarter of 2000, its losses were $44 million.

Divine InterVentures has 43 people on its board, which could create a nightmare for decision making. Unsurprizingly given its size, the board is composed of a diverse group: Michael Birck was the founder of Tellabs, a communications products and services firm; Jeffrey Jacobs is the president of Harpo Entertainment Group, which is owned by Oprah Winfrey; and then there is ex-Chicago Bull Michael Jordan.

The founder of Divine InterVentures is Andrew Filipowski. “Flip,” as he’s known, is an incredible networker and a noted entrepreneur. The founder of Platinum Software, which was sold to Computer Associates for $3.5 billion, is often seen as the Chicago face of the so-called new economy. See story on the Chicago technology scene.

Demand seems weak

But the demand for the IPO appears to be meager. The IPO has undergone much delay; papers were first filed on Dec. 15, 1999. For the most part, investors are becoming disenchanted with the incubator concept. After all, it is a highly competitive market. It is also risky. Investing in small companies -- especially those losing lots of money -- is no longer popular.

But with the IPO market light this week and the Internet stocks regaining some strength, Divine InterVentures may have a decent IPO. But keep in mind that the firm is young (it was founded in May 1999), and it will likely take several years to see its companies take off.
