Equity

Synopsis: Naomi Bishop is an investment banker determined to overcome a previous stain to her professional reputation, which is a challenge in the male dominated financial sector she works in. As Naomi in that spirit makes her move managing a burgeoning new tech IPO, she has to endure not only the condescension of her colleagues, but also her imperious client even as troubling new developments cloud the venture's future. Against that, the probing of a college friend turned Federal investment law prosecutor and the conniving of her double-dealing boyfriend seem to be manageable complications, until a betrayal by a trusted colleague threatens to ruin everything.

[BELL RINGING

AND CROWD CHEERING]

MAN 1:
The entire market is watching.

WOMAN 1:
Back with Dynacorps' CEO.

You must be very happy

with this news--

MAN 2:
This runaway hit

that is the Dynacorps [PO--

MAN 3:
Take a look at the evaluation,

I 'm really doubtful--

MAN 2:
So a great day for Dynacorps

and for the bankers at Gemini Trust--

WOMAN 2:

You'll understand--

WOMAN 1:

--is climbing rapidly upwards today.

WOMAN 3 [ON TV]:

--moving broadly higher at this hour...

...with utility and tech shares

leading the gains.

But there is really

only one story out there...

...that everybody

in the market is watching...

...and that is the Dynacorps IPO.

This truly is a historic day.

We knew

from the road show...

...the demand for the stock

was going to be strong.

We expected to see a pop

at the open.

But nobody thought Dynacorps

would soar like this...

...all the way to 47,

and it looks like it is still climbing...

...at this hour,

so a much better debut...

...than investors could have hoped for.

Of course, with this kind of move...

...you wonder whether the stock

may have been mispriced...

...whether or not perhaps they left

a little money on the table.

We know that they actually

switched underwriters...

...going into this IPO, so there

was a bit of concern...

...about how things would shake

up, but clearly Dynacorps' IPO...

...is shaping up to be

one of the most successful...

...public offerings of the year.

[CLEARS THROAT]

NEEL:

So what happened with Dynacorps?

Neel, I have taken nine Silicon Valley

companies public in the last five years...

...and you want to talk about

the one I didn't take to the finish line?

I work for the largest

investment bank in the world.

We both know

I found you guys capital...

...when you were just a couple kids

with a laptop and a dream.

So we can talk about Dynacorps...

...or we can talk about you...

...and how I'm gonna

grow your company...

...so you can build technology

that will transform people's lives.

- Try the Tasmanian sea trout.

- Yeah, maybe I should.

Qlay-

Qlay-

[KNOCK ON DOOR]

- Hi.

- Hi. I saw the e-mail from Neel.

Mm. He does love to play hard to get.

Everyone likes to think

their company's a unicorn.

- You read up on the other companies?

- Yeah, so I was looking at--

Cachet? I have a hunch

they're looking to expand.

You've got the numbers on them?

I will bring them right over.

Great.

[TYPING ON KEYBOARD]

Yeah?

Everyone's saying there's gonna be

some movement around here.

So I'm wondering

if now might be the time...

-...to talk about that promotion?

- No.

Now is not the right time.

HR is out there

snatching blackberries.

I get that. But I've been

under-compensated two years in a row--

Erin, I told you I'd make a push

for you, and I will. But it is a down year.

I do need those numbers ASAP.

Vi

[CHATTERING]

Naomi?

Excuse me.

Sam, hi.

L-- You know, I meant to reach out

when I heard you were doing this, but I--

I thought you hated alumni events.

Well...

- But I think this is important.

- Yeah.

I think these girls look at me

as what not to do.

How to go to law school

and still end up broke.

Well, I'm sure there must be

one young idealist in here somewhere.

I hope so. Heh.

So how are you? How are things?

Are you still at the U.S. Attorney's Office

locking up drug dealers?

I am. Uh, I'm actually in your area now.

White-collar crime, uh, securities.

Wow, that's quite a change.

And you're at Remson still?

I'm a lifer.

Golden handcuffs.
