Hey whatever happens he's come a long way from raising chickens and battling discrimination in a society that can be unforgiving.

The article didn't mention that Son lost more money than any man in history during the meltdown, 70 billion! a record that wasn't broken until Musk's twitter debacle.

Quit while you’re ahead!

He's not ahead. He's hoping this IPO will salvage his very tattered reputation.

"My hair is not receding. I'm advancing."

And in other news, he is quoted as saying: "Hage JoHo. Kyo wa hage, tokidoki komari da"

Personally, I like the guy and what the does. But I have some inside stories I could tell you about him renting out large restaurants and hotel floors just for him, a friend, and a family member of mine.

We will see some good stuff come from him. Smart man.

In the past two years Softbank has reported losses of around $20 billion.

He's a supremo douche running a repugnant company. At this rate they'll be out of business.

Rare success indeed, the SoftBank fund is a joke in what they invest in.

Desperate for cash as he's leveraged up on loads of losing positions/investments. Strange that they are allowing an IPO of only 10 percent of all outstanding ARM shares. Would not touch with a ten foot pole.
