Bloomberg was founded on 1st October 1981 with the company name Innovative Market Systems (IMS) by Michael Bloomberg, Thomas Secunda, Duncan MacMillan & Charles Zegar.
In 1981, Salomon Brothers was acquired and Michael Bloomberg received $10 Million for his equity in Salomon Brothers. Having designed the Salomon Brothers’ in-house financial system, he used his $10 million to start Innovative Market Systems (IMS). IMS provides real-time market data, financial calculations and analytics. In 1983, Merrill Lynch invested $30 million for a 30% equity in IMS to develop the Bloomberg Terminal.
Fun Facts About Michael Bloomberg:
Largest Shareholder of Bloomberg L.P.
Mayor of New York City since 2001
Born on Valentines’ day 14th February 1942
His Fortune is estimated at $36.5 Billion by Forbes in 2013
This makes him the 10th richest person in the United States and the 13th wealthiest in the world
By 1986, 5,000 terminals had been installed in user’s offices. The company changed the name formally from Innovative Market Systems to Bloomberg L.P.
Between 1986 to 1993, Bloomberg Tradebook, Bloomberg Messaging Service, Bloomberg newswire and bloomberg.com were launched.
In late 1996, Bloomberg executed a 10% buyout of Merrill Lynch stake in Bloomberg L.P. for $200 million. This valued the company at $2 billion and Merrill Lynch share is reduced to 20%. (Merrill Lynch had owned 30% during their 1983 investment to finance the Bloomberg Terminal).
During the financial crisis in 2008, Merrill Lynch sold the remaining 20% to Bloomberg Inc (vehicle that manages Michael’s Bloomberg assets) for a reported $4.43 billion. The transaction valued Bloomberg L.P. at $22.5 billion.
