Example text

48–49) The existence but not the extent of related party transactions was disclosed. In 2000 and 1999, Enron entered into transactions with limited partnerships (the Related Party) whose general partner’s managing member is a senior officer of Enron. The limited partners of the Related Party are unrelated to Enron. Management believes that the terms of the transactions with the Related Party were reasonable compared to those which could have been negotiated with unrelated third parties. The “hedging” of Enron’s merchant investments is a significant contributor to Enron’s collapse.

Also, Enron contributed a put option to a trust in which the Related Party and Whitewing hold equity and debt interests. On 31 December 2000, the fair value of the put option resulted in a $36 million loss to Enron. There was an internal Arthur Andersen communication in February 2001 that “suggests that Andersen may have had concerns about the disclosures of the related-party transactions in the financial statement footnotes. Andersen did not express such concerns to the Board” (p. 203 of the Powers Report).

Is that really funds flow or is it cash from equity issuance? We have recognized over $550 million of fair value gains on stocks via our swaps with Raptor. Much of that stock has declined significantly – Avici by 98 percent from $178 million, to $5 million; the New Power Company by 80 percent from $40 a share, to $6 a share. The value in the swaps won’t be there for Raptor, so once again Enron will issue stock to offset these losses. Raptor is an LJM entity. It sure looks to the layman on the street that we are hiding losses in a related company and will compensate that company with Enron stock in the future.
