Interview with Victor Basta

Victor Basta is a maestro of mergers and acquisitions in the IT sector.  He says he is somebody who helps other people through deals rather than doing deals himself.  He believes that the best businesses are boring businesses who manage to change the routines of business with IT.  He became Managing Director of Magister, a boutique investment bank based in London and San Francisco.  His first deal was selling LoveFilm to Amazon for around $350 million, now Amazon Prime Video.  He describes his largest mistake is turning down a billion dollars, twice.
