- June 7, 2012 - 9:38 PM
Best Buy founder Richard Schulze said he's exploring his options on how to use or leverage his 20.1 percent stake in the company. Here's what he could do:
• Cut his losses and sell his shares.
• Rally investor support to gain 51 percent of the company's stock and replace the board of directors.
• Launch a "hostile" proxy battle to gain control of the board.
• Persuade private equity firms to raise $9 billion to $12 billion to take Best Buy private.
