• PAUL ALLEN SELLS DreamWorks Shares
• • Paul Allen, Vivendi and Lee Entertainment will sell $500 million worth five months after IPO
• • DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., creator of the "Shrek" films, said shareholders including Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen planned to sell $500 million of stock five months after the company issued stock to the public.
• • Allen, Lee Entertainment and Vivendi Universal will sell shares after the May 27 release of the film "Madagascar," Glendale-based DreamWorks Animation said in a filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
• • Allen, 52, is taking advantage of an almost 40% increase in DreamWorks Animation's shares since the company's October initial public offering. The gain comes amid declines in some of the billionaire's other investments, including cable television companies Charter Communications Inc. and RCN Corp.
• • "I don't think he had intended to be a long-term holder when he made his investment in DreamWorks," said Marla Backer, an analyst at Soleil Securities Group Inc. in New York.
• • "It was venture capital-like money."
• • Allen's Vulcan Ventures invested more than $600 million for a 24% stake in DreamWorks SKG, the media company founded in 1994 by Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg. That made Allen the biggest holder in the closely held company, which has produced Oscar-winning movies including "Gladiator" and "American Beauty."
• • The founders separated the company's live-action and music businesses from its animation unit last year, raising $812 million in the DreamWorks Animation IPO. The studio last year released "Shrek 2," which became the most successful animated film ever, taking in $918.5 million at box offices worldwide.
• • DreamWorks shares rose 13 cents to $39.67 on the New York Stock Exchange. The stock has risen 42% since its first day of trading Oct. 27.
• • Allen was allocated 34.6 million DreamWorks Animation Class A shares as part of the company's public offering. He sold 4.9 million shares in November for $137.3 million. Lee, an affiliate of South Korea's CJ Entertainment, received 5.7 million shares and Vivendi Universal got 2.7 million at the time of the IPO.
• • Allen is selling 9.87 million of DreamWorks Animation shares, Lee is shedding 1.57 million and Vivendi Universal 1.26 million shares, according to the regulatory filing.

Paul Allen Lifetime Achievement & His Family Endowment Fund

OVER TWENTY FIVE YEARS AGO, that's when a Honeywell engineer living in Boston was browsing through the January issue of Popular Electronics, when he noticed a story about the MITS Altair 8800, the first well-publicized personal computer.
-----He went to a high school friend, then attending Harvard, and suggested they port a version of the BASIC language that they had written in high school to this new machine.
-----The two men were Paul Allen and Bill Gates, and the rest, of course, is history. The company they created to sell that software was Microsoft, undoubtedly the most influential force in the history of personal computing.
-----Even when others were focusing on hardware, Gates and Allen had a vision of software as a force of crucial importance in the computer industry and as a potentially huge business. Soon, the company was selling BASIC and other languages on many different platforms. In 1980, IBM hired Microsoft to produce PC-DOS, an OS that Microsoft resold as MS-DOS.
-----From there, Microsoft's successes have been legendary. It was one of the first companies to aggressively develop Macintosh software, giving it an entry into the design of products for environments with a graphical user interface. A]ong the way, the company broadenedits line to include everything from operating systems to entertainment software.
-----Not everything was successful immediately, but Microsoft gained a deserved reputation as an extremely tough and aggressive company that would try and try again.
-----Perhaps its greatest success has been in moving the entire PC industry from the character-oriented world of DOS to the graphical world of Windows. which first shipped ten years ago. Despite limited initial success and competition from other graphical systems, Microsoft continued developing Windows. Its runaway success began with Windows 3.0 released in May 1990, and it has reached new heights in the Windows 95 juggernaut we saw this year.
-----Microsoft leveraged its successes into other areas as well, combining its Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access products into the awesomely successful Microsoft Office applications suite. It has also created a huge line of consumer titles.

About Paul Allen and the Bill Gates / Microsoft Link
When Allen teamed up with Gates that Microsoft was created.
----- Allen was born on January 21, 1953 in Seattle and met Gates at Lakeside prep school when they were both students attending the school. Lakeside prep had recently decided to acquaint its students with the world of computers, but, since computers were extremely expensive, had a fundraiser to purchase computer time on a DEC PDP-10 owned by General Electric.
----- It was on this computer that Gates, Allen, and a few other Lakeside students discovered computing, and, soon thereafter, programming. The young boys used up all the computing time the school had purchased and began falling behind in their classes.
