It's funny. It seems that Russian business slang consists mostly of distorted English words. I know that in USA Russian speakers use a lot of "russified" English words. I didn't know that they do it in Russia too. One particularly funny example is "Valya", which is normally a nickname for Russian names Valentina or Valentin. In the dictionary it means a value of assets :) Although in this case the author doesn't mention the original word "value". Enjoy!
