Nigel Perkins has just formed a new company called Limited». The initials stand for «Atlantic and Mediterranean Yachting». The company hasn’t started its activity yet because it doesn’t own a single yacht. However, Nigel has sent Paul Schwartz to Corsica to buy out die shares that the Turqui family owns in the company that his son, Ronny, is trying to control. Paul Schwartz is authorized to offer the Turqui family four million dollars for their 50% of the company. Nigel’s sure they 11 sell out as it would represent a two million-dollar profit for the family. They would have to be crazy to turn it down. This way, Nigel can get Ronny out of what could possibly end up being a dangerous business relationship. His son doesn’t know anything yet and Nigel doesn’t intend to mention anything until he feels it’s appropriate. In the meantime, he’s hired the help of two wealthy friends of his who are members of the British Yachting Association. They will contact Ronny in a couple of weeks to inform him of their purchase of the Turqui shares. They will make no mention of Nigel Perkins.
Ronny will stay on as managing director of the company and Paul Schwartz will join the organization as operations manager. Besides the four million dollars Nigel plans to pay the Turqui family to get them out of the way, he’ll probably spend another million organizing and staffing the new company. He’ll do everything from behind the scenes. He’s sure that Ronny will eventually figure out who’s behind the new partner, but by that time, the company should be running efficiently.
