I told you little pumpers it was being slowed down by rusals team....thats the word...it will get done but rusal just hasnt been cracking the whip on it nor did they assign their top level junior team to structure the details before it goes on to the higher ups...ive heard orbites team is top shelf but that rusal just doesnt move at the same pace...

 

all deals start with lower level functionaries who put all the structural details together (tax implications, how to carefully structure things with room and flexibility for each side to win AND be scalable over time, jurisdictions, international laws, profit splits, etc..etc..etc...)  ...answer each others questions back and forth, etc, before it gets sent on to the higher ups for clarifications, discussions and eventually, sign off... 

 

sorry folks...looks like more patience is required...I expect to hear something maybe in march-april...I really thought the deal was done around 2 months ago around the time of apec...
