IN A statement late last night the FNM said that, unlike the "secrecy" surrounding the PLP's agreement to sell BTC to Blue Water, when the terms now being negotiated for the sale of 51 per cent interest in BTC to Cable and Wireless have been completed, Bahamians will be informed before the required vote in parliament.

After nearly a year of unwanted attention, billionaire Louis Bacon has put his luxury Lyford Cay estate up for sale.
Point House, Bacon’s sprawling ultra-opulent 3.38 acre property, is going for $35 million, according to Sotheby’s International Realty.
Not that Bacon needs the money. He controls one of the world’s largest and most profitable hedge funds and is a billionaire many times over.
Point House, however, was repeatedly highlighted in the press in 2010.
More times, perhaps, than the privacy-loving financier would have liked.
Bacon has also been engaged in a long-standing feud with his neighbor, Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard, who is suing him over a property d ...

Delays in opening its $7 million second store on Prince Charles Drive have cost Robin Hood a "substantial" sum that is "certainly in the seven figures", its principal told Tribune Business yesterday, adding that he was "very hopeful" it would open imminently.
The expansive Bahamas-based retailer had hoped to open in time to catch the Christmas and New Year shopping season, a period that often accounts for up to 40-50 per cent of some stores' annual sales revenues, but Tribune Business sources suggested the opening was delayed by the need to comply with requirements stipulated by the Ministry of Works and other government agenci ...
