Tash-Murkon Family Assumes Minority Stake in Carthum Conglomerate
Pimebeka - Amarr Certified News is reporting that the Carthum Conglomerate's major shareholders, the Lai Dai Corporation and the Sarum Family, have agreed to a special stock issue for the purpose of raising capital from the Tash-Murkon family. The deal, signed yesterday, gives the Tash-Murkon family a 9% stake in Carthum in return for a cash outlay 5% below the current market price for Conglomerate stock.
However, following Catiz Tash-Murkon's abbreviated visit to Kador Prime last week, the royal house seemed to become much more flexible on the issue, dropping a number of more far-reaching demands. The deal as signed gives the Tash-Murkon family a significant stake in the company and a seat on the board, but for the most part control of the company remains firmly in the hands of the Sarum Family and Lai Dai. Some are speculating the compromise may have been arrived at in order to curry favor with the Empress, but so far neither the Tash-Murkon Family nor the Conglomerate are discussing the deal.
