    Anyone know what happened to Algeria settlement?

    When did our board realize the "Arab spring events" were known by the visiting billionaire well ahead of them and they could've bought his assets for pennies on the dollar if they were more tuned to the cultural issues? Would any board member voluntarily put VIP assets on the line to be part of the Algeria issue? Makes one wonder if perhaps some money changed hands in advance of the decison which IMHO took VIP down from a premier company to a struggling, board in-fighting problem child.
    Been long a real long time and not happy about it. Hope they can turn this around or turn it over to better managers!
