I just can’t say for sure because no one at Bloomberg will tell me. I’ll keep trying.As for the “country,” that was a typo on the reporter’s (my) part. I fixed it. Thanks for flagging it.

How does profit margins in the vicinity of Microsoft;s or better strike you? The place oozes money.2) Mike has a right of first refusal in any event. He already bought back one-third of Merrill’s original 30% stake 12-13 years ago.3) Can you clean up your anonymous source’s quotes, for heaven’s sake? “…a privately held country”? Or, was that unexpurgated and thus a reflection of their insight?
