My western friends would leave me if I were openly crooked. There are no such consequences in India. “Friends” in India would respect you for your crookedness if you can get away with it. And there is no social opprobrium. No wonder crookedness grows like a weed in India. Here is a conversation with Richard Kary:
In the past, I have followed and written about Riverside Resources (RRI; C$0.135) and its CEO, John-Mark Staude. RRI is a project generation company and a very innovative one. They have several projects in Mexico, the USA, and Canada. They have C$5 million in cash and equities, making their enterprise value C$5 million, rather low for a company that has an interesting agreement with BHP, which will fund US$6.5 million in drilling two projects and generative work over the next year. RRI gets to charge a 10% fee on the expenses made, which enables it to sometimes reduce its corporate cash burn to zero. While BHP funds the projects, RRI gets to keep at least 20% ownership—100% if BHP decides not to pursue any project.
A major investor recently liquidated his position in RRI, the reason why it has fallen a lot. That is my opportunity to add to my position.
