The Stone Cold Certain Jitney Company

Grand Hyatt Hotel,
P O Box 4546/JKT 10045,
Jakarta, Indonesia

I figure something is wrong when I fall off the plane here in Jakarta and a guy shows up to meet me with a jitney, I mean, I do not insist on stretch limos and deferential drivers in peaked hats, but I do expect four wheels, and when I climb in I find I have to share with a kinda pursed up type who says he is from Price Waterhouse and they foreclose on it.

Mom, this comes straight from one of Holey Buckett's bright ideas, we dig it out when we set up the due diligence on Hillboot Intergalactic ahead of our clearance sale there, tho' I must admit no-one yet knocks us down in the rush to exchange, quite a few investment banking units on the market at this time are hanging fire, and some investment bankers, too.

Anyhow, our guys are crawling through the Hillboot books and they unearth a mixed bag of assets, like some fishing rights Holey says are long term holds and good for corporate entertaining in the meantime, in the season he tries them out, and next to these fish are the convertible bonds of the Stone Cold Certain Jitney Company of Jakarta, Indonesia.
