I'm sure Larry Ellison is much more likely to be involved in this now that a preliminary meeting arranged by a mutual friend was leaked and he becomes subject to media scrutiny down there. That's just how rich guys like to roll. They love to be referred to as whales and don't consider the term derogatory at all. Most importantly the really wealthy always appreciate being involved in media sideshows with every day press conferences announcing every insignificant move.
Ellison has taken a pass. Sorry to Carmichael Dave.
