Baha Mar issues statement on CCA press release - Jul 27, 2015 - 11:47:17 AM

Nassau, Bahamas (July 27, 2015) – Baha Mar Ltd. issued the following statement with regard to CCA Bahamas’ (“CCA”) press release dated July 26:
 
“It is interesting that when a very viable proposal is put forward by Baha Mar Ltd. to the Export-Import Bank of China—a proposal which provides for a significant equity infusion by the Izmirlian family to complete and open Baha Mar and would utilize Bahamian contractors and a Bahamian workforce to properly finish the work at Baha Mar that CCA failed to do—CCA issues a highly defensive and apparently panicky press release. CCA should be concerned. No matter how CCA tries to spin it and no matter how often it tries to deflect from its lack of responsibility, it cannot cover up the sad pattern of its failing to perform properly at Baha Mar and other important projects in The Bahamas as well. CCA in its release cites not a viable proposal on its part but rather a distortion of an old posture that made discussions to negotiate a consensual resolution with it as one of the parties a sham. It is why we came forward...
