Seamus and Xie-Po walk down a corridor, leaving a bemused Peng-Bo in their wake.
Seamus: As I recall your uncle telling me, you have generally been a prudent money manager.
Seamus: As I also recall, your late cousin had rather -- expensive tastes in entertainment, yes?
Xie-Po: It ... it was always thus, despite our uncle's admonitions.
Seamus and Xie-Po continue walking along. Xie-Po wonders where this conversation is going.
Seamus: And yet most of Po's wealth was invested in real estate, manufacturing, and technology bonds.
Seamus: I gather there was little in the way of liquid assets.
Xie-Po: I cannot deny it.
They continue walking.
Seamus: No doubt you viewed my project, highly speculative and shrouded in secrecy, as the best candidate for conversion to the cash you required.
Xie-Po: You are perceptive, Dr. O'Murchadha.
They stop before a large window looking out upon the setting sun. Xie-Po looks at Seamus with piqued interest.
Seamus: Please call me Seamus.
Seamus: As you have learned, those shares are difficult to sell.
Seamus: But what if I told you about another buyer, who would not be subject to the requirement of unanimous shareholder approval?
