    • Keble Worrell appears to have done well. If anyone knows the identities of the shareholders of this company, please email us. The law in Barbados ensures the disclosure of a company’s shareholders, but we have been unable to get any details. The correct procedures requesting this information have been followed, without success. We do know the names of the directors, though. Our documentation shows the following: One in particular, Elneth Kentish, was on the board of directors of both Kingsland Estates and Keble Worrell while these two companies were negotiating the sale of Kingsland Estates land on South Ridge to the same Keble Worrell. She was also a lawyer with R.G. Mandeville, a law firm representing Classic, see the Classic page. She is now a high court judge.
    • We have had numerous questions about Keble Worrell Ltd. the company which paid a $75,000. deposit in 1989 on approximately 16 acres of land on South Ridge which it was purchasing from Kingsland at a price of $1.3 million. On the date of its incorporation Southridge Investments Limited concluded an agreement with Keble Worrell Limited to purchase its interest in the contract for sale with Kingsland Estates Limited. The Keble Worrell contract may still be in force with in the same terms as in 1989, to be passed on to Classic.

    • This minority shareholder first started work at 17 on her father’s first plantation, along with her brother Vere. Her job was to keep house and tend the chickens. She still keeps chickens to this day, and lives a very simple life. She did not want to accept an offer made for her shares by an anonymous buyer. She had been advised that the conditions were so onerous that it was possible she would receive nothing!
    • She thus requested that the board make her the same offer as they were recommending to the other shareholders.
    • She subsequently made a better offer than they had indicated to the board that they were prepared to accept from the anonymous buyer. This offer was refused! What were her choices?
    • She could either sell, remain a minority shareholder with the majority of shares held by the anonymous buyer, or seek the protection of the law.
