Actually, I read a snippet in an Indian newspaper this morning (sorry, no longer have the link) that the MoU is already in place and the buyer is a consortium of some kind. If true, we should know more soon.

DLF is planning to conclude and complete its sale of Aman Resorts probably by July, reports CNBC-TV18's Nayantara Rai quoting sources

likely to sign an exclusive MoU with one of these parties by the end of [May] That will be followed by a final due diligence stage process
supposedly MoU did not happen by the end of May, it happened at the beginning of July, so about one month off. one month off July completion means August or September completion, depending on whether they were suggesting beginning or end of July originally.

Published on Wed, Jul 04, 2012

In a CNBC-TV18 exclusive, Nayantara Rai learns from sources that DLF has entered into an MoU for selling Aman Resorts.

Sources say they have entered into an MoU with an international consortium which is made up of private equity players as well as hospitality players. The deal is said to be a minimum 15-20 days away [July 19-24]

experts feel DLF would have chosen this consortium because perhaps with this consortium they will be getting the money faster
basically saying late july / early august

im curious what is being said on investor conference calls

going back to indian media (and govt) right from current aman/DLF reporter herself >

When we were at Ruya this summer the GM told us they had a plan to build a number of villas. In fact on our first day there were potential investors from the US there on this topic.

Wow. Fantastic job. For me it is great this way. Thanks! I miss my Sveti Stefan report, but maybe it is within another thread.

Correction: Found the Sveti Stefan report, it is within Londonjetsetters thread.
