it's called cut your losses and run. the article stated that this year had netted loses. i guess he is trying to get out before he loses anymore. after all, he was the primary investor which in the video if i am not mistaken he stated that to get this A1 grand prix off the ground takes 100's of millions of dollars. he did not state his part, but i bet it was over 100 million.

It might be also because he had problems within the company with investors?
there might be so many reasons but the last thing i think is the losses
It was his idea i don't think he would let go easily.....
i am sure there were problems ....
The A1 had alot of success.... and the idea is much better than F1 thats country against country... just like the world cup for football its much more excitement...
I am sure F1 being in business for the last 50 years wouldn't want a competitor.... so they would do anything to breakdowm A1....
A1 showed alot of success.....
and i don't think there were any losses....But i am sure there was dirty business against the company....
if it was cutting losses all the investors would also leave and close down the company...
i don't think he is more clever than him and he would leave and they would stay....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
definatley that wan't the reason....
the race is starting in holand

29/09/2006 - Satisfied with his motorsport creation, A1GP World Cup of Motorsport (A1GP) Founder and Chairman Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum Al Maktoum has agreed to release his stake in a multi million dollar transaction to permit a broadening of the institutional shareholder base ahead of a planned initial public offering.

i see what you are saying SalSabeel. obviously he held more than 50% share in the company. by selling the stock, it would broaden his shareholder base. however, the article in gulfnews did state the a1 suffered "heavy" losses in its first year. i am not a stockbroker, but he would have sold these stocks at a loss, right? he would have therefore lost money on his investment. i don't know if he might have realized that the a1 was up against a too established foe. the point about other investors staying is a good one. i guess we will have to wait and see. maybe losing 100 million is not a big thing to him. i will kill myself.

Finance 101

We don't know if Sheik Maktoum sold out at a loss or not. First, the transaction won't complete until the end of the month. Second, the value of the stock is what someone else is willing to pay for it. Not directly related to the losses of the organization over the past year. If the future investors thought A1 would eventually become quite profitable, they may be willing to pay much more than what Sheik Maktoum has invested to get in the door.

I saw him on TV at CNN Sports, I would say that he's a handsome Arab man.. It's quite impressive that he has a college degree and masteral studies...

Does any one know what Sheihk Hasher Maktoum is doing now? After he sold his stake in the A1 Grand Prix series every thing on him has gone quiet.
