If you're hosting executives from India who want to buy your company for as much as $12 billion, where do you take them out to dinner? How about a nice Indian restaurant? That's where executives from LyondellBasell Industries AF and Reliance Industries Ltd. dined in Houston on Wednesday night, according to the Houston Chronicle. Spokesmen for the companies did not confirm the meeting, but the newspaper attributed the story to the manager at Kiran's Restaurant and Bar, which is described as an "upscale Indian restaurant." The manager even noted that Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani did not attend the dinner, but he was sent a take-out meal. So it looks like the rumors that other suitors for LyondellBasell might emerge could be wrong, and the deal is getting done over plates of naan, tandoori meats and saffron rice. What could be better?
