CNN presenter Richard Quest recently interviewed Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, CEO, Kingdom Holding Company on his response to the death of Steve Jobs.
QUEST: The brilliance of Steve Jobs is more than just flare and design and innovation. When it came to the bottom line, when he rejoined the company, it was the results, they were nothing short of spectacular. In a moment, we are going to talk to one of Apple’s key investors, Prince Alwaleed of Saudi Arabia.
And if you bear with me, now, the prince bought his shares for Apple in 1997 at $9.50 a share. The rest, as they are so fond of saying is history. Because if you look at how the share price moved, well, you can really see, his highness-look, not only did he stay right the way through this period where they dropped down to $3.00 a share. He has now seen that share price rocket all the way up some 4,000, from $9.50 up to $380.
Nice work if you can get it. But it also, of course, came from the hard work of the company involved. And Prince Alwaleed joins me now, on the line, from Saudi Arabia. Read more
