Plans to Purchase LIAT Brand Name in Progress by Antiguan Government


In a recent announcement, Prime Minister Gaston Browne shared significant developments regarding the revival of LIAT, the Caribbean airline.

LIAT 2020, the reincarnation of LIAT 1974 Limited, will take on the financial responsibility of the brand, aiming to start fresh without the burden of legacy issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

PM Browne dismissed speculations that liabilities would automatically transfer to LIAT 2020, emphasizing their commitment to avoiding such issues.

Additionally, Browne stated that LIAT 2020 would purchase the LIAT 1974 Limited brand name, despite the company’s liquidation, as a testament to their belief in its value.

He also disclosed that the Antiguan government would procure and provide planes for LIAT 2020, marking a promising step towards the airline’s revival.

This move demonstrates a commitment to revitalizing regional air travel in the Caribbean.

  1. PM Browne, do you care how the people you govern feel or not? While we are going through all kinds of hardships and misery, you are busy going about your own agenda which has nothing to do with us, like using valuable funds to pay for Alfa Nero and buying an airline?

    Don’t you hear the people? Does what they are saying mean anything to you? Don’t you care? Is it only about you and yours and what you want?

    Word of advice to you, Sir. History is full of many like you. Try doing some reading and see what happened to them.

    • A me run things. Shut up and put up or get the hell out the country.

      – 500 house in 500days
      – 24/7 running water in 14 days
      – 2 billion + us dollars in imminent hospital investments
      – We will not shrink and optimize liat like the experts say but buy it out and make it much bigger and add north america destinations (2019)
      – Tax incentives will be repealed from Sandals in public pronouncements and they will build Beaches resort anyway cause me a the top dog
      – we will repeal income taxes to the benefit of the rich (completed with haste)

      More Jobs, Less Taxes, Economic Power House.

  2. What is the goodwill of a company?
    Goodwill refers to the value a company gets from its brand, customer base and reputation associated with its intellectual property. Goodwill is a long-term assets that generates value for a company over a number of years.

    What is the basic formula for goodwill?
    Valuation of Goodwill – Meaning, Methods, Formula and FAQ
    The formula is used to assess it. Goodwill is Weighted Average Profit multiplied by the number of years from the purchase, where Weighted Average Profit = Profits multiplied by weights/Weighted Average Profit.

    Goodwill is calculated by taking the purchase price of a company and subtracting the difference between the fair market value of the assets and liabilities. Companies are required to review the value of goodwill on their financial statements at least once a year and record any impairments.

    This pure theory and therefore would not justify paying a dime for LIAT Brand in today’s market.
    I guess the PM wants to make sure they have some money to pay severance to the staff
