WHITACRE: And regarding our, and regarding our next meeting,...
WHITACRE: I think that, now our next meeting, since you guys hosted the
Vancouver meeting, I think ADM should host the next meeting.
Don't ya think?
MIMOTO: Yeah. That's fine.
WHITACRE: And maybe we host it in, uh, Maui.
WHITACRE: The lysine, you know, have the lysine meeting, the group meeting
like we had last time in Vancouver.
WHITACRE: The group lysine meeting, to have it in Maui, Hawaii.
MIMOTO: Maui, Hawaii is, uh, still the United States.
WHITACRE: Yeah, but what's that mean? Still the United States?
MIMOTO: Well, still the United States means, uh, United States is, ah, very
severe for the control of antitrust activity, no?
WHITACRE: Yeah, but you think in a, in a hotel in...
MIMOTO: (ui-talking at same time).
WHITACRE: Hawaii next to an eighteen hole golf course?

about a year ago, I think.
MIMOTO: I know, one-to-one is alright, but this kind of, well maybe we can
call it, ah, association for the establishment of our association.
WHITACRE: Yeah, that's right. It could be a formal association meeting.
MIMOTO: Maui, Maui is very convenient for us, but, uh, I don't know.
WHITACRE: It, it, for one, it'd be a formal association meeting to, to starting of
WHITACRE: and also would be a good distance for you and us both together.
MIMOTO: (ui). That's right.
WHITACRE: Only about half way for each of us.
MIMOTO: Yeah, yeah, that's right. And be on the golf course, I think.
MIMOTO: Uh, no big problem.
WHITACRE: And I think you country owns...
WHITACRE: Hawaii anyway. So.
MIMOTO: Yeah, that's right. So, uh, well, anyway, I will get that advice from
our legal department.
WHITACRE: Yeah, okay, and we got, we got...
MIMOTO: But, uh...
WHITACRE: time on that. That meeting wasn't gonna happen till one, we
figured out the mechanics of the association...
WHITACRE: first, and two, to make sure these prices really go up.
