This case discusses the sale of a hotel in Dubai by an international western company to a local Arab group. Polygon Hotel Group hopes to sell the newly constructed building and then manage it as one of the properties in its chain, but it has little time, almost no cash in a market downturn, and only one bidder - Al-Shari.
