George Wight Jr. and his companies, Armada Enterprises and Armada Group of Florida, were named as a defendant in a three-count suit alleging breach of contract and tortious interference, filed Aug. 31 in U.S. District Court in Illinois.

...
Sellers planned to sell Wight his majority stake in Premier for $16.2 million.
...
Wight signed an agreement Oct. 15, 2014, to buy 15,430,179 shares at $1.05 per share by Nov. 20 after initially proposing a deal in March and signing a letter of intent in April, according to the suit and Securities and Exchange Commission documents. Wight allegedly reneged after trying to add deal conditions Nov. 19.
Per the filing, Sellers claims Wight used his Armada corporate entities as a sham to mislead the Premier board and shareholders into believing he had the money and the means to complete the deal. The filing alleges Wight "never had sufficient cash on hand" to complete the deal and might never have been "capitalized at all."
Wight is the son of a former Bank of Illinois director and CEO of Armada Enterprises, a limited partnership "with diversified interests in aerospace, energy, entertainment, fashion, maritime, real estate and sporting," according to its website, which lists a Wall Street address in New York City but no phone number.

Andrew Shapiro, president of San Francisco-based Lawndale Capital Management, which holds about 5 percent of Premier shares, said "it's not clear to me what happens" to the proposed Dinoking merger if a federal judge were to force Wight to consummate the original deal with Sellers Capital.


KENNEDY FUNDING: PRESS ROOM

www.kennedyfunding.com [cached]

LAKE GENEVA, WIS., July 23 -- George Wight of Wight Development Group owned several tracts of land in the city of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, a popular resort area. The various tracts totaled 226 acres of gently rolling meadows and forest, and included the Hilmoor Golf Course. And Wight had a plan that would eventually culminate in Lake Geneva's next great resort destination.

Wight wanted to subdivide the property, setting aside a 5-acre parcel for commercial purposes, and redeveloping the remaining land into a breathtaking, exclusive residential golf community. As he envisioned it, the community would cluster around a new, completely redesigned and rebuilt Lohman golf course with a new, 10,000 square foot clubhouse that included a pro shop and restaurant.
...
George's loan was a case in point.
