THE decision to list Dolphin Cove on Jamaica’s Junior Stock Exchange has elicited much interest, as 80 million ordinary shares are on offer at an invitation price of J$3 per share. The authorised share capital of the company is 432,426,376 shares as it seeks to raise J$240 million, with PanCaribbean Financial Services handling the public offering.
Dolphin Cove, founded and operated by husband and wife team, Stafford and Marilyn Burrowes, has become one of the major entrepreneurial success stories over the last decade and in that time it has undoubtedly risen to become the country’s leading tourism attraction.
