Information surrounding HORNBLOWER HOLDINGS formation from the owners and directors, of:

CEP HOLDINGS (aka) CLAIRVEST EQUITY PARTNERS LTD. (owners and director)

Circa 2002:

CLAIRVEST EQUITY PARTNERS LTD. (CEP) - Canada

Canada: Toronto Stock Exchange symbol: CVG

CLAIRVEST EQUITY PARTNERS LIMITED PARTNERSHIP (aka) CEP
CLAIRVEST GROUP, INC. (2001)
CLAIRVEST GROUP HOLDINGS
CONSOLIDATED VENDORS

Investments in the following publicly traded companies:

DATAMARK SYSTEMS GROUP INC.
VOXOM INC.

Investments in the following privately held companies:

SPARKLING SPRING WATER HOLDINGS LIMITED
ALLIED GLOBAL HOLDINGS INC.
CLAIRVEST-YORKTON TRANSITION CAPITAL FUND L.P.
CONSOLIDATED VENDORS CORPORATION
GATEWAY CASINOS INC.
NRI INDUSTRIES INC.
SIGNATURE SECURITY GROUP HOLDINGS PTY. LIMITED

According to reports:

CLAIRVEST-YORKTON TRANSITION CAPITAL FUND L.P.

A merchant bank in Canada that invests its own capital and that of third parties through CEP HOLDINGS in companies with potential to generate superior returns.

In addition to financing, CLAIRVEST contributes strategic expertise and execution ability to support the growth and development of its investee partners.

CLAIRVEST realizes value through the eventual disposition of its investments, once its target objectives havebeen achieved.

CLAIRVEST book value increased by $18,100,000 million during the quarter ending September 30, 2001 to $175,100,000 million.

The increase in book value was claimed attributable to previously announced issuance of 2,200,000 million non-voting shares to the CANADA PENSION PLAN INVESTMENT BOARD for $16,900,000 million, as well as net income of $1,300,000 million for the quarter.

Book value per share decreased $0.03 to $8.37 by September 30, 2001 due to dilution from the share issuance.

NOTES: Claimed holding a $20,000,000 million credit facility with a Canadian chartered bank.

The CLAIRVEST group was listed in another program offered in a list that included the CARLYSLE GROUP and other prominent firms connected with the U.S. government, however this CEP may not have actually been legitmately connected with HORNBLOWER HOLDINGS LLC associations as it claimed.

LEGACY NARCOTIC TRADING CHINA TRIAD DRUG CARTEL EUROPEAN CONNECTIONS

Dr. Günter Berthold Horn ( St. Augustin, Germany ) saw INTERTRADE BANK investor groups claim at one point to be part of their European base, claiming further to be extremely conservative with their investment portfolio. As soon as INTERTRADE BANK became an investment and bank paper fraud controversy, Dr. Günter Berthold Horn ( St. Augustin, Germany ) disavowed having anything to do with INTERTRADE BANK except for a 'business deal' that had fallen through. Furthermore, Dr. Günter Berthold Horn ( St. Augustin, Germany ) claimed he had no control over what INTERTRADE BANK may have said about his involvement.

A $100,000,000 certificate of deposit (color copy available offline) plus a $500,000,000 million certificate of deposit with the name of INTERTRADE BANK using the same address as Dr. Günter Berthold Horn in St. Augustin, Germany was signed on September 1, 2002 by INTERTRADE BANK Treasurer and Secretary Bernard Schnitzler.

A color image document copy of the $500,000,000 INTERTRADE BANK certificate of deposit is still viewable on the internet, at:

GABRIEL MACENROE (aka) GABRIEL MCENROE - CONNECTIONS

Gabriel Francis MacEnroe was involved in a private placement investment firm in the U.S., which was discovered by the FBI to be acting as a front company for bank paper trading investment deals handled out of the Far East through Dr. Günter Berthold Horn in St. Augustin, Germany during the early 1990s. A lengthy report regarding this, which includes U.S. federal official documentation is avaialable offline through ShoreLines, at: [E-MAIL: ShoreLines@bluewin.ch]

It was also this time Gabriel MacEnroe who maintained a London, UK office in the Kennsington District, which during 2002 had a firm named FISCHER occupying the same address where many Private Military Contractor ( PMC ) and Risk Management companies are located. This FISCHER firm was involved with risk management, however no public information exists as to whether this FISCHER held any other connections with INTERTRADE BANK.

Subject: Re: DD on Hornblower Holdings - L. Rancharan

Hornblower, as illustrated in your post, reeks of "Lidio" Rancharan who carries a Belize passport, who owes several parties some fairly serious amounts, and whom is a known waste of time and non-performer when it comes to his claims of being able to deliver senior bank debt notes.

In Belize, a "Norberto Rancharan" was mentioned, at:

In late developments in the gasoline situation, we just spoke to Nolberto Rancharan, president of the dealers association. He confirmed that all but 4 gas stations closed indefinitely. The association will meet with government tomorrow morning to try to hammer out a solution. Rancharan said that the trigger for tonight's action was government's failure to meet their demand for an increase in the dealer's margin from 6% to 9%. NEWS 5 confirmed at least 5 stations refused to go on strike. These were One-Stop Shell in Belize City and Orange Walk, plus 3 Texaco dealers in Belize City.

HORNBLOWER and all of its claims do 'not appear transparent' enough to do safe business with at this time.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
