|In 2013 it was reported that efforts by the brother of elusive Perth mining figure Mick ''Many Names'' Shemesian to nab a $5.8 million fee from a company he was advising in a $240 million takeover battle have been stymied by a judge.|
While mystery man Mick spends his time between Dubai and Europe doing deals involving the likes of day trader Leo ''The Gun'' Khouri, his brother Richard Shemesian is a Sydney-based corporate adviser.
Richard's company, Carlow Castle, trades as Greenhill Capital Partners, but seems unrelated to the Greenhill & Co business run by Simon Mordant, Graeme Samuel and friends. In the early 2000s, Shemesian was advising Perth mining company Aztec Resources, for which he received a modest $10,000 a month. But in 2005, the company brought in the big boys at Macquarie, and by February 2006 the relationship with Shemesian was over.
|The deed laying out the divorce settlement included a provision that Shemesian would get a success fee of 2 per cent of the value of any takeover bid that was approved by the Aztec board before mid-2007. The Aztec board folded, recommending shareholders accept the offer. Shemesian sent Aztec his invoice the same day, and Macquarie asked for its $4.3 million fee the day after.|
Aztec never paid Shemesian. Six years later, he sued. And lost.
Work continues on the many, many activities of Mick Many Names. The official count of misspellings in ASIC documents stands at 13.
Nov 08, 2009 (The Australian - ABIX via COMTEX) -- Michael Mihran Shemesian has been linked to a number of Australian companies, although the spelling of his name has often changed. Shemesian is listed as the sole director of Clara Resources under the name "Mihran Chammassian" and was listed under the name "Mick Shmazian" after the sale of his Cape Lambert Iron Ore stake in 2008. He also faced drugs charges under the name "Mihran Shemessian" in the 1990s and was listed in court documents as "Mr Shamazian".
