Rogue Trader (1999)
Simon Shepherd: Peter Norris
Peter Norris : Now, we've had a lot of stick over funding. Brenda Granger tells me we're borrowing all over Japan to get the funds to you. People are beginning to talk, Nick.
Nick Leeson : I understand. I understand completely.
Peter Norris : Excellent. Good man.
[he turns back to chat with the others]
Nick Leeson : [voiceover] And that was it. That was apparently all he had to say on the subject of my enormous exposure that was causing so many ulcers throughout the Barings empire.
Peter Baring : [getting off the phone] That was the Sultan of Brunei's office. They've decided not to proceed, they believe the risks are too great and the time too short in view of the need to have a rescue package in place by the time the markets open again in the Far East.
Simon Jones : Is there really no one else?
Peter Norris : We've tried everyone. It's hopeless.
Peter Baring : I therefore have to inform you that Barings is insolvent and will go into immediate liquidation.
[Peter Norris bursts into tears]
