I'm afraid not. Sorry to be boring but the company is normally called
3i (Three I) and is a venture capitalist based in the UK backed by several
of the major high street banks.
It had quite a presence in the media sector in the 80's then pulled the
plug on most of its interests in the UK depression in the early 90's. A
phrase with the words "barge pole" in it might be quite appropriate when
talking about them.
I hope the management of the rumoured new Cintel and Brimar concerns
have taken note of quite recent history.
