Hawaii’s sixth-largest island,
Lanai, has been known by different nicknames through the decades — from
the “Pineapple Island” to the “Private Island” and at present “Hawaii’s
Most Enticing Island.” One could soon call it “Ellison Island.”
The third-richest man in
America, Oracle Corp. co-founder and CEO Larry Ellison, is buying Lanai
from fellow billionaire David Murdock for hundreds of millions of
dollars in cash, though the exact price was not disclosed.
