    in offing

    Hi! What is the exact meaning of the words in bold? The passage is from a political text. I fact It is from a telegram sent by an embassy and has a especial style.
    Although thus far Mosadeqhas shown more interest in settling question compensation since he has seensome dollars in offing than he had in matter future sales, I detectedduring our last conversation growing interest in matter of future sales and Ibelieve this interest will continue grow as we surmount hurdle of compensation.
    Thanks very much.
