Enterprise Dev (1808) to buy 50% of Taiping Securities from China Taiping (0966)CCASS movements
Company announcement, 15-Nov-2017
This is interesting, because it appears from Webb-site CCASS Analysis that Rentian (0885) may have pledged its 38.71% controlling shareholding of Enterprise Dev to Taiping Securities in July this year, something that the announcement does not mention. For the sale, China Taiping would receive new shares and a convertible bond in Enterprise Dev. That raises the question of whether Rentian and China Taiping will be acting in concert to control Enterprise Dev.
Questions on Teamway (1239) and a bit of soccer
An HKEX decision last week led us to discover an inflated acquisition that looks like a cash extraction exercise, possibly to cover an earlier outlay of "earnest money". A sudden surge in profits of the acquired consultancy coincides with a Chinese takeover of troubled soccer team A.C. Milan, or Rossonori, which prints more red ink than black, and a deeply-subordinated loan to its Chairman. (22-Oct-2017)
Controlling shareholding of Enterprise Dev (1808) on the move
Webb-site CCASS Analysis shows that 203,854,292 shares (38.73%) of Enterprise Dev have moved from the custody of Kingston Securities Ltd to Taiping Securities (HK) Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China Taiping Insurance (0966). These shares are owned by Rentian (0885) which is controlled by Mr King Pak Fu.Such a move may indicate a pledging of the shares as security for a loan. (31-Jul-2017)

SFC fines Kingston HK$500k
SFC, 5-May-2015
This story is a leftover from a vote-rigging scheme in the attempted privatisation of PCCW in 2009. The 22 clients in Macau were among 175 Kingston clients who bought 1-3 board lots of PCCW shares, withdrew them from the clearing system, registered them in their own names and then voted in favour of the privatisation to boost the headcount.
Li Juewen v World International Development (BVI) Ltd
HK Court of First Instance, 7-Sep-2011
"Immediate settlement was, as I understand it, concluded by an off-set of shares in [China Renji Medical] purchased by Kingston for other clients and deposited by Kingston in its account with CCASS" - if true, other clients will be delighted to know this.
Integrated Capital (Asia) Ltd v Abba Chan Tat Chee
HK Court of Appeal, 29-Jul-2010
Thinsoft's thin ice
There's a bubble in Thinsoft (8096), suspended with a market value of HK$1,604m and net assets of $33m. Over 95% of the company is in the custody of 2 brokers. We also discuss the archaic practice of parallel trading, which was to have been abolished in 2008. HKEx appears to have given up on that. (11-Dec-2009)
Hong Kong Building and Demolition
HKBLA (0145) has been a perennial cash shell. After 3 takeovers, its foundations now appear to be under threat as its cash pile gets depleted on dubious transactions, including investment in Byford and an "earnest deposit". It appears to have become part of a network which includes at least 9 other listed companies. (10-Dec-2009)
China Motion Telecom - recent history
We examine the recent history of China Motion Telecom (0989), including two aborted acquisitions and a highly dilutive placing "for working capital" at a time when the company was flush with cash. Why did the board agree to that and where did the shares go? We also query the sustainability of margins in a recent acquisition from CMT's controlling shareholders. (10-Dec-2009)
China Strategic bubble
We warn investors of a bubble in the stock of China Strategic, the 80% owner of the proposed buyer of Taiwan's Nan Shan Life Insurance, partly financed by a massive note issue convertible into 78bn shares at $0.10 each. We publish the placing list and analyse the names in the deal. Finally, we warn investors to avoid 7 companies in the "Chung Nam network", which has lost HK$6.2bn in 5 years. (13-Nov-2009)
Integrated Capital (Asia) Ltd v Abba Chan Tat Chee
HK Court of First Instance, 30-Sep-2009
Skin in the game
In part 3 of a series, we look at the often calamitous IPOs produced by B M Intelligence and its conversion into China Bio-med Regeneration Technology, involving a huge mark-up on the acquisition. We also cover an international organisation run out of a cobbler's shop in Las Vegas, and the recent changes of ownership in CBRT, including a CPPC member who is a big fan of the PLA. (23-Jun-2009)
China Railway Games
In part 2 of a series, we look at how HK$16bn of market cap evaporated when bubbles around China Railway Logistics, PME and Forefront burst. Each dealt with the same purported arm of the Ministry of Railways for joint ventures in wagon-leasing, media and online ticketing, each of which failed to get started. A miriad of BVI shells with shadowy owners are involved, but at least one has exposed himself in a court case. (11-Jun-2009)
Byford bubble
Investors should beware of a bubble in Byford (8272), which boasts two celebrity shareholders - New World Development's Cheng Yu Tung and Angela Leong, a wife of casino tycoon Stanley Ho. Both apparently paid 186x net asset value for the shares. (1-Jun-2009)
Comment: RBI Holdings open offer
Independent shareholders should vote against the open offer at the SGM on Thursday 4-Jun-09, and protect themsleves from 400% dilution. (29-May-2009)
Re PCCW Ltd proposed scheme of arrangement for privatisation
HK Court of Appeal, 11-May-2009
PCCW - Grounds of Appeal
In our view the judgment in the Court of First Instance on PCCW's scheme of arrangement and the alleged vote-rigging provides ample grounds for appeal. We look at the ruling in detail and where the SFC may be taking this case on Thursday at the Court of Appeal. (13-Apr-2009)

The open offer is underwritten by Mr Cheung Chi Tai (via Jumbo Boom) for up to $124.4m, giving him up to 28.8% of Massive Resources. Mr Cheung is "a merchant in Hong Kong. The Company got acquainted with Jumbo Boom through Kingston Securities".
Stir-Fried Lobster
We issue a bubble warning on Hon Po Group (Lobster King) (0228), and dig into the background to its apparent transformation into the next big thing, coal mining in Inner Mongolia. (19-Apr-2006)
