SHKP (0016): the son rises

As is traditional when an Asian tycoon is convicted, his son replaces him on the board of the listed company.
Rafael Hui admits in corruption trial that he evaded taxes on 'fees'. IRO s82
South China Morning Post, 20-Sep-2014
SCMP does not mention that under s82 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance, any person who wilfully with intent to evade tax omits from a return any sum which should be included is liable on indictment to up to 3 years in jail and a fine of up to 3x the tax evaded. In Mr Hui's case, the fine would not have much effect because he is already bankrupt - but he appears to have opened himself up to another prosecution.
Woo/Wheelock's dealings
Using a tool on Webb-site, we find that Wheelock group (0020) or its controlling family have built a holding over 2% of Sun Hung Kai Properties Ltd (0016) worth HK$6bn, as well as a $1bn position in fashion chain Prada (1913) and trading positions in Cheung Kong (0001) and its associate Hutchison Whampoa (0013). (8-Nov-2012)
LCQ: why is SHKP (0016) representing shipyards on Short-Term Tenancies in Ap Lei Chau? Larvotto - do you know the boatyard?
HK Government, 20-Jun-2012
A curious situation indeed - why is SHKP reportedly paying compensation to the shipyard operators to get them to leave? Could this be related to the fact that SHKP owns 35% of Cheerjoy Development Ltd, which developed the Larvotto residential development behind the shipyards, covered in our article of 3-Mar-2010?
Statement by SHKP
Company media release, 3-Apr-2012
Comment: SHKP complains about "unfounded speculation concerning the investigations". There's a simple solution: publish the allegations and state the company's response to those. Don't keep investors in the dark and then expect them not to speculate.
SHKP (0016): ED Thomas Chan Kui-yuen arrested by ICAC
Company announcement, 19-Mar-2012
Comment: This announcement is vague. If SHKP knows anything else about the Allegation, then it should tell investors.
Larvotto - do you know the boatyard?
We probe the history of the SHKP/Kerry/Paliburg Larvotto, a luxury industrial-cum-residential project overlooking a typhoon shelter but behind boatyards and sawmills, which are noisy enough for the Environmental Protection Department to object to the Town Planning Board's approval, as minutes reveal. "Non-openable windows" were cited as a mitigating measure. Yours for just HK$25k/psf - can you see the bubble? (3-Mar-2010)
A cooling-off period for new home sales
Hysterical politicians are calling for regulation of new home sales practices after a developer used some creative floor numbering and as the debate over the definition of floor area rumbles on. We suggest a less interventionist approach: a statutory cooling-off period, like the SFC is proposing for investment products. Tell us what you think in our opinion poll. (28-Oct-2009)
