Luxey International (Holdings) Limited 薈萃國際(控股)有限公司

SFC action is too little, too late for minority shareholders of Luxey (8041)
The SFC seeks disqualification of 2 ex-directors, but fails to seek any recovery of Luxey's HK$350m, 7-fold overpayment in an acquisition from an alleged nominee of then Chairman Joseph Lau. We first documented this case and numerous other suspicious transactions involving Luxey and other listed companies in a series of articles in 2012. This is the only one to see any action, and it falls far short of what is needed to provide a deterrent. (14-Apr-2019)

Leslie Cheng, Burkes and Turks
It appears that the FRC and HKICPA, in its recent action against Leslie Cheng & Co, missed the elephant in the accounts of Luxey (8041). 6 listed companies are keeping him on board, 3 as chairman of their audit committees. And then there's his doctorate... (16-Jan-2016)
HKICPA fines Leslie Cheng Chi Pang and his firm over Luxey (8041) 2009 audit
HKICPA, 8-Jan-2016
Luxey was the first and only HK-listed audit client of Leslie Cheng & Co. The case was referred by the Financial Reporting Council which has yet to publish the report of its Audit Investigation Board dated 8-Aug-2013. Mr Cheng is an INED or NED of 6 listed companies. He was the Engagement Quality Control Reviewer in this audit. The engagement partner, Wong Wing Hong, was convicted in 2012 of defrauding Toys R Us and on 5-Dec-2013, HKICPA removed him for 6 months for that.
Patrick Ng Wing Hang, MD of Pan-China (H.K.) CPA, fined HK$70k for failings in 2006 and 2007 audits of Luxey (8041)
HKICPA, 29-Sep-2014
His firm Patrick Ng & Co was reorganised into a company now named Pan-China (H.K.) CPA Ltd in 2008. He is an INED and audit committee chairman of Far East Hotels and Entertainment (0037) and Shenyin Wanguo (H.K.) (0218). The case was investigated by the Financial Reporting Council and referred to the HKICPA on 18-Sep-2012 but was not referred to a disciplinary panel until 22-Oct-2013. Why should the HKICPA hang on to its disciplinary role?

Raking muck, Part 5

We also introduce a 10th listed company to the story, Zhi Cheng (8130) which has such a track record of value destruction that it has consolidated its shares by 200,000 to 1 since 2007. (11-Mar-2012)
Raking muck, Part 3
We now connect Joseph Lau to Executive Talent, and focus on a series of dubious transactions by Hycomm and the bubble in its stock while it did the coal mine hokey cokey, from which bubble Joseph Lau has profited hugely. We also look at the creation of Inno-Tech and the youngest infant mortality on GEM, Codebank. (5-Mar-2012)
Raking muck, Part 2
Continuing our series, we look at a set of over-priced acquisitions and questionable transactions by China Post e-Commerce and others, building a matrix which demonstrates the close connections between the persons involved. We call on the SFC to investigate. (27-Feb-2012)

The controlling shareholder of the buyer is also a 24.23% shareholder and CEO of the vendor, but it is not a connected transaction for the buyer under the Listing Rules because he owns less than 30% of the vendor so it is not his "associate". It is an exempt connected transaction for the vendor because it is less than HK$10m. Another deal in the same announcement, to buy 40% from another vendor, was terminated the next day.
