Decision on shareholdings of TVB (0511)
HK Communications Authority, 27-Sep-2019
In amazing legal contortions, the CA revokes its 2015 and 2016 approvals but issues new approvals based on new, unpublished "deeds of undertaking" and "statutory declarations" that although Dr Chan does not control the majority of the board of YHL, there is an "understanding and practice… that he would lead the YHL Board in relation to how votes in TVB were to be exercised". Therefore, mainland firm CMC and Mr Li Ruigang are not voting controllers of TVB, despite various rights in a "Relationship Agreement" that was not disclosed earlier. The decision follows a referral by the SFC.

Takeover Code Consultation
This article contains the views of Webb-site.com on the SFC's review of the Takeover Code and Share Repurchase Code. We've fought for several of the proposals for a long time, and broadly welcome the paper. We also tell you where the SFC has gone wrong, and finally focus on a solution to the poor quality of so-called independent advice on takeovers and connected transactions. Read our views, decide whether you agree, then SUBMIT YOUR VIEW to the SFC using our special form. (6-May-2001)
