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 Vanguard's Grand Promise
China Vanguard (8156) bought an asset from its controlling shareholder at 6.5 times the price at which China Motion (0989) turned it down. Now it is struggling to redeem convertible bonds the target issued to Goldman Sachs and Evolution Capital. We also query a year-end HK$139m cash outflow to buy a company which was once owned by the controlling shareholder, with negative net assets. Finally we look at a pending acquisition by Aptus, its subsidiary. (10-Dec-2009)

B&B and Aptus
We issue a "bubble rap" warning on Aptus (8212) and its parent B&B (8156). Aptus claims to have a deal with an arm of CNPC, parent of PetroChina, which apparently needs tiny GEM companies to help finance its mainland oilfields, while B&B, a honey trader, has bought a ticket in the mainland lottery which we expect will give you a worse return than the Mark Six if you buy the stock. We also take a close look at the financial engineering behind all this. (22-May-2006)
