Enigma Network member Capital VC (2324) launches 20% placement at 84.2% discount to NAV
Company announcement, 4-Oct-2021
This is a "Chapter 21" closed-end investment company. The announcement fails to mention the discount or the resulting 14.0% dilution of NAV. How can this be in the interests of shareholders? Why do the SFC and HKEX still tolerate such issues by Chapter 21 companies, the sole mission of which should be to grow NAV per share?
Capital VC (2324) grants directors share options at 87% discount to net asset value
Company announcement, 13-Feb-2020
220m options equivalent to 8% of the existing shares at $0.025 per share. This is a Chapter 21 investment company in the "Enigma Network". The NAV at 31-Jan was $0.189/share. 27.5m options (1%) go to each of the 2 executive directors, approved by the 3 "independent" directors. We call on the SFC to stop this.
Capital VC (2324) terminates placing
Company announcement, 27-Apr-2018
This follows a complaint by Webb-site to the SFC on 2-Feb-2018 regarding the 84.9% discount of the placing price to net asset value per share of this closed-end investment company, and 3 subsequent extensions of the completion date. The termination announcement fails to state what "conditions precedent" have not been fulfilled, but the only disclosed condition in the placing announcement was listing approval for the new shares.
Capital VC (2324) cancels grant of options
Company announcement, 15-Feb-2018
This follows a complaint by Webb-site to the SFC on 2-Feb-2018, noting that the exercise price of the options was an 82.5% discount to net asset value. No reasons are given for the cancellation. Capital VC is a member of what we call the "Enigma Network".
Capital VC (2324) dilutes holders againOptions announcement
Company announcement, 2-Feb-2018
The "Enigma Network" investment company is blowing the general mandate, issuing 19.96% new shares at $0.05, not mentioning the 84.9% discount to Net Asset Value of $0.3308 at 31-Dec-2017. The board claims the issue is "in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole". The placing agent, Infast Brokerage, is 95% owned by GCPS (8193), another Enigma member. 3 minutes eariler, Capital VC announced a grant of 275m options at $0.058 to unnamed persons. That's another potential 10% enlargement of the share base at an 82.5% discount to NAV. We call on the SFC to direct the Stock Exchange to reject the listing application for all the new shares.

SFC sanctions Capital VC and Peter Yau Chung HongOur article of 14-Aug-2011
SFC, 22-May-2012
This case was triggered by Webb-site's article of 14-Aug-2011, when we pointed out that an offer should have been made for Longlife (8037). We regard the 18-month "Cold Shoulder Order" as light in duration. The statement says nothing about the fact that Mr Yau and Longlife combined held more than 30% of Capital VC (2324). Meanwhile, Mr Yau is involved in a separate case with the Market Misconduct Tribunal where a ruling is awaited.

Longlife (8037) resumes trading
Company announcement, 18-Aug-2011
The company fails to mention that it owned about 8.41% of Capital VC (at last filing) or explain why it bought those shares. The announcement is signed by Cheung Hung, Chairman of Longlife. As we noted in our article, he is a former NED of Capital VC.
Capital VC (2324) combined stake in Longlife (8037) with Mr Yau exceeded 30%
Company announcement, 17-Aug-2011
This follows our article of 14-Aug-2011. We alerted the SFC on 11-Aug-2011. CVC says that from 10-Jun-2011 to 28-Jul-2011, it and Mr Yau had a combined stake over 30% in Longlife. CVC will consult the SFC for a ruling or waiver, but defiantly says "irrespective of the result", it will not make a general offer and Mr Yau won't either. SFC urges CVC and Mr Yau to comply with the Takeover Code or face disciplinary action in respect of any breach. Watch this space.
Capital VC (2324) and Longlife (8037)
Our analysis shows that a general offer may have been triggered for Longlife and possibly for Capital VC too. We look at the close relationship between the two and the people involved. We also ask how a person could continue to act as director of a valuer, issuing valuation opinions for numerous listed companies, without disclosing that he was bankrupt at the time. (14-Aug-2011)

HKEx: no reform to placing mandate...or anything else
HKEx's decision to leave the Rules on dilutive issue mandates unchanged is an insult to investor opinion, expressed by their voting on this matter. Since the 2008 blackout saga, the Government and its regulators are unwilling to upset the local business elite with reforms. As China heads for an international currency, the tycoons are not as important to the market's future as HKEx seems to think they are. (27-Oct-2009)
