Conclusions on ex-entitlement trading and shareholder approvalOur article of 27-Jan-2011
SEHK, 20-May-2011

Now, we call on SEHK to address the other problems with rights issues and open offers explained in our article.
Ex-chaos trading: Zhongtian proves point

We also repeat two outstanding problems which HKEx has failed to address, on expropriation of passive shareholders' value, and on the discounts on open offers. (27-Jan-2011)
