Lim Hang Young v L & A (8195) and Yang's Holdings Capital Ltd
HK Court of First Instance, 14-Nov-2017
The Korean petitioner was a no-show and the case is struck out. Justice Jonathan Harris writes: "I note that the Companies Court has had a series of petitions to deal with in the last couple of years which involve Korean petitioners issuing similar petitions to wind up small listed companies on the grounds of misconduct. It is unclear what their motivation is, but it might be prudent for this to be brought to the attention of the Securities and Futures Commission…"
Chi Dong Eun v L & A (8195) and others
HK Court of First Instance, 23-May-2017
The winding-up petition is struck out, as Mr Chi was not a registered shareholder for 6 of the 18 months before filing, as required by law. In a Feb-2017 hearing, Chi produced a share certificate in the name of Liu Longcheng, a plaintiff in another case against L&A. Judge Anthony Chan refers his judgment to the Director of Public Prosecution, as the evidence "invites the investigation…as to whether any of the common law offences of maintenance and champerty has been committed." We note that most investors in HK are not on the share register due to the central depository system, making the law on winding-up unavailable to them.

L & A (8195): 1.6bn options exercisedCCASS deposits
Company filing, 24-Aug-2016
The holders of these 10-year options all forfeited the time value and exercised them on the day that they were announced, 22-Aug, having been purportedly offered or granted on 22-Jul. The new shares were probably deposited into CCASS on 24-Aug and 25-Aug, via FP Sino-Rich Securities & Futures Ltd (1.4bn) and Emperor Securities Ltd (0.2bn).
L&A (8195) purportedly granted 2bn options a month ago
Company announcement, 22-Aug-2016
L&A has been facing a possible hostile takeover bid since 22-Jul-2016, and now it says, a month later, that on that date it purportedly granted options over 2bn shares to 10 "employees and consultants", of which 1.8bn have been "accepted". Our take: the grant should have been announced under the Listing Rules on 22-Jul-2016, otherwise we cannot rule out the possibility of backdating.

The remaining one is umbrella-maker China Jicheng (1027) which has net tangible assets at 31-Dec-2015 of about HK$0.0067 per share (post-split), so it has about 97% downside from today's closing price of $0.224. (28-Jul-2016)

Concentration warning in L & A (8195)
SFC, 24-Jun-2015
China Env Energy (0986) pays HK$113m for 1.73% of L & A (8195)
Company announcement, 12-May-2015
The average price per share was $1.62. At 31-Dec-2014, L & A had equity of $136.73m, or $0.034 per share. So the price is about 48x book value of the OEM cashmere clothing maker. In our view, China Env Energy has just invested in another bubble, following its investment in Suncorp (1063). The question is, why?
