The Huarong-CMB network: 26 stocks not to own
In our first circuit diagram since the infamous Enigma Network, we examine the overlapping networks, bubbles and funding surrounding 26 HK-listed companies that your portfolio would probably do better without. (19-Oct-2018)
Huarong and China Singyes Solar Technologies (0750)
CSST, now suspended pending disclosure of its financial position, has failed to disclose in its reports the interest of Huarong Int Fin (0993), which claims to have a 15.09% interest, including 8.04% purchased from an unknown vendor in Dec-2017 and security over a further 7.05% pledged to it, presumably to secure a put option that it claims to have been granted. By whom? (18-Oct-2018)
Lai Xiaomin, ex-Chairman of Huarong (2799) expelled from Party (in Chinese only)
CCP Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, 15-Oct-2018
Next comes the formality of prosecution.
Huarong and the Chung Nam Network
Webb-site can reveal another SFC investigation underway involving dealings in Pak Wing (8316). The manipulation of this GEM bubble reveals another connection between China Huarong (2799) and what we call the "Chung Nam Network". The more we scrutinise Huarong, the worse it looks. Will the State end up bailing out the bailer? (3-Oct-2018)
Shanghai Huaxin Group (HongKong) Ltd ordered wound up
HK Court of First Instance, 3-Sep-2018
Also known as Huaxin Hong Kong, this is a 100% subsidiary of CEFC Shanghai International Group Ltd (Huaxin Shanghai), which has defaulted on its bonds. Huarong Int Fin (0993) subscribed HK$900m for preferred shares of Huaxin HK in Jun-2017, and received guarantees and put options from Huaxin Shanghai, on which it has also defaulted.

For failing to cooperate with an investigation.
China Huarong (2799) Chairman quits for "personal reason"
Company announcement, 20-Apr-2018
Mr Lai Xiaomin is under investigation for corruption - surely that is a reason worth mentioning?
Censure of Mr Fu Jiwen, absent former ED of Huarong Int Fin (0993)
SEHK, 3-Apr-2018
He was an ED until 2-Sep-2015. Subsequently, he failed to respond to investigation enquiries by the Listing Department of the Stock Exchange. It's another demonstration that the Exchange is an ineffective regulator - it is a for-profit company without statutory investigative powers. The listing regulatory function should be moved to the SFC, which could then at least seek co-operation from its mainland counterpart.
Sunshine 100 (2608) controller pledges 324.335m shares (12.42%) to Huarong Int Fin (0993)
Disclosure of interest, 28-Dec-2017
This comes on the day of completion of Huarong's subscription for 9% of the enlarged share capital, in which the controller guaranteed a 21% return in 3 years, so it may be security for that obligation, or they may have borrowed against the shares.
China Sandi (0910) controller pledges 625m shares (14.01%) to Huarong Int Fin (0993)Huarong filing
Disclosure of interest, 27-Dec-2017
This comes after Huarong bought 312.5m unlisted warrants from Kong LingLing at $0.06 per warrant, which it exercised at $0.24 per share on 22-Dec-2017. Huarong now also has a short interest in the same number of shares, suggesting that the controller has granted a put option and posted 625m shares as security for its obligations. Kong LingLing purchased the warrants on 24-Jan-2017 from CCB (0939) at $0.015 per warrant.
Huarong Int Fin (0993) subscribes HK$729m for 235.055m shares (9%) of Sunshine 100 (2608)Sunshine 100 announcement
Company announcement, 18-Dec-2017
Joywise Holdings Ltd, the controller of Sunshine will, for 6 months ending 3 years after completion, compensate Huarong for any shortfall in net disposal proceeds below a 21% return on the investment including distributions received. The subscription price of $3.10 implies a compensation if the disposal price does not reach $3.76.
Huarong Intl (0993) subscribes HK$800m convertible bond of China First Capital (1269)CFC announcement
Company announcement, 4-Dec-2017

Mr Tang Mingyang, an ED of CFCG, has guaranteed the bonds and pledged his 16.84% shareholding as security. He and CFCG have an obligation to top up the security if the share price drops below a certain level causing the loan-to-value ratio to rise above 50%, failing which, the bonds can be redeemed.

Company announcement, 9-Jun-2017
There are various put options provided by its PRC 100% parent, CEFC Shanghai International Group Ltd, in the event that Huaxin HK does not get a listing on a recognised stock exchange (including SEHK main board) by 2020. The announcement doesn't say what percentage of the equity of Huaxin HK the preferred shares represent.
Huarong Int Fin (0993) invests HK$1.56bn into funds managed by China HKBridge (2323) and lends it HK$450mHKBridge announcement

Simsen Capital Finance Ltd v Jiang Quanlong, Chairman of China Rare Earth (0769) and Pan Asia Environmental Protection (0556)Loan announcement
HK Court of First Instance, 16-Mar-2017
The defence case involves a tale of Macau gambling debts and the people behind Imperial Pacific (1076). The original loan was announced by Simsen (now Huarong International Financial Holdings Ltd) on 27-Jun-2014, but it did not disclose the borrower. The plaintiff's application for summary judgment in the amount of HK$212m is dismissed. The court rules that there is a triable issue as to whether the loan is enforcable.

The firm held 9.95% of China Smarter Energy (1004), 4.49% of Huarong (0993) and 1.34% of Carnival (0996), as well as having sunk HK$340.8m into Joint Global Ltd, the newest unlisted hub in what we call the "Chung Nam Network". It provides no details of this significant investment, which in our view should have been announced when made.
