SFC obtains HK$420m compensation for GOME from former chairman and wife
SFC, 11-Mar-2014
Comment: in the circumstances, this is a good outcome and independent shareholders should vote to ratify the share repurchase so that GOME gets the money. If they don't, then the settlement is off and GOME could still sue the couple, but even if that is successful, the awarded damages are unlikely to be any higher. Mr Wong is presumably still in a mainland prison, having been sentenced to 14 years in 2010, but in the mainland, things are not always what they seem.

GOME chairman admits: we lied
Electrical retailer GOME, having reached a truce with jailed founder and controlling shareholder Wong Kwong Yu, now puts itself back in the spotlight by Chairman Chen Xiao's confession that it lied to investors in Dec-2008 about the state of affairs of the group. That's a criminal offence. We call on the SFC to investigate. UPDATE: GOME has published a response, which we include with comments. (22-Nov-2010)
Peace breaks out at GOME (493)
Company announcement, 10-Nov-2010
The next stage should be a negotiation for GOME to acquire the remaining stores owned by Mr Wong Kwong Yu at a fair price, eliminating the ongoing connected transactions and conflicts of interests. As Mr Wong’s shares would not be allowed to vote on that, Bain’s representatives should be able to negotiate an acquisition price which they can support as shareholders. Their interest is the same as other shareholders.
