Skyway (1141) exits Joint Global Ltd for HK$5m and Freewill Holdings Ltd for HK$105m
Company announcement, 6-Mar-2017
Skyway (1141) sells 2 Lincoln Road to CSPT (0139)CSPT announcement
Company announcement, 28-Nov-2016
CSPT owns 15.48% of Skyway and is paying with bonds convertible into 11.11% of CSPT, while Skyway owns 13.56% of CSPT, so this potentially increases the cross-holding. The sale values the property at HK$406m. They are selling the BVI company that indirectly owns the property, thereby avoiding all stamp duties. Skyway only acquired this company on 4-Mar-2016, so if it had bought and sold the property, the sale would have attracted 15% Special Stamp Duty, 15% Stamp Duty and 15% Buyer's Stamp Duty, a total of 45%, if anyone was mad enough to transact on those terms.
Skyway (1141) investment in Joint Global LtdThe Joint Global implosion
Company announcement, 2-Nov-2016
Skyway now confirms that, as we deduced in our article of 30-Sep-2016, it swapped its HECC shares for shares in JG back on 2-Sep-2015. Skyway fails to mention the huge impairment from the implosion, nor does it admit that the investment in JG was a Discloseable Transaction under the Listing Rules.
The Joint Global implosion
A collapse in a hub of the "Chung Nam Network" has wiped about HK$2bn off the balance sheets of at least 11 listed companies, many of which never announced that they had invested in it. We piece together an ugly jigsaw and call on the SFC to investigate and HKEX to wake up and require announcements. (30-Sep-2016)

Skyway Securities (1141) issues shares to cancel promissory notes
Company announcement, 3-May-2016
Skyway doesn't say who owns the BVI subscriber, Capital Union Inc. The last time the market was told, in 2009, it was controlled by Eugene Chuang Yue Chien. The promissory notes being swapped by Capital Union are the remainder of what was originally issued to the vendors of Skyway Securities Investment Ltd and Skyway Futures Ltd, which Skyway (then known as Mission Capital Holdings Ltd) bought last year.
Skyway Securities (1141) buys 2 Lincoln Road from Central Wealth Financial (0572) at HK$403mCWF announcement
Company announcement, 4-Mar-2016
Skyway is buying the BVI shell that owns the house via a HK subsidiary, avoiding 23.5% or $94.7m in Buyer's Stamp Duty (15%) and Double Stamp Duty (8.5%). CWF completed the purchase of the HK subsidiary on 30-Nov-2015. CWF reveals that the ultimate vendor then is a substantial shareholder of Skyway and an Executive Director of Skyway is sister of that person. So that person must be Lam Hoi Sze, brother of Lin Yuehe, Chairman of Skyway since 1-Mar-2016. CWF will become a 9.31% shareholder of Skyway.
China For You (0572) buys 19 Cumberland Road, Kowloon
Company announcement, 2-Feb-2016
CFY is actually buying a HK company for HK$117m, which owns the property with a mortgage of up to HK$117m. The property is valued at $240m. The vendor, Eternal Vantage Investment Ltd, is owned by a "merchant" whose name is not disclosed, but she is the niece of the vendor in another acquisition announced on 17-Aug-2015. Eternal Vantage obtained a loan facility of HK$200m from Skyway Securities (1141) on 19-Nov-2015. Transferring the company avoids 23.5% in Buyer's Stamp Duty and Double Stamp Duty on the house. Instead they pay 0.2% on the value of the shares.

Disclosure of interest, 8-Oct-2015
The 14.75% stake was purchased for HK$434m ($0.31/share). Both companies are in what we call the "Chung Nam Network". Neither company has made an announcement. The vendor was probably Senworth Ltd, which made a corresponding filing.
China Optoelectronics (1332) subscribes HK$80.03m for 3.45% of Freewill Holdings Ltd
Company announcement, 17-Jul-2015
Note: although the deal was stated to be subject to a due diligence investigation "to be carried out", this investigation was apparently completed within 1 hour and 12 minutes after the 22:48 announcement, because the subsequent interim report states that the transaction completed the same day. Freewill is a hub invested by 4 other listed companies in what we call the "Chung Nam Network".
Mission Capital (1141) subscribes HK$440m for shares in Freewill Holdings LtdFreeman announcement
Company announcement, 2-Jul-2015
This gives MC 23.05% of FHL, while Willie (0273) will own 26.70% and Freeman Financial (0279) will own 50.25%. However, on the same day, Freeman announced that FHL has also agreed to issue shares to Enerchina (0622) so if both deals complete then MC will be diluted to 20.77%. All are in the "Chung Nam Network".
Willie (0273) sells 1.5bn shares (15.9%) of Mission Capital (1141) at $0.20
Company announcement, 29-Jun-2015
The purchaser is a BVI shelf company formed 2 weeks ago, the owner of which is not disclosed.

China Jinhai (0139) sells 15/F China United Centre in shell
Company announcement, 12-May-2015
The announcement fails to say who owns the buyer. We can tell you that as of 18-Sep-2012, Future Master Investments Ltd was owned by Cordoba Homes Ltd. That is 94.54% owned by HEC Capital Ltd (a hub of the "Chung Nam Network") and 5.46% owned by Mission Capital (1141). The shell deal avoids 8.5% Double Stamp Duty on the deal. The deal occurs just 6 weeks after completing the purchase of the same thing from Qualipak (1332).

Mission Capital defines "new principal line of trading business"Listing Rule 14.04(1)(g)
Company announcement, 17-Feb-2015
MC is trying to exploit a loophole in the Listing Rules to treat property transactions as part of its trading business, and therefore of a "revenue nature" and exempt from disclosure and approvals under LR 14.04(1)(g). Four minutes after this, it "voluntarily" announced the acquisition of a BVI company which owns a property, calling it a "trading asset".
Qualipak (1332) sells 7/F, China United Centre, to Mission Capital (1141)MC announcement
Company announcement, 16-Feb-2015
Another transaction in the "Chung Nam Network". Of the HK$90m price, $79.9m is satisfied with 850m new shares in Mission Capital, or 11.70% as enlarged. MC at last disclosure is 9.19% owned by HEC Capital, 9.25% owned by Freeman Corp (both being network hubs) and 29.68% by Paul Suen Cho Hung. The transfer of the BVI property owner avoids $7.65m of double stamp duty.
The bubbles in CNN
We warn investors of 3 bubbles amounting to HK$20.0bn (US$2.58bn) in the "Chung Nam Network" of listed companies, Heritage (0412), Rising Dev (1004) and Mascotte (0136) and look at a blatantly bad decision by the board of Hao Tian (0474), and an undisclosed Very Substantial Acquisition by that company. One of the bubbles is even a Russian doll "double bubble" - one owns the other. (8-Jan-2015)
Mission Capital (1141) to subscribe 5.46% of Cordoba Homes Ltd for HK$103.4m
Company announcement, 6-Jan-2015
MC fails to say who owns Cordoba, but we can tell you that as of 18-Sep-2012, it was 100% owned by HEC Capital Ltd, which is at the core of the Chung Nam Network and also owns HEC Securities Ltd, which is currently underwriting an open offer of new shares by MC to raise $209.7m net - so half of that goes back. HECC owns 9.19% of MC.
Poly Capital (1141) subscribes 3.92% of HEC Capital Ltd for HK$228m
Company announcement, 30-Jun-2014
China Strategic bubble
We warn investors of a bubble in the stock of China Strategic, the 80% owner of the proposed buyer of Taiwan's Nan Shan Life Insurance, partly financed by a massive note issue convertible into 78bn shares at $0.10 each. We publish the placing list and analyse the names in the deal. Finally, we warn investors to avoid 7 companies in the "Chung Nam network", which has lost HK$6.2bn in 5 years. (13-Nov-2009)

Money for Nothing
It was a case of "if it can go wrong, it will go wrong" for toy-maker Hung Fung Group Holdings Ltd. This horror story includes a pointless stock split, the "disappearance" of 3 major customers, an investigation by the ICAC over an alleged credit scam, a riot in a factory, an attempted kidnapping, the PRC's Public Security Bureau, and liquidation petitions for various parts of the group. (8-Aug-2001)
