Censure/criticism of ex-directors of Champion Technology (0092) and Kantone (1059)
SEHK, 27-Apr-2020
Breaches of fiduciary duties led to an astounding HK$8.9bn of impairment losses (over 99%) on the value of purported "Tianhuang stones". Left unmentioned is what assets they swapped for this near-worthless treasure. Again, the so-called INEDs were unquestioningly dormant. Paul Kan Man Lok, JP, SBS, CBE etc. should now be stripped of his gongs.

CSFB's Toxic Convertibles lifts the lid on the toxic convertibles scam in HK, in which small, mostly naive companies surrender control over future equity issuance to an investment bank, whose principal interest is to lock in a profit by converting bonds on a rolling basis at a deep discount to market and selling the resulting shares. CSFB has led the way down this value-destroying path, with Merrill Lynch recently joining the fray. We estimate that the banks make a gross profit on money raised of about 31%, and the average stock price has fallen 30% since a toxic convertible was launched. If you are a listed company, just say no. If you are an institutional investor, take your business elsewhere. (8-Jun-2005)
