SFC fines SFM HK Management Ltd HK$1.5m for accidentally short-selling bonus shares of Great Wall Motor (2333)
After Great Wall Motor (2333) went ex a 2:1 bonus issue, SFM accidentally sold its bonus shares before they were issued. This is another reminder that bonus issues in effect temporarily delist part of the company, in this case, 2/3, because only the pre-bonus shares are tradeable between the ex-date and the delivery date. In September, the SFC fined Huatai Financial Holdings Ltd HK$800k for doing the same thing on the same bonus issue.
