Mason Financial (0273) to sell 52.69% of Co-Lead Holdings Ltd to Capital Union Inc.Circular
Company announcement, 30-Mar-2016
Mason doesn't say who owns the Purchaser, which it claims is an independent third party. The last time we heard (30-Jan-2009) it was controlled by Eugene Chuang Yue Chien, who is the brother of Henry Chuang Yueheng, who was Chairman of Mason until 1-Aug-2015. Under the Listing Rules, he remains a connected person for 1 year after that, and so does his brother, being his "associate". If the ownership of Capital Union has not changed, then this should be a connected transaction. Update: the circular on 23-Jun-2016 discloses 5 owners with 20% each (including a cousin) and denies any involvement of the brothers. It also reveals that Enerchina (0622) holds 5.44% of Co-Lead. Ristora Investments Ltd (owned by Karen Lo, wife of Eugene Chuang) has acquired West West Ltd (which CSPT (0139) sold to an unnamed party in Sep-2015), holding 5.32% of Co-Lead, and 210 shares (3.69%) once held by National Investments Fund (1227).
