Lau, Joseph Chi Yuen 劉智遠

SFC action is too little, too late for minority shareholders of Luxey (8041)
The SFC seeks disqualification of 2 ex-directors, but fails to seek any recovery of Luxey's HK$350m, 7-fold overpayment in an acquisition from an alleged nominee of then Chairman Joseph Lau. We first documented this case and numerous other suspicious transactions involving Luxey and other listed companies in a series of articles in 2012. This is the only one to see any action, and it falls far short of what is needed to provide a deterrent. (14-Apr-2019)
Joseph Lau Chi Yuen v Peter Ho Pui Tsun
HK Court of First Instance, 12-May-2015
"There is absolutely no merit in his application. It strikes me as a cynical effort to attempt to postpone the inevitable enforcement of the debt against him by way of bankruptcy proceedings" - says Justice Conrad Seagroatt of defendant Peter Ho Pui Tsun.
Joseph Lau Chi Yuen v Peter Ho Pui Tsun
HK Court of First Instance, 13-Jan-2014
Regarding shares in CIL Holdings Ltd (0479).
Raking muck, Part 6
Concluding our hexalogy, we look at a recent deal by COMG (0254). Existing shareholders were diluted to 2.54% in an acquisition valued at HK$1242m for a business which would need capital of HK$3.6m. We estimate that the vendor has already cashed in about $1812m by selling convertible bonds and shares. We also look at what comes next for COMG, and some unfinished business for the authorities. (11-Mar-2012)
Raking muck, Part 3
We now connect Joseph Lau to Executive Talent, and focus on a series of dubious transactions by Hycomm and the bubble in its stock while it did the coal mine hokey cokey, from which bubble Joseph Lau has profited hugely. We also look at the creation of Inno-Tech and the youngest infant mortality on GEM, Codebank. (5-Mar-2012)
Raking muck, Part 2
Continuing our series, we look at a set of over-priced acquisitions and questionable transactions by China Post e-Commerce and others, building a matrix which demonstrates the close connections between the persons involved. We call on the SFC to investigate. (27-Feb-2012)
