Bubbles and troubles in Hong Kong
Pour yourself a coffee and digest this long article as we investigate several ongoing abusive "open offers" and placings as well as show you who's been making out in multi-billion-dollar bubbles. We call on regulators and rule-makers to take action. (24-Sep-2015)

HK Court of Appeal, 29-Jul-2010
Value Divergence, part 2
What's going on at Value Convergence (0821)? We list the placees in the convertible bond issue, which has been delayed, and analyse their connections to a network of other companies we have written about before. Is VC joining that network? We also look at the massive dilution that awaits shareholders of China Fortune (0290). (10-Dec-2009)
China Motion Telecom - recent history
We examine the recent history of China Motion Telecom (0989), including two aborted acquisitions and a highly dilutive placing "for working capital" at a time when the company was flush with cash. Why did the board agree to that and where did the shares go? We also query the sustainability of margins in a recent acquisition from CMT's controlling shareholders. (10-Dec-2009)
China Vanguard's Grand Promise
China Vanguard (8156) bought an asset from its controlling shareholder at 6.5 times the price at which China Motion (0989) turned it down. Now it is struggling to redeem convertible bonds the target issued to Goldman Sachs and Evolution Capital. We also query a year-end HK$139m cash outflow to buy a company which was once owned by the controlling shareholder, with negative net assets. Finally we look at a pending acquisition by Aptus, its subsidiary. (10-Dec-2009)
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)
