TAG | Chinese companies
Comments off · Posted by admin in FINRA
Throughout 2010, the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) began an investigation into Chinese companies in the United States that became public through a process called “reverse mergers.” The term, reverse merger, is also referred to as a reverse takeover or RTO. In an RTO, a Chinese company is acquired by an American “shell” company. An American shell company is a company which already has stock trading in the U.S., but the company does not operate a business or own assets. These Chinese companis merge into the shell. Through this process, the Chinese company can be brought public without the regulatory scrutiny of the Initial Public Offering (IPO) process in the United Sates.
On February 1, 2011, the SEC charged eight individuals and three RTO companies – China Digital, Global Peopleline and m-Wise – in a $33 million fraud. The SEC alleges that defendants engaged in schemes to pump up the price and trading volume then dumped (sold) millions of shares of these securities into the market making millions of dollars in profits, leaving unsuspecting investors with shares worth next to nothing. Other such examples include China Energy Savings Technology, Fuwei Films, and China Water and Drinks.
The U.S. exchange trade officials have halted the trading of four Chinese companies brought public by WestPark Capital of California. WestPark brought the following four Chinese based companies public: NIVS IntelliMedia (NIV), China Intelligent Lighting and Electronics (CIL), China Century Dragon Media (CDM), and China Electric Motor (CELM). Allegedly to inflate their income statements and assets on their balance sheets.
