Blues Trust writes to the Securities and Futures Commission again

Posted on 17 Apr 2015

logo100x100On 10th April the Trust posted an article giving an update on Disclosures of Interest made by shareholders in Birmingham International Holdings Limited (BIHL) to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. We explained that there had been some positive developments in that some of the concerns raised in our earlier letter to the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) in Hong Kong appear to have been addressed through new or revised disclosure notices. We also noted that there appear to be some significant errors in Carson Yeung’s recent disclosure notice and that we are still waiting for Wang Lei to submit a revised disclosure notice to correct what appear to be some inconsistencies with other information.

Creating Change for Future Football

Posted on 17 Apr 2015

FANsmallIn November 2014, Blues Trust were invited, via STAND Fanzine, to London to meet with representatives from Trusts and supporter groups of clubs that were in crisis.

Disclosures of Interest Update

Disclosures and understanding who owns our club

Blues Trust - Logo (website)Shareholders with more than a 5% interest in the Blues holding company (Birmingham International Holdings Limited – BIHL) must, under Hong Kong stock exchange rules, make public disclosures in various circumstances – for example when they buy or sell significant numbers of shares. A key objective of the disclosure rules is “to enable investors to identify the persons who control, or are in a position to control, interests in shares in listed corporations”. This is where the interests of investors in BIHL coincide with those of Blues fans – we too have a strong interest in the identity of those who control interests in BIHL shares, as ultimately they control our club. Daniel Ivery has posted a piece expanding on the importance of share ownership on his Often Partisan web-site.
