3)These employees have no means to buy the shares and FCID should investigate under money laundering act(Source-Employees of Abans PLC)
4)CDS accounts were opened for
  MRS. M V I F FERNANDO, MR. A H A JAYASINGHE, MR. D S KARUNAKARAN, MR. N N PERERA and    Mr S C H GAMAGE and MISS. I N JALALDEEN with Acquity stock brokers and JB stock brokers and shares sold fraudulently without payment of money.(Source- Acquity stock brokers and JB stock brokers.)

One of the independent directors have claimed legal charges of Rs 5.2 Mn in the name of his sister in law.This was found out by the Central Bank.Subsequently the inspecting officers were requested to put their fingings under  the carpet.

Common sense tell you to withdraw all your fixed deposits now
Also for the retailers to delete this company from the watch list and not even read any articles about it
Avoid like the plague

Hats off to fortune teller and Wimal

If the Name is to be changed  to Ironwood Finance PLC , the total share holding of troubled Abans group  and proxy shareholding needs to be reduced to at least 49.99 %.

AFSL SHARE DROPS FROM RS 69.90 TO RS 25,00

Post by fortuneteller on Mon Jul 10, 2017 8:46 am

DOES THIS NEWS ITEM ON EXCHANGE CONTROL FRAUD HAVE ANY RELEVANCE TO TWO SENIOR OFFICIALS OF "A FINANCE COMPANY" FOR WHICH MANDATORY OFFER IS MADE?                                                                                                 
•Customs probe continues into luxury car undervaluation. •Sri Lanka Customs is still to complete an investigation into a massive vehicle racket of importing 1500 undervalued luxury cars in 2015 causing a loss of billions of rupees to the country, officials alleged. •These investigations are yet to be completed due to the complex nature of the racket involving a private vehicle firm and a leasing company (which changed its name after the fraud was detected) which is a subsidiary of a bank, Customs spokesman Dharmasena Kahandawa reported. •This private vehicle importer had registered a company overseas and the luxury cars were imported through this company for several local car dealers, he said, adding that a leasing company which (changed its name after fraud was detected) is a subsidiary of a bank has provided loans to import those vehicles. •The modus operandi of the racket was to open Letters of Credit (LCs) for a value less than the actual value under the name of the overseas company and brought down those vehicles without directly importing from the manufacturing company in Germany. •Racketeers have imported those vehicles using duty free and duty slashed permits issued to Ministers, MPs, provincial councilors and senior government officials, a Customs trade union leader said. •He noted that a senior official of customs has lodged a complaint at the Bribery or Corruption Investigation Commission claiming that this custom duty fraud had taken place with the knowledge of a top politician in the country. •Already the Government has forfeited a staggering Rs. 57 billion in revenue granting duty free concessions for import of vehicles for public servants, Treasury data revealed. •The duty free permit only allows a senior official to import a vehicle valued at less than US$35,000. Most officials sell those permits as they don’t have money to import a vehicle even on a permit. •Some motor traders purchase these permits and use the permits to import luxury vehicles, he said. •He said these companies also receive a tariff relief on the declared value of less than US$35,000 when importing the vehicles. •He said the companies pay about 0.45 per cent tax to the Customs instead of the actual taxes of 352.12 per cent. •At least Rs 13.9 million per vehicle was being lost by not levying the actual duty, levies and other charges, he disclosed.

In this country all frauds are buried under the carpet. Irrespective of many committees, agencies set up in looking for thieves involved nothing has been revealed over years. At current pace government coffers will never be filled with recoveries of lost revenue. This means whoever rules the country a group of thieves simply manage robbing of peoples' money.

Abans has always manipulated.
 -When the company was formed no cash was put in. -Hire Purchase portfolio was transferred as share capital.(Central Bank pf Sri Lanka).
 -When listing was made shares were fraudulently transferred to employees to cheat the CSE/SEC on free float rule.(CSE/SEC)
-Those employees have no means to buy the shares and FCID should investigate under money laundering act(Employees of Abans)
-If the initial share holder list is checked these employees could be identified(Varners International-company secretaries)
-CDS accounts were opened with Acquity and JB stock brokers and shares sold fraudulently without payment of money.(Acquity and JB stock brokers.)
-When private placement was made shares were issued to Ironwood , company owned by independent director and audit committee chairman Hiran Embuldeniya at a discounted price of Rs 25.00 when the share was trading at 69.90 ,cheating the minority share holders(stock exchange records)
-Hiran Embuldeniya requested approval to buy shares even before the Company was incorporated(Central Bank of Sri Lanka)
-Seylan bank offered 2 times the asset value to buy the shares but private placement was at 1.4 times asset price to Ironwood.(Seylan Bank)
-A company named Able Investment was set up to buy and transfer shares of employees and the rate at which such company bought the shared should be the mandatory offer price as Abans and Ironwood have acted in consort(Registrar of companies)
-Poor CSE and SEC , They were cheated and taken for a ride(Investors and General public.)
-Mr Hiran Embuldeniya common Director of Abans And Ironwood continue to serve as Audit Committee Chairman and Independent Director(Varners International-company secretaries)
-WHAT A MANUPULATION OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE !!!

Largest family owned groups of companies is under investigation for money laundering?

Post by Wimal Modawansa on Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:43 pm

One of the largest family owned groups of companies is under investigation for money laundering?

Details of companies that are subsidiaries of this group which are controlled and owned and the  details including  directors, shareholders and balance sheets for the years 2013 and 2016 are being investigated?

Since this group has created number paper  companies with proxy directors most of whom are employees and fictitious overseas shareholders there could have been a possible attempt of money-laundering.

As per the published data most of the employees who nominee shareholders are multi millionaires.(Source- CSE records and employee verification).

ABANS FINANCE MISLEADS CSE AGAIN

Post by fortuneteller on Thu Aug 03, 2017 12:56 pm

Abans Finance has confirmed the free float as 8.10% to CSE.

As at 31st March 2017 Abans Plc and Ironwood Holding combine owned 91.55% the other connected parties owned 6.26%. Hence the total should be 97.81%. Accordingly the free float should be 2.19% and not 8.10%.

Dirty Abans Group has shown their ugly face again by releasing profit figures to the media before releasing to Stock Exchange.

Abans Finance downgraded to associate company

Post by Wimal Modawansa on Tue Aug 08, 2017 12:48 pm

Abans Finance PLC (member of troubled Abans group) profits for the quarter ended June 2017 has been Rs 9 Mn dropped from 35Mn the previous year same quarter?

This is despite stated capital increasing from Rs 382 Mn to Rs 1,121 Mn  by private placement and Abans group downgrading to associate status?

Is this why the buyers are at Rs 22.00 which is lower than mandatory offer price of Rs 25.00?

Post by Wimal Modawansa on Tue Aug 15, 2017 5:24 pm

DISASTER STRIKES ABANS FINANCE PLC

Share Capital has increased to Rs1,120 Mn from Rs 567 Mn (97.5%)

HOWEVER Profits of Abans Finance have steeply declined to Rs 9 Mn from Rs 34 Mn (72.7%)

Impairment (provisions for bad loans) has increased by 19.5%.

Customer deposits have dropped .

Decline in margin and no growth in loans and advances.

REASONS FOR FAILURE OF ABANS FINANCE

Increase in bad loans

Reduction in margins to achieve loan growth.

Adverse image in the market, hampering deposit growth.

No business knowledge of Ironwood Investments on financial services.

Interference of major shareholders in day to day operations.

Conflict of interest of Directors to unjustly enrich themselves.
