The first quarter profit drop was even worse from Rs 35 Mn to Rs 9 Mn. The Company is reported to be run by Harward graduates but, the performance does not reflect this.

 The officer responsible for increase in non performing advances , COO has pleaded with the Directors to give him a chance to continue on sympathetic grounds.

Abans Finance was bought by an independent director of Abans group at deeply discounted price cheating the minority share holders.

Abans group incurred a loss of Rs 35 Mn during the last quarter.

Abans group six months profit dropped from Rs 337 Mn to Rs 52 Mn which is a drop of 84%.

One cannot blame only the Pestonjees or the Independent Director  Silva Wijeratne for this bad performance. The  other Independent Director Eran himbuldenitya cheated the minority shareholders of Abans Finance Plc. Independent Directors with conflict of interest such as Eran Himbuldeniya will have to be declared as Non-Independent Director as per the governance requirements.

CENTRAL BANK FINDS MAJOR MANIPULATIONS AND NON COMPLIANCE WITH DIRECTIVES TO REPORT FALSE PROFITS.


CEO is only a puppet and does not get involved in any business promotion and always on the computer preparing his assignments for studies.

Two staff members of Ironwood Investments , one of the major share holder works as full time employees and runs the business and gives directions to staff.


COO who knows nothing other than recoveries has also messed up and the Non performing assets increased from 534 Mn to 805 Mn. COO is also not allowing the recovery staff to check the payments on new loans which are in arrears.

Both are planning to collect some fictitious cheques from customers and manipulate the profits for December 2017.

The Chief Internal Auditor is also assisting the management to manipulate the profits.

The Chief Financial Officer has quit his job and the head of risk also has submitted his resignation after the CBSL Audit.

Small number of shares are traded at high prices to manipulate  the market price.


Be cautious and  don't get carried away and looses your money.

Abans Finance PLC  share which was trading at Rs 69.90 has dropped after decline in profits. Independent Director  Himubuldeniya's paper Company bought money from Cayman Island and bought at Rs 25.00 defrauding minority share holders

Trades are presently at Rs 22.00 levels but small quantities of 2 to 20  shares are trading at higher prices due to manipulation. Don't get cought to   - "Pumping and Dumping".

“Ironwood Investment” , Abans group and proxies are manipulating the share price of Abans Finance PLC by “Pump and dump" (P&D) which is a form of microcap stock fraud that involves artificially inflating the price of an owned share through false and misleading trades. They undertook to reduce their holding to satisfy minimum float requirements.

SEC and CSE should investigate the trades of small number of shares traded at artificially high prices to mislead investors.

The Managing Director , General Manger ,Chief Financial Officer and Head of Risk of Abans Finance PLC have resigned. Any idea of the outcome of the Central Bank investigation on the Company? Are the Deposits safe and will the share price go down to Rs 15.00 to Rs 17.00 levels?
Is the share worth at Rs 15.00 the rate at which Singer Finance is trading?

Is this the same Abans group which was closely associated with the earlier regime?


They obtained a land from BOI to construct low cost houses at concessionary rate and later constructed a motor assembly plant ?


Obtained Colombo Commercial Company property to construct a mall and an apartment by passing the tender procedures without proper cabinet approval ?
