Shareholders of Abans PLC have transferred their share holding to P N P Logistics (pvt) Ltd , a fully owned subsidiary of Abans International (pvt) Ltd.

Troubled Abans group which  is already suffering from  steep decline in profitability and high debt is for sale?

Don't worry they are planning to reshuffle the top management scientifically to resolve the crisis.

Similar to the recently concluded cabinet reshuffle which is said to have taken place scientifically, the employed may become unemployed & unemployed may become employed and Abans may continue as 'Rabans'.

Thank you Samaritan , Wimal Modawansa and sureshot for suggesting new names for Abans.


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 ?


Then the company should be named "Snaba" (same way "Singer" and "Regnis") , changing the letters "First to last" to "Last to first".

Who are the majority shareholders of PNP Logistic? Has that changed to a third party unconnected with Prestongies?

If PNP Logistic is a 100% owned by Abans International (pvt) Ltd then who are the majority shareholders of Abans International Pvt Ltd?




https://cdn.cse.lk/cmt/upload_report_file/1302_1518690624417.pdf

We have the information about Abans is because of the Debenture being listed on CSE. During Last 9 months and Last quarter Abans Group have made losses. They have raised nearly 2 bn from the debentures. but the company got only Rs 600 mn in Cash. So I would say they are in trouble... but group but net assets are worth Rs 9 billion.

Who are the majority shareholders of Abans International. Have the control of this has been sold?

Since Abans PLC is a quoted company and these information is not available to public ,
Regulators should have asked these questions?

Board of Directors: Why they are selected and how they survive?


Shareholders (minority ones in particular) entrusts the Board of Directors to protect and grow their investments.

In reality, Board Members are selected and ‘survive’ due to one or more of the following reasons:

Compliance – because you have to
Governance – because you truly believe in it
Technical – because you value the expertise they bring in
Political – because you are forced to!
Fix-it – because you never know when the skeletons will come off the closet!
Ornamental – because they look good on your corporate profile!



Now compare Corporate Governance to the conduct of independent Directors with conflict of interest.
