Thanks for the quick reply.

 

However, this does not explain why all the other exchanges are also not trading... eg. Tradegate, Xetra, Frankfurt, etc. 

 

Wondering what's up with that.

Agree with your thoughts Investment Novice. Some peeps have lost big Moola on SNH.

For the bottom of the barrel investors, this could be equally devastating to their portfolios if it crashes and burns towards zero.

I have had fun day trading this share. I am sure many others are day trading too.

Just keep heads up and close to any SENS that may arise

Steinhoff investors will not recoup their losses
BL PREMIUM

15 JUNE 2018 - 05:09 ANN CROTTY


Investors who lost billions of rand when Steinhoff International’s shares collapsed amid one of SA’s worst accounting scandals have very little chance of recouping their losses, according to one of the country’s largest fund managers.





Excluding Steinhoff Africa Retail (Star), which is in the process of changing its name to Pepkor as its seeks to distance itself from its scandal-hit parent, the businesses are "heavily loss-making" and "there’s little probability of material upside in the equity once Steinhoff repays its creditors and settles any potential legal claims", Coronation Fund Managers said.
In a letter to clients seen by Business Day, Kirshni Totaram, global head of institutional business at Coronation, said the company had sold its "remaining position in Steinhoff", prompted by an adjustment of the investment case to reflect additional information that had come to light since January. The extent of the overstatement of the historical profitability of Steinhoff was far worse than expected, she said.


It is unclear whether the 'remaining position' referred only to Steinhoff shares held on behalf of Coronation’s institutional clients or to all of its clients





It is a blow for Steinhoff, which is struggling to stay in business after the accounting scandal wiped out more than 90% of its value. The company has more than 40 local brands in more than 30 countries, according to its website.
On Thursday, a spokesperson for the fund manager referred Business Day to a Bloomberg screen grab revealing that the fund manager had sold off a substantial chunk of its shares, leaving it with 2.62% of the scandal-hit retail group. The company would give no further information.
It is unclear whether the "remaining position" referred only to Steinhoff shares held on behalf of Coronation’s institutional clients or to all of its clients. Business Day was unable to speak to Totaram about the letter. CEO Anton Pillay and chief investment officer Karl Leinberger did not respond to requests for comment on Thursday.
Coronation, which had one of the largest institutional exposures to Steinhoff, lost an estimated R14bn in the months after the December disclosure of "accounting irregularities".
In January, Leinberger wrote a detailed account of why Coronation had built up a hefty investment in Steinhoff. At that stage he wrote that stakeholders were in an information vacuum.
He said possible outcomes ranged from best-case scenario of tax evasion and inadequate disclosure of related-party transactions to a worst-case scenario of sophisticated fraud orchestrated by the CEO.
"The stock could just as easily be worth more than the current market price as it could be less. At current prices, we are therefore likely to retain our equity holding in the company until more information has been made available publicly," wrote Leinberger.
At that stage the share price had already slid to about R7. On Thursday it closed at R1.26.
Totaram told clients this week that the decision to sell would not prevent them from participating in any group legal action against Steinhoff.
"It is our intention to take appropriate legal action against Steinhoff on behalf of all clients who wish us to do so, and to the extent legally possible, against any other parties that were complicit in any wrongdoing." The information that contributed to Coronation’s reassessment of its Steinhoff exposure included Christo Wiese’s decision to sue the company for about R59bn.
"The sale of 6% of Steinhoff’s stake in Star through an accelerated book build for a consideration far below our assessment of fair value" had contributed to the reassessment, she said
This week the Steinhoff crisis spread wider as Dutch shareholder association VEB announced it had issued summons against Deloitte for its audit work at Steinhoff.

Shooh a whole article to state the obvious.
Disposal fantastic as reduces burden, credit risk, improved margin, focus on other entities..etc
Article refers to snh assets as all loss making....only true if all financials lumped together and impairments included.
Legal cases quantum and balance sheet required to get a sense of valuation.
Snh will also aim to make recoveries which we may assume is minimum.
Great to see legal efforts against other parties with big pockets as this will be where most of the recoup will be made apart from some share recovery.
Its now a waiting game..
1. Agreement on restructure
2. Financials and balance sheet
3. Forensic report.

At the end of three years it may not be necessary to repay debt..............could refinance if the company is cleansed and there are some legal settlements.

We continue to pray for some recovery for shareholders and lots of profit for the bottom of barrel scrapers....

Hoping the mal practice insurance for auditors bankers and directors hav big pockets....and of course the companies themselves...wonder how much blae snh can defer...and what the company liability will be versus individual fraudsters...
Not clear cut..but certainly unlikey for shareholders to recoup losses from snh...that is lose lose....

To take legal action against auditors that may have deep pockets is a long shot I reckon.
The auditors may have had a liability cap agreement in place when they sign an agreement to undertake audits so deep pockets may not be able to be picked by hungry law firms. (Would be very surprised if they did not have such in their contracts)
The claimants would likely have to prove fraudulent intent by the auditors in order to have any claim considered whatsoever.
If the auditors just did standard audits of accounts then there would be no grounds to claim agaist them.
(Seeing that the fraud was comitted by Jooste and co, frontrunning evidence having come to light recently in deals done in Australia a number of years ago would tend to support the argument that SNH management were adept at fraud, kind of tough to prove that the auditors were the main antagonists.)
German case law on this topic may be worthwhile looking into, not the first time 3rd parties have attempted to sue auditors in similar cases.

First of many disposals happening(i think anyway). Steinhoff is selling Kika/Leiner for around 450 mil euro.

 

Like Invest Novice said this is actually a good thing as that was a struggling entity and was not adding much value in terms of profits.

Steinhoff International gets creditor support for two finance vehicles.

This is good news. Especially, if you look at the attached screenshot and the 50+ mil volume in trades :)

This is very interesting. Pls dont be fooled in thinking all creditors will support though i do personally think that will happen.
What is more interesting is the price jump and profit taking...will expect to see lots of this...
And ..the quantumof buyers coming in sure..is a sign that many are waiting on the sidelines to get in...may see significant movements in either direction...

You may also request the full shareholding directly from steinhoff investment relations. They will provide you a full list of all their shareholders and the shareholding as at end May.
You will need to look through the information and compare to previous months an importantly to Dec.
Compushare provides similar information. Do your own analysis and dont rely on opinion and fake news

Recent articles testament....market goes bananas with 50%...a 50c recovery compared to a 5000c loss..is not a market going crazy.....another article...snh is an sa enron...perhaps a SA versio of tycos that had a similar catastrophe in the early 2000...but not an enron...

I have been commenting and posting based on my own research..consultation with analysts lawyears and travels to germany and netherlands....

Be good to get robust discussion albeit overwhelming fraud and lack of information.

I have also invested and continue to buy as this is part of my high risk allocation of a balanced diverse multi asset portfolio.

Hopefully sa investors will have sufficient liquidity to jump on the bandwagon with trend reversal and shareholders that have lost in the past can have an opportunity to recoup through recovery and new holdings when signs of stability present itself.

You will argue that the legal quantum is yet to be to be defined. The market has already priced in doomsday...a settlement is likely and only after a full and thorough investigation and trabsferanc of blame on other parties including Deloitte and banks that suported the pepkor assets and steinhof tie up. Snh will only be liable for a perhaps 5 to 10 prcent of the total claim. Hence all affected will sue to get a piece of the action including shareholders including coronation..sgareholders as you know would be foolish to sue themselves...as their best bet for value is recovery...
There are plenty of corporate case studies that support a realistic journey....many yeas in court and finally settlment....perhaps this is why there is still an investment case here...get in cheap....lock down for 5 years and see astronomical returns even at 1.20 a share.
Risk a loss of r1.20 versus a gain of 10 to 30x over 5 years....this is my investment philosophy currently....

Hi. you have to get shareholding register from computicket. I looked at the end of april. Have not reviewed end of may. Other readers may have this and can share with you...its interesting the journ alists are not tracking this.
Sent from my SM-G950F using Sharenet Sharechat mobile app


Computicket is a ticket booking business.
If you say that institutional shareholders are buying script in this counter just interested in the source of this info.
If you are referencing computershare, they look pretty dodge to me, lots of complaints about them on the web, think I would be circumspect about making financial decisions based on info from this company.
Last i heard Coronation was instigating litigation against SNH, not buying more shares.

I must be missing something here.
