Arrest Warrant for Alleged Insider Dealer

Hong Kong and China

A mainland Chinese resident who did not appear at court in Hong Kong to answer three insider dealing charges laid by the Securities and Futures Commission now faces arrest.

As a result of her non appearance The Eastern Magistrate’s Court has issued an arrest warrant for Tang Xian.

The SFC alleges that Tang, a then manager of the finance department of Yulong Computer Telecommunication Scientific (Shenzhen) Co Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of China Wireless, knew that China Wireless recorded a significant decline in profit earnings for the months of January, February and March 2011. 

Price Sensitive

On 18 May 2011, China Wireless Technologies Limited (China Wireless) issued a profit warning announcement.  On 19 May 2011, China Wireless’ share price fell 28.9 percent. 

The SFC alleges that, between 11 March and 27 April 2011, Tang traded whilst she knew of information that was price sensitive and was not public until China Wireless disclosed it. 

Tang made a total profit of about $130,000 from the exercise of 48,000 share options and from the subsequent sale of the converted shares and also avoided a loss of about $192,000 from the sale of 140,000 China Wireless shares she already owned.

Chinese Resident

The SFC told the Court that Tang resides in the Mainland and that she had not returned to Hong Kong since 26 November 2011 after the SFC’s investigation started.

Upon the SFC’s application, Mr Chu Chung Keung, Magistrate of the Eastern Magistracy, issued an arrest warrant against Tang.
