'Major' Findings Of FAB's Internal Investigation Continue To Leave Investors In The Dark
- FAB internal investigation found that only a “small number” of kiosks have media download capability.
- Cash balance confirmations cannot be relied upon in China.
- Most “Intelligent Media Kiosks” actually contain no media at all.
- FAB falsely claims Wang Lirong never worked for the company and claims to have filed a lawsuit against her.
- Eight-month NYSE trading halt served no purpose whatsoever and damaged all investors, long and short.
FAB Universal's Undisclosed Acquisition Of Beijing Vanpos Telecom
- FAB has repeatedly disclosed that it has precisely 3,954 media kiosks in Beijing since 2012.
- In 1H 2013, FAB failed to disclose its acquisition of Vanpos, a company having around 1,000 kiosks in Beijing.
- FAB's Beijing static kiosk count makes no sense in light of the 1,000 kiosks acquired via Vanpos.
- FAB rebranded the 1,000 additional kiosks with FAB 5c logo stickers, likely to fool its auditor and other gatekeepers.
FAB Universal: Glaring Contradictions In Its 2013 10-K
- On July 16th, 2014, FAB Universal (FU) will make an oral appeal to the NYSE’s April 28th, 2014 delisting decision.
- Presumably FAB will try to explain how its secret $16.3 million Chinese bond offering was not a sufficiently bad corporate governance-lapse to merit a delisting.
- FAB will also have to explain how its decision to downgrade its auditor somehow made sense given its admitted lack of internal control over its Chinese subsidiaries.
- In today’s report, I analyze and expose contradictions in FAB’s new description of its media kiosk business and question why FAB’s former auditor was unable to perform cash balance confirmations.
