  • New Red Flags At China Gerui Advanced Materials Group, Ltd. (NasdaqGS:CHOP) - 2/2 1 comment
    Apr 17, 2013 11:26 AM | about stocks: CHOP

    In this report, we present a number of reasons why investors in China Gerui Advanced Materials Group, Ltd. (NASDAQ:CHOP), as well as its auditor and the SEC, should be especially cautious. In the previous post we investigated what appears to be some contradicting information with respect to CHOP's 2011 presented results. This post addresses the likely the lack of transparency regarding the company's operations in China.

    1. Corporate Structure per 20-F For the Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2011 (Link)

    1. Henan Green was formed in China in December 2000 by Zhengzhou Company together with six individuals
    2. In December 2006, Zhengzhou Company transferred all its equity interest in Henan Green to 11
    3. On October 21, 2008, the then shareholders of Henan Green transferred all their equity interest in Henan Green to Wealth Rainbow.
    4. Wealth Rainbow was organized in 2008 for the sole purpose of acquiring and holding all of the outstanding equity capital in Henan Green.
    5. Wealth Rainbow was acquired by China Gerui on November 28, 2008.

    It follows that the only operating Entity within CHOP is Henan Green Complex Materials Co., Ltd.

    According to the Company's SEC filings, the local (Chinese Simplified) name of Henan Green Complex Materials Co., Ltd. (Thereafter: "Henan Green") is:

    河南鸽瑞复合材料有限公司
