When poor governance meets liberal rules
First published in Business Times on June 4, 2019 By Mak Yuen Teen In April, (my colleague at the National University of Singapore Business School) Richard Tan and I released a report titled “Avoiding potholes in listed companies”, published by CPA Australia. The report identified 16 warning signs and red flags in corporate governance, disclosure and reporting that had differentiated 33 companies that had run into serious corporate governance or accounting problems, and comparable companies that had not. The study also found 14 other companies that had many of the same red flags and may therefore be at risk of suffering the same fate soon (although we did not name them in the published report). Allied Technologies Holdings was one of them. In the three years leading up to April

Hyflux’s board ticked boxes but let down stakeholders
At various points during the Hyflux saga so far, I have given comments to the media and made periodic postings about the company’s corporate governance and its restructuring. I have not to this point written extensive commentaries on it like I have done for many other companies, like SingPost, Datapulse, YuuZoo, Noble and others. There were a number of reasons. First, I thought there were enough people commenting on every single development (in fact, I had turned down requests for comments from the media on several occasions). Second, I did not think there was the kind of egregious behaviour that we have seen in many other companies, even though I thought the Hyflux board was flawed and let down stakeholders. More recently, there was a third reason – I had set a major examinati

More Trouble Ahead for ICP and Datapulse Technology Shareholders?
By Mak Yuen Teen On 20 April, ICP responded to SGX’s queries regarding the resignation of Stephen James Burt, Director of Travelodge Hotels (Asia) Pte. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Mr Burt had resigned  with effect from 15 April and his resignation was announced by ICP that same day. On 17 April, I posted an article raising questions about the circumstances surrounding the resignation of Mr Burt.  I questioned whether the sponsor had asked the following questions: a. Was Mr Burt required to serve any notice under his employment contract, and if so, why did he not serve out his notice to enable ICP to find a replacement? b. Had Mr Burt already tendered his resignation earlier, and if so, when did he do so and why did ICP not announce it at that time? SGX did not

Datapulse Technology and the resignation of ICP’s head of hotel management business
By Mak Yuen Teen On April 15, ICP announced the resignation of 63-year old Stephen James Burt, its director of Travelodge Hotels (Asia) Pte Ltd who was responsible for the group’s hotel management business. The effective date of cessation was the day of the announcement. The reason given was “to pursue personal interests”. RHT Capital, the continuing sponsor, included the standard boilerplate statement that based on its enquiries, it is satisfied that there are  no other material reasons for Mr Burt’s cessation. Did the sponsor ask the following questions in arriving at its determination?: a. Was Mr Burt required to serve any notice under his employment contract, and if so, why did he not serve out his notice to enable ICP to find a replacement? b. Had Mr Burt alre
