    • Does this mean the stock price will not move and be around $1.83 , untill all the shares are bought? If that is the case then why should anybody buy now?

    • Mike's point is well taken. I'd add that, prior to the October 2012 PIPE, U.S. ADR holders arguably owned nearly 46% of the company. Following the placement with Heng Rui Xin, that ownership fell to a bit more than 36%.

      We obviously need to wait for the final tally to be certain, but the preliminary indication is that U.S. ADR holders' ownership will be reduced to around 32% as a consequence of the placement with Fulai Investments.
