uh-oh

Well, looking from it purely from Dahua's founder perspective, it's a lot better to be diversified and not locked into Dahua stock, which if or when it falls, could wipe him out.

It is tricky though, if he sells too much he could spark a panic which would hurt himself.

Downward price pressure due to dilutive effects could also come if the incoming President is granted shares, warrants or options, as part of his comp package, which is typical (in US companies at least.)

Here is the recent Phase 3 Dahua employee stock plan. We have not gone through it and not sure if we will but for those interested, take a look. Anything interesting, let us know.

Personally i thought this file explain why Mr Fu sold the stock recently.

As this file mention the Max money for the empolyee stock plan would be 116Million USD.

And the money should come from the shareholder's Interest free loan.So Mr Fu need to sell 122Million USD stock to gather the money.

 

shareholder's Interest free loan

#3, thanks. Where did you see this? I'd like to understand this better.

 The total amount of funds for the establishment of the employee stock ownership plan after the approval of the shareholders' meeting of this plan (Draft)

An upper limit of 800 million yuan, with "share" as the subscription unit, each share of 1 yuan, the upper limit of 80000

Million yuan. ESOP holders have a specific share of the number of employees, the final confirmation of the amount paid, the funds

Sources are the controlling shareholder of the company, interest free loans and other methods permitted by laws and administrative regulations.

Quite few years ago there were two companies, Huawei and ZTE, fighting the similar war in telecom space as Hik vs DH here.  Starting the race running like neck to neck, shoulder to shoulder.   Fast forward to now,  Huawei ends up overtaken Ericsson but ZTE got lost along the way.  

Guess history is repeating itself, again.   

 

Different from Huawei and ZTE, Huawei is private company, ZTE is state owned company like HIK.  Dahua and HIK both publich anyhow. 

Laughing all the way to the bank
