The Securities and Futures Commission has ordered health drinks maker Real Nutriceutical Group to suspend its stocks from trading in Hong Kong on Wednesday morning, according to a company filing to the city’s stock exchange.

Real announced in March that it suffered a net loss of 86.7 million yuan (US$13.1 million) in 2017 on decreased sales of its drinks products in China. Its shares closed at 20 HK cents on Tuesday.

US-based short seller Glaucus Research had previously accused the company of cooking its books in 2015, reporting conflicting revenue numbers in its filings to China’s Ministry of Commerce (Mofcom) and those to the Hong Kong stock exchange. A combined revenue of 839 million yuan for two subsidiaries generating 90 per cent of its total revenue between 2011 and 2013 reported to Mofcom was 84 per cent less than what was filed to the Hong Kong bourse, Glaucus alleged.

As a result, Real’s shares were suspended from trading for two months and only resumed after issuing a rebuttal that called the short seller’s claims “erroneous and misleading”.
