RE: San Teh
a relative passed me the annual report and I like what I see........

the company not gonna do well this year but it is possible that Mr Kao would take opportunity to privatise the company since he collected the 30 cents dividend and free float of only 30%

Company is going to focus on property and I think with Mr Kao on the ground in China, he definitely knows the market demand better the most of us.....if I want to bet on property play in china, I think I would bet on San Teh. (surprisingly they still cannot turnaround the pvc and hotel biz....)

for those who have ENDURANCE and DEEP POCKETS, might be worth a look.....

no vested interest.....I have SUPER ENDURANCE but empty pockets ^^

Wouldn't it be smarter for Mr Kao to privatize *before* he paid out that special dividend? San Teh was trading at depressed valuation (< spec div) for a long time before that catalyst.

And if he didn't do it then when it's cheaper, why would he do it now?

Sorry, this is not meant as an attack. I'm just trying to understand your hypothesis better. Thx.

RE: San Teh
Yes he should have done it.

Mr Kao did not privatise when it is dirt cheap....why did he not do it? maybe the property story was not developing then and the company has a so-so hotel biz and pvc biz , maybe he does not have the cash, maybe for other rational or irrational reasons......

Now let's say there is something that is worth $1 and the value is growing.....you could have bought it when it is 10 cents but for some reasons or so you did not.....now it is 50 cents....would you buy it? or would you give it a pass since you did not buy it at 10 cents when it is dirt cheap?

Would Mr Kao give it a pass?

I am not implying that he would make an offer....I think he should if he is bullish on its property biz in China but personally I hope he don't and that the share price continues to languish with the hotel and pvc biz doing so-so in 2013........so that....^^

RE: San Teh
An unique way of marketing, but wonder if it will have any effect. Too bad the hotels are in Nantong and Suzhou. It will be useful for me if they are in Guangzhou.

As a token of appreciation for the continued support of our valued shareholders, the Board of Directors of the Company is pleased to announce that the Company will be giving a Privilege Card (the “ST Card”) to its shareholders.
The ST Card shall entitle the shareholders, their family members and friends to a special room rate and 10% discount on food and beverage at our Nantong and Suzhou hotels.

Ex-date : 1-Aug-2013
