PYN Elite continues to divest from Vietnam Japan Medical Equipment

PYN Elite Fund continued to sell more than 3.11 million shares of Vietnam-Japan Medical Equipment (HoSE: JVC) on September 1 by order matching method on the floor. With the closing price of 5,250 VND/share, the Finnish fund is estimated to have collected more than 16.3 billion VND.

The sale of foreign funds took place in the context of JVC’s recent strong increase in price. Specifically, after two months, the market price of this stock has increased by 60% to 5,470 dong/share at the end of September 10.

PYN Elite Fund has become a major shareholder of Viet Nhat Medical Equipment since the end of 2016 in the context of many foreign shareholders such as Dragon Capital, Vietnam Equity Holding … repeatedly divested after the incident of Chairman Le Van Xuan being prosecuted. At that time, JVC shares fell sharply from the price of VND22,000 per share to about VND3,000-4,000 per share.

In terms of business activities, the medical equipment supplier company has suffered a loss in the last 6 consecutive quarters, resulting in a cumulative loss of more than 1,092 billion dong as of June 30. With this result, JVC shares were changed from warning to control status and only traded in the afternoon session since July 6. However, the shares have been traded full-time again as controlled securities since July 14, after the enterprise sent a document to HoSE about the plan to remedy the business situation and the exception.
