List of Chinese Reverse Mergers

There have been quite a few Chinese frauds exposed in the past 6 months - many of these were listed on U.S. markets via reverse mergers.  Essentially this is an old shell of a listing that an existing company can move into - sort of like when crab sheds its old shell and moves into better digs.  Many of these companies have been exposed by a handful of firms who specialize in shorting (i.e. the Muddy Waters types).

Bloomberg has a list of all Chinese reverse mergers so one can assume someone at these handful of firms is looking into each and every one.   I am sure some babies will get thrown out with the bathwater but I would not go near these with your 10 foot pole, since waking up one morning to a -80% return is not my cup of tea.   In full disclosure I've spoken (and been bullish) on a few of these over the past 3-4 years.  The extent of fraud from the Chinese has been a bit stunning to me - I guess being like Enron is cool.


The following companies are based in China and gained listings on U.S. exchanges after conducting reverse mergers, in which a publicly traded shell corporation is purchased, according to data compiled by NYSE Euronext. (NYX) Stocks that have been delisted from the Nasdaq Stock Market, NYSE Amex or New York Stock Exchange have been omitted.

The Securities and Exchange Commission cautioned investors on June 9 about buying stakes in Chinese-based companies when they gain listings through reverse mergers, avoiding the regulatory and investor scrutiny of initial public offerings.
