A dead capital increase case led to 11 regulatory penalties, which may not have been thought of when the relevant parties discussed cooperation.
On May 16, 2017, Yijian shares, which had just been renamed, issued a notice of suspension of major issues, claiming that it had received a notice from the major shareholders to introduce strategic investors, which might involve a change in control. And in this supervision ticket, revealed more details of the negotiation.
On April 14 of that year, Tang Zhaocheng, Vice Minister of Finance Department of Yunnan World Expo tourism Holding Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Expo tourism group) and Hu Gang, the then independent director of Yijian shares, had a dinner together. They talked about the possibility of the World Expo Tourism Group to cooperate with Jiutian holding, the major shareholder of Yijian shares, in terms of equity. Subsequently, on April 24, Leng Tianqing, Hu Gang, the then general manager of Jiutian holding, and Ge Baorong, the then general manager of the World Expo tourism group, held a meeting to discuss the issue of increasing the capital and equity of the group.

During this period, Li Lianfeng went to Hus office due to business relations, and saw documents related to capital increase and share expansion on his desk, thus obtaining insider information illegally. Similarly, Li Lianfeng shared this good news to her circle of friends..
According to the survey, Li Lianfeng and Zhang Yi are familiar, and they meet more often. After Li Lianfeng illegally obtained inside information, he told Zhang Yi the relevant information.

In September this year, China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) solicited opinions from the market on the revision of the provisions on the establishment of a registration and management system for insiders of listed companies. From the perspective of objectives, the revision of the system is to promote the establishment and improvement of insider information management system of listed companies, enhance the awareness of prevention and control of insider trading of listed companies and related parties, and provide institutional guarantee for preventing and cracking down on insider trading. It is not difficult to find that since this year, the SFC and the local securities regulatory bureaus have seized a number of insider trading cases, and the number of insider trading cases shows a downward trend. However, there are still many unfair transactions using mergers and acquisitions and large fluctuations in performance. Using technical means to crack down on insider trading is still the focus of supervision. Under the heavy hammer of supervision, insider trading will eventually have no escape.
