Take no prisoners Directors at Hong Kong-listed firm Zhu Kuan Development were taking no chances at their AGM yesterday. The firm has become embroiled in a row involving creditor banks owed $4.49 billion by its parent, the Zhuhai government-owned Zhu Kuan Group. Was the presence of security guards a barometer for the acrimony? Surely they needn't have bothered. The whole thing was being videotaped. For posterity, we presume. disappearing act Now you see it, now you don't. Laisee refers to Ford's prospectus for its $1 billion bond offer, which landed on bankers' desks the other morning and was promptly taken back in the afternoon. Investors were disappointed, having expected to receive the prospectus on Wednesday afternoon, but nothing arrived. It eventually made its way to them yesterday morning.

On Monday, the ratings agency announced to much fanfare that it was reviewing Hong Kong's foreign currency debt and bank deposit ratings. 'The original press release was issued on September 22,' a spokeswoman for Moody's said. 'We accidentally left out three banks and that is why we issued the correction.' Those left out included the Hong Kong branch of Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi and Mitsubishi Securities (HK), and mighty HSBC's Singapore branch. Well, at least they didn't leave out Big Red in Hong Kong.
