ATV Enterprises is being sued by a Dongguan company that alleges it owes 15 million yuan (HK$17 million) in payments stemming from a joint venture agreement. In a writ filed in the High Court this week, Dongguan City Tangxia Bao Guang Resort and Entertainment Company Limited makes the claim against ATV and ATV Education Services Company Limited. The mainland firm says it is filing the lawsuit to recoup a 'guaranteed minimum dividend' that ATV Education was to have paid in 2002 and 2003 under the pair's joint venture pact. ATV Enterprises is responsible for ensuring that the payments under the pact are honoured, the Dongguan writ claims. Details of the joint venture were not provided.
