Lawmakers yesterday continued to rail against regulators’ lack of oversight in holding a number of companies liable for reparations of massive losses for more than 20,000 investors following the collapse of a tender offer for XPEC Entertainment Inc (樂陞科技).
New Power Party (NPP) Executive Chairman Huang Kuo-chang (黃國昌) targeted missteps by the Financial Supervisory Commission’s (FSC) Securities and Futures Bureau (SFB), and its subsequent conflicting explanations.
The tender offer plan stipulated that Bai Chi Gan Tou Digital Entertainment Co (百尺竿頭) must fulfill its payment obligations by Aug. 19 and complete the transfer of shares by Aug. 26.
