Till stocks do us part


A recent divorce between Yan Jianbing, a board member of the Shenzhen-listed Shenzhen Ysstech Info-Tech Co, and his wife has resulted in a plunge in the company’s share prices.

Yan’s divorce is a typical example of how the divorces of major shareholders from domestic listed companies are affecting the stock markets: Property split is changing the company’s ownership structure, bad reputation is causing the company’s shares to plunge in price and speculation is soaring over whether the divorcees are genuine or whether they are deceitfully separating in order to facilitate stock selling.
