  • Accuse senior management of malpractices and call for their removal 

  • Write to major shareholder urging action but disappointed over delay

  • Japanese have invested $ 18 m in various ACAP projects; want money returned with interest and legal fees

  • ACAP facing legal and management battle; reports Rs. 669 m loss for FY20 enlarging retained losses to Rs. 1.9 b


Longstanding Japanese shareholders of Asia Capital PLC (ACAP) are demanding their money amounting to $ 18 million back plus interest and legal fees alleging no return on investment due to serious malpractices by senior management.

The Japanese investors own nearly 15% stake in ACAP with first investment made way back in 2012. There are two Japanese Directors on the Board as well. 

The apparent disappointment and extreme and unprecedented action of demanding money back is because ACAP hasn’t provided any return on their investments and Japanese have alleged malpractices and irregularities by the senior management of the company.

They had clarified that they are not against the company but specifically over the loss of faith and confidence on the senior management which includes Director/CEO Stefan Abeyesinhe and two Chief Operating Officers Reyhan Morris and Sandun Hettige.

The Japanese investors’ frustration is also over the failure by ACAP major shareholder owning 72% QI Group Chairman Vijay Eswaran who is based in Malaysia, to respond to issues raised in writing as well as face to face discussions last year and especially delay in taking action against the senior management. The demand to return $ 18 million plus interest and legal fees is as last resort redress Japanese investors have said. 

Japanese investors had also warned ACAP that if no action taken, they will be compelled to take the dispute to Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Japanese Embassy in Sri Lanka, the Colombo Stock Exchange, and the Securities and Exchange Commission in both Sri Lanka and Japan. Additionally legal action has been indicated as well. 

ACAP has 6,050 public shareholders with a public float of 18.6% as at 31 March. 

Daily FT learns lawyers representing the interest of Japanese investors had discussions recently on host of issues raised as well as allegations of unethical practices on the part of ACAP senior management. The efforts have thus far failed to resolve the disputes. 

The once ground breaking and well respected investment bank ACAP has of late diversified into leisure and other sectors and has an usually high subsidiaries and associates numbering over 20. 

Japanese demand for capital and interest and legal fees are over the investments made including Shinagawa Beach Hotel Balapitiya, Taprobana Hotel Wadduwa, Kosgoda Beach Hotel, Galle Beach CC Trust and Asia Leisure Holdings.

ACAP has been making losses since FY12 except a usually high Rs. 208 million profit attributable to ordinary shareholders in FY18 and Rs. 35 million in FY19. 

As per interim results released early this month, the loss in FY20 was a staggering Rs. 669 million.  Liabilities mainly bank overdraft and short to medium term debt had increased by Rs. 700 million in FY20. Investments business has suffered a Rs. 465 million loss as against a profit of Rs. 241 million in FY19 whilst leisure business loss however has been reduced to Rs. 197 million from Rs. 261 million loss in FY19. 

Retained losses as at 31 March was Rs. 1.9 billion up from Rs. 1.1 billion a year ago. Group revenue in FY20 was down 63% to Rs. 406 million. 

In the interim results ACAP said the COVID-19 outbreak since early 2020 has brought about additional uncertainties in the Group’s operating environment and has impacted the Group operations. “The Board together with the management is committed to withstand the negative effects and short term uncertainty this pandemic has created and confident that the company is in the possession of required resources and capabilities to achieve this,” ACAP stated in the interim results.

Group assets have been stated at Rs. 4.8 billion as at 31 March. Of the assets Rs. 4 billion are in the leisure sector. 

In its last published Annual Report (FY19), the company said in the leisure sector, it successfully increased presence following the launch of the 57-room Le Grand, Galle under the Asia Leisure banner in July 2018. “Over the years we have continued to consolidate our presence in this space, by taking measured steps to expand our footprint along the southern coastal belt,” the company added.

Including the Le Grand, ACAP Group portfolio by end of FY19 consisted of six hotel properties thereby growing market share in small luxury hotel space.

In the Maldives a 70-room Miriandhoo was completed on schedule as well in November 2018 with a management contract with the internationally acclaimed Westin Group.

Three projects remained ongoing as at 31 March 2019 the 96-room hotel project in Galle, the mixed development project on Marine Drive and the 447 Luna Tower residential condominium property and FY19 Annual Report stated they were scheduled to be completed over the next 12-18 months.

Sumanadeera had already previously worked for Asia Capital PLC prior to his retirement from the Sri Lanka’s pioneering investment banking group in 2009 before the current senior management was appointed.

“The investors of this company has entrusted their confidence in me and Frontier Capital team’s financial and legal guidance to make sure Asia Capital will be positioned back to the place it had during the golden days of Investment Banking in Sri Lanka, when Asia Capital was the House that raised the Financial Whiz-Kids of this country” Nishan Sumanadeera assured.

He may be good, but question is if the current management is good and above board then why should they bring in someone from 10 years ago? Should we release our holdings?

Asia Capital to broad base shareholding to match minimum public float
November, 26, 2020

Leading and pioneering investment bank in Sri Lanka Asia Capital PLC (ACAP) will soon broad base the shareholding to be in compliance with public floating requirements stipulated by the Listing Rues of Colombo Stock Exchange.

“We will soon look at opportunities of broad basing our public float to match with Colombo Stock Exchange’s Rules on minimum public holding” ACAP Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Stefan Abeyesinhe said.

He further said that soon after Nishan Sumanadeera was appointed as legal and financial consultant in September this year, the company has undergone initial phase of restructuring and had almost sorted all the business-related concerns with Japanese investors.

“We are on the process of relooking and focusing at Asia Capital’s astute investors and our best assets in order to financially re-engineer them to be the key revenue generating assets to sustain the balance sheet with the guidance of our consultant team appointed by our key shareholders” Abeyesinhe assured highlighting on the latest initiatives by ACAP group.

Current market capitalization of ACAP is valued at nearly Rs. 1 billion represented by 131,329,995 ordinary voting shares according to latest financials as at 30th September 2020.

Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) listing rules currently outline that Listed Entity whose shares are listed on the CSE shall maintain a Minimum Public Holding Requirement on a continuous basis, and thus according to the rules Asia Capital must maintain a minimum of 20% minimum public holding of shares as per the float adjusted market capitalization.

Abeyesinhe noted that ACAP has already informed Colombo Stock Exchange that the company is in the process of addressing the said Rule during the permitted period of compliance. As at 30th October 2020 Asia Capital’s existing Float Adjusted Market Capitalization stands at Rs. 154,136,943.85 with a Public Holding Percentage 18.93 % with 6,036 public shareholders.

Internal Investigations lead to resignation of two Jt. COOs from Asia Capital PLC
August, 30, 2021


Asia Capital accepts resignation of Reyhan Morris, Sandun Hettige subject to an Independent Audit

Two Joint Chief Operating Officers Reyhan Morris & Sandun Hettige at Sri Lanka’s pioneering investment bank Asia Capital PLC has submitted resignations despite an upcoming internal independent audit, two resignation letters accepted by the company reveals.

Accordingly, in the letters dated 21st July and 11th August 2021 respectively, addressed to Reyhan Morris and Sandun Hettige from Asia Capital PLC, signed by Director Raju Radha note that both their resignations from the position as Joint Chief Operating Officers at Asia Capital PLC, Chief Executive Officer at Asia Leisure Holdings held by Morris and Chief Investment Officer position held by Hettige has accepted subject to an independent audit to be carried out with regard to affairs of the company during their serving period.

The two letters further note that as requested by the both individuals’ letters for good standing shall be issued subject to audit findings.

In late August 2020 it was reported in the media that longstanding Japanese shareholders of Asia Capital PLC (ACAP) were demanding their money amounting to US $ 18 million back plus interest and legal fees alleging no return on investment due to serious malpractices by senior management.

That time in a leaked letter it was revealed that the apparent disappointment and extreme and unprecedented action of demanding money back is because ACAP hasn’t provided any return on their investments and Japanese have alleged malpractices and irregularities by the senior management of the company. That time Japanese investors held nearly 15% stake in ACAP with the first investment made way back in 2012 and there were two Japanese Directors on the Board. In the leaked letter Japanese that time had further clarified that they are not against the company but specifically over the loss of faith and confidence in the senior management which includes then Director/CEO Stefan Abeyesinhe and two Chief Operating Officers Reyhan Morris and Sandun Hettige.

Meanwhile Asia Capital official sources on the grounds of anonymity, highlighted that Reyhan Morris has tendered resignation dated 9th July to be effective from 27th August 2021 and Sandun Hettige has tendered the resignation dated 5th August to be effective from 30th September 2021. The two letters further note that Morris and Hettige held further directorships in 13, 15 companies respectively in Asia Capital group.

About two weeks ago, reports revealed another Director at Asia Capital Toshiaki Tanaka resigned from Asia Capital PLC upon inquiry on his vested deals with Japanese . Reports revealed that upon a year in restructuring the Japanese – Malaysian investments Asia Capital PLC on Tuesday the 18th August 2021 disclosed to Colombo Stock Exchange that Toshiaki Tanaka had resigned from the board with effect from the same day. Media reports highlight that Toshiaki Tanaka has sent his resignation letter when an audit inquiry was called by the entire board of directors at Asia Capital PLC about Tanaka’s dealings with the other Japanese investors who had pumped in money to Asia Capital but complicated the owning structure for leisure investments it had made that had vested grips with the Japanese.

Accordingly, reports revealed a leaked letter sent to Tanaka that highlights Asia Capital had demanded over Rs. 77 million from Tanaka for causing failure in continuation of other Japanese investors’ relationship, since now a complete breakdown of relationship has occurred from the side of Japanese investors.
