Subsequently, MQ Technology Bhd had announced series of casino related announcements and press releases, as well as unusual activities including the share sales of substantial shareholders at below Right Issue (RI) subscription price less than a month after RI completion followed by sudden resignation of an Executive Director hours before Bursa announcement of press statement ratification on potential miss information of public statement. Securities Commission has issued warning statement pertaining to such incident.
Mr Edwin together with few other new directors were supposed to lead the casino story. According to Bursa Malaysia disclosure, Mr. Edwin Silvester Das had a proliferated banking career for more than 25 years, having a distinctive edge of being exposed to banks in markets located locally and abroad. Presently, Edwin Silvester Das is the Managing Director of AL TAYSEER ADVISORY SERVICES, a consulting company with offices in Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, engaged in advisory services in the field of banking, risk management, restructuring and international fund management.
The departure of almost all new directors which were appointed and presented the company casino related business and the purchase of a Melacca land with not much progress today has raised authorities and investors eye brows. What is next for MQ Technology Bhd would be interesting, as despite the land and casino spending, the main business is still focus on Microlead Precision Technology Sdn Bhd. According to Bursa and SSM record, Microlead is still under existing management control and having main customers departing from Malaysia business scene, what happended to all the money raised and paid for Microlead? What happended to the Melacca project and casino business? Maybe investors can ask Mr Edwin for his professional consultation on who shall gives the answers if not himself.
