@ your comment on PROEN: Comment: hahaha really? I don’t think a -35mn thb investment loss is going to cause much noise:
they are not a very large company – so i guess a loss of a few tens of million baht (at the current bitkub price app. -46 mn thb) will be really painful for them.
Yes if that’s the case, the company appears to be saying that there is a buyback clause with bitkub. Bitkub appears to be more at risk with this agreement to have to stump up the cash to proen by next year.
And sure, if they have to write this down to zero, they’ll lose 2q-4q’s of earnings, from which the company moves on. If the investors don’t like it, sell the shares and move on.
well, if they have a buyback clause – good for them…
