  1. Does anyone have any info on why PSH is omitting their dividend? The reason given regarding negative equity is just a timing issue regarding the restructuring, is it a technicality that they will breach some lending covenants if they pay out under current circumstances?


    • payment is delayed because the structuring of PSH was completed in late ’16. PSH has to wait for the nonlisted pruksa real estate to pay the dividend to the holdco before PSH can payout divvy’s. People are expecting that PSH will be a div in mid ’17
