It has been nearly two years after my last article at this blog. Sometimes, I really miss to write and to express on many things related with publicly listed companies. But, I have to comply with the agreement I have signed before I left my previous job with Bisnis Indonesia.
Writing articles on companies, in both positively and negatively tones, has so far enriched me how to learn making an interesting stories. It is not just about following the basic concept of journalistic such as 5W and 1H, but also sharpening my analysis skills to put all missing parts of the entire event of corporate actions into an intact stories.
Based on my experiences, some publicly listed companies sometimes filed incomplete disclosure to Indonesia Stock Exchange's website. They like using special purpose vehicles such as incorporated in British Virgin Islands or Cayman Islands in doing transactions. Sometimes they don't disclose the takeover price or they use the same persons to do several deals and just change their first or second names. It is really funny. As long as you are detail, you might see the big picture of the deals.
