Show Notes

After the controversy around Grand Parade’s efforts to sell Burger King South Africa to a private equity fund, the Competition Commission became even more topical for investors. South Africa is a somewhat unique environment, with public interest considerations creating the risk of unpleasant outcomes in deals.


Internationally, antitrust legislation and regulatory policy can make a significant difference to investment returns. Some Big Tech companies are more at risk than others.


To help make sense of it all, Duncan Lishman joined us to discuss the world of competition regulation. As a competition economist, Duncan is highly skilled and experienced in this area.

Magic Markets #17: Trading the Scandals

Corporate governance failures. Frauds. Accounting misstatements. A “hole in the balance sheet” – unfortunately, these breakdowns in trust happen on the market. When they do, the repercussions are severe not just for shareholders in the company in question, but potentially for the market as a whole. Have you noticed that JSE corporates are doing fewer acquisitions in exchange for shares these days? Mr Price just bought Yuppiechef for over R400m in cold, hard cash. Before the Steinhoff era, entrepreneurs were more inclined to accept shares in listed companies in exchange for their businesses. Those days are gone. What impact do the likes of Greensill and Wirecard have on their respective industries? How can investors and traders spot scandals and take advantage of them? Tongaat Hulett. EOH. This episode is packed with commentary by hosts The Finance Ghost and Moe-Knows on the companies that previously dominated the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
