Asian Citrus non-exec squeezes the funds to buy shares

Date: Tuesday 28 Feb 2012

LONDON (ShareCast) - A non-Executive Director of Asian Citrus, an AIM-100 Chinese orange grower, has bought 256,000 shares for himself and his wife.

Peregrine Moncreiffe and his wife, Miranda Moncreiffe, purchased the shares at an average price of 37.95p each for a total of £97,152.

Winterthur Pension Management, in which Moncreiffe has an interest, also purchased 268,560 at 37.55p for a total of £100,844.

Following the transactions, Moncreiffe, Mrs Moncreiffe and Winterthur now hold 1,078,000 shares, 128,000 shares and 268,560 shares, respectively.

The purchase came just a week after the firm hit back at what it claims is an inaccurate article in a Hong Kong magazine renowned for its investigations into alleged fraudulent activities by listed Chinese companies.

Hong Kong-based Next magazine has cast doubts on the accuracy of Asian Citrus's claims viz land ownership, fruit production and the value of its plantations, prompting a detailed rebuttal from the AIM-listed orchard owner.

The farming group maintained that it "has very efficient and comprehensive internal control systems to measure and audit its plantations' production and corresponding revenue," and thus stands by the figures shown in its company reports.

The share price fell 1.65% to 37.25p on the day of the purchase, having lost 50% over the last year.
