Sino-Forest Stock Rises As Company Puts Up Proof Of Assets
The Globe and Mail:
Sino-Forest Corp. is trying a new strategy to reverse the crisis of confidence in its financial statements, taking the extraordinary step of releasing bank statements and land agreements as proof that its assets are legitimate. The move worked, at least for a time. The release of the documents, along with the announcement that the company would hold a tour of its Chinese tree plantations for analysts next month, sent the shares up more than 60 per cent in early trading. They eventually drifted lower again, but closed at $6.16, up 17.8 per cent from Friday's close.
