Hong Kong Television Network has not reached any agreement with the beleaguered free-to-air broadcaster ATV on buying its shares, the company said on Wednesday morning, in another twist to events.

 

In an announcement made on the stock market's website, HKTV admitted its chairman Ricky Wong Wai-kay did meet with ATV major investor Wong Ching once on March 26.

 

It said however: "No agreement or agreement in principle has been reached by Mr Ricky Wong, whether or not on behalf of the company with anyone with regard to the possible transaction.

 

"The company has not entered into any discussions with the joint and several managers of ATV appointed by the High Court of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region," the statement from HKTV added.

 

The denial comes just hours after an announcement was made during ATV's Chinese-language newscast that de facto boss Wong Ching had agreed to sell his controlling stake to HKTV's maverick chief, Ricky Wong. According to the report, Wong Ching and Wong Ben-koon, who holds a total 52.4 per cent stake on paper, had accepted Ricky Wong's offer for the stake.

 

ATV's announcement stunned industry insiders, particularly because Ricky Wong had repeatedly and categorically denied he would do any such deal with the station he once ran for 12 days.

 

They described it as a slap in the face for Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, who was evasive when asked about ATV on Tuesday morning. Leung would only say ATV's licence was being handled according to established procedures and the law. The Executive Council was due to hold a special meeting on ATV on Wednesday, arranged before Tuesday's shock announcement.

 

Accountants from Deloitte were earlier appointed by the court as ATV managers to sell a 10.75 per cent stake from major shareholder Wong Ben-koon, a relative of mainland investor Wong Ching. 

 

HKTV said in the notice that the March 26 meeting was to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Sean Lau accepted the interview and said: "In the movie, I act as a man with mental health problem and have no idea how they see me as romantic person. (Your wife praised you are romantic?) No, romance is a kind of feeling. We can feel it and need not say anything. (You are really romantic.) Something is wrong if she said that to me."

Fiona Sit laughed and said: "I hated film director, David Lee (李光耀) telling people that both of them were classmates." She said: "He is much older than me in terms of appearance and age."

Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) attended a dinner function as performer guest and will be singing two songs: "The client requested me to sing one of my old songs (6 years ago) and I am afraid I will forget the lyrics as did not sing for a long time. Initially, I have practised to sing others' songs as want to try new stuff. I love Faye Wong (王菲) and Sandy Lam (林憶蓮). Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and I will be going to New Zealand and perform singing. We will stay there for 5 days. I am thinking of the local fish maw and sea cucumber. (You know how to cook?) Yes, Steven Ma (馬浚偉) taught me. Recently, I have been cooking and will seek advice from my friends." When asked if his rumoured boyfriend, Philip Ng (伍允龍) tasted her cooking before, Linda said: "Nobody tries it before except my fans during the fans gathering. I boil for them as their reward. (Boyfriend gets jealous?) Haha! I only have friends now."

Asked if she learned cooking in order to prepare being the wife, Linda denied and said: "I want to be a good daughter as my mother said nobody cooked a nice meal for her after cooking for many years. I train myself to be a filial daughter slowly. My mother is returning in June and I can cook 6 dishes with 1 soup such as winter melon soup, spare ribs and others. (Boyfriend cooks for you often?) I only have friends now."
