Hanmi Pharmaceutical Company has come under fire for late announcements regarding its stock price, resulting in profit taking by investors short selling the company's shares. Financial authorities are investigating the case.

On September 29, Hamni Pharmaceutical Company announced an export deal amounting to roughly 900 million U.S. dollars. As soon as the stock market opened the next day, Hamni Pharmaceutical's shares surged five percent. But despite the price increase, many investors rushed to make bets that Hamni's shares would drop in price. Some 50,000 short selling transactions were made during the course of just 28 minutes, accounting for 50 percent of all short sellings recorded that day.

[Soundbite] Shin Kwang-seon(Korea Exchange) : "The amount of short selling deals made by investors who knew that the stock prices would fall were about 17 times the average monthly amount of around 3.3 million dollars."

Shortly after a string of short sellings, Hanmi Pharmaceutical dropped a bombshell with an announcement that one of its export deals had been scrapped. The company's shares tumbled, while profits from short sellings soared to 20 percent. The day before these counterintuitive transactions took place, investors discussed the matter in a group chat on a messenger app.

[Soundbite] Hanmi Pharmaceutical Investor(Voice modified) : "A person I know told me that Hamni was going to drop a bombshell. He said all the investors were aware of this."

Financial authorities are analyzing the personal information of investors who sold Hanmi Pharmaceutical's shares and those who were involved in short sellings.
