2016/01/12 update: 【股東擬賣《100毛》】林日曦:我傾家蕩產買番先!

//林日曦同拍檔姚家豪(阿Bu)陸家俊(陳強)各持3股,對於有傳股東擬賣《100毛》,林日曦話:「我冇聽聞過,傳聞傳乜都得,同吳亮星嘅『老朋友』有乜分別先?」
「我唔會賣,10%就算賣咗都絕對冇影響。如果有人賣,喂,我買番先喇唔該,我傾家盪產買番先。」
有人擔心10%股份落入紅色資本之手,林日曦堅定地謂:「佢嗰10%就乜嘢都做唔到嘅,不過我個人有啲咩……即係要張枱好清潔嘅……我個人有啲整齊病(強迫症),10%都做唔到啲咩嘅。整齊病嚟講我會買番,傾家盪產買番,唔係受佢影響,我係唔想答呢啲問題,為咗以後唔想答,所以買番。」//

Here is an excerpt of a public FB comment I left at 林日曦’s page.

林老板,可以用錢(就算要傾家盪產” :) )買番就最好啦。但係對方咁多錢,你就算儲埋好多好多散紙都一定*唔會*掟死佢,因為對方唔等錢洗,一D都無須要賣。 :(

I don’t have access to your private shareholders’ agreement so I don’t know what this (see below) fully implies “the Group [One Media Group] exercises significant influence […] the Group has the power to participate in making the financial and operating policy decisions of this company”.

It does sound potentially “influential” (don’t have to be “bad”). You and your lawyers know more about the legal implications. Good luck.

我慢人幾年,最近先留意到 林日曦 (Facebook Lin Ri Xi) 呢個黑紙、100毛創辦人。而家追睇返一D佢嘅資料。順便同大家分享吓。 2015/05/31 SyMediaLab 鍾溥敏 Mandy Chung, 人物訪問 • 林日曦 黑面神林日曦 2013/08/10 Apple Daily, 火熱悶棍 林日曦 2015/02/02 SCMP, “100Most – a satirical weekly that’s a hit with Hong Kong’s Occupy generation

The friends decided they would only meet regularly if there was a joint project to work on together. That decision yielded Black Paper, an A5 size card filled on one side with their pithy political commentary and musings on life and art. The friends each shelled out HK$2,000 to print the first 2,000 copies, which went on sale on New Year’s Day, 2010. Priced at just HK$1, the cards sold out within two days. An additional print run of 20,000 copies was also quickly snapped up. By 2011, the monthly newsletter was being distributed at all 7-Elevens and sales rose to 100,000 copies. Success soon inspired the trio to dream of a bigger platform to air their views:100Most. They quit their day jobs and started the magazine with HK$1 million accumulated from Black Paper’s revenues. “We were fortunate to have a pool of money,” Chan Keung says.

黑紙、100毛 as shown in One Media Group Annual report 2014/15

Note: According to the MD&A section of One Media Group 2014/15 annual report under performance of other media investments section (presumably the smaller and less material investments) (emphasis added),

Blackpaper Limited is engaged in the publication of “BlackPaper”, “100 Most” and books as well as the provision of creative multimedia services and advertising campaigns. It recorded a satisfactory performance during the year.” Investment of HK$1,000,000 for a 10% effective equity interest. Quoting 2011/12 annual report, (emphasis added) “On 1st February 2012, the Group subscribed for 10% of the entire issued share capital as enlarged by the subscription of the shares in Blackpaper Limited at the investment cost of HK$1,000,000. Although the Group holds less than 20% of the equity shares of this company, the Group exercises significant influence by virtue of its contractual right to nominate and remove one director out of the four directors, all having equal voting rights, which form the board of directors of this company. In addition, the Group has the power to participate in making the financial and operating policy decisions of this company.” Questions: How “significant” are those influence? Can the 10% shares be bought back by Blackpaper Ltd. and at what terms and prices? I hope Blackpaper had a good advisor when the terms were signed in 2012 Feb. In hindsight, looks like Sir Hiew-king Tiong or, more likely, his team has made a nice investment considering the potential for long term success of Blackpaper Ltd.

2016/03/14 update: Facebook: 林日曦  很可惜,我們沒有金主, 因為,我們就是金主本人。  Full FB posting included here:  // 很可惜,我們沒有金主,
因為,我們就是金主本人。
2010年,我跟陳強、Bu Iu三個人,每人夾了2000元正港幣,創辦了一張雜誌《黑紙》。2011年,我們把《黑紙》從只有幾個售賣點,推展至全港7-Eleven近千個售賣點。2012年,萬華媒體CEO林先生在7-Eleven透過《黑紙》認識我們,並聯絡我們提出有意入股。我們剛好想要創辦一本「有厚度」的雜誌,於是開始考慮,但同時我們又怕公司會在將來被其他勢力入侵並進一步控制,最後我們決定只會出售其中絕不能影響公司決定的10%股份,以換來100萬作新雜誌的部份起動資金。2013年,《100毛》面世。
有人會粗淺地形容萬華為100毛的大水喉,我每次見到,都啼笑皆非,有冇性暗示先衰鬼?冇嘅話,你知道甚麼叫入股嗎?就是他佔了公司10%,以後公司每賺10元,都要分他1元;你想再從他袋中拿1元嗎?OK,那麼我們要先拿9元出來給公司……
所以說,除了那10%換回來的部份資金,這些年我們花在公司身上的錢,全都只是靠自己和同事努力賺回來,再一點一點儲下來的。(話說回來,就算那100萬,都不是天跌下來不勞而獲的)
就這樣儲下儲下,2015年,我們又搞了毛記電視。
公司的規模是越來越大了,由從前只有小毛五隻,擴展到今天足足有近60位毛毛,雖然比起其他巨型傳媒,我們還是渺小如一粒蟻,可每月支出也要幾百萬。值得高興的是,在這個人人做網媒都要蝕錢的年代,我們每月放血幾百萬之後,竟然依然可以維持到正數…
只以$6000創立出來,直到今天個個月幾百萬上落仲要賺到錢…
我為我們的公司而感到自豪。
香港,是時候改變了。
就是要變得,不一定要由有錢人來當大股東才可以做得起一間傳媒。
就是要變得,由一些不跟你玩傳統輩份的冇錢人做大股東,也可以做得出一間養得起自己的傳媒。
那不一定是我們,也可以是你們。
因為我們隨時都可以失敗。
正如你們隨時都可以成功一樣。
我們都不曾自大,因為我們隨時都會失敗。
近日有些友媒莫名地非常關心我們台慶的贊助費用,
說我們的品牌贊助費用比分獎典禮那時升了三倍,
有友媒仲將我哋畀Agency嘅Proposal成個放咗上佢哋個網當港聞,
對此我只有兩個感想:
第一,由3000人伊館場轉去8000人會展場,搞呢場Show要成幾百萬製作費(如果我有講錯請各同事立刻跳出嚟指正我),而且我哋做得都算幾好,收幾百萬贊助費好平常啫,我哋收得起。
第二,頂,睇嚟真係收唔起喇呢次。除咗收咗個平平地嘅優先訂購客,其他乜嘢Sponsor都Confirm唔到…所以話,點解即使我從來冇迫過我啲Sales同事追數,但我啲Sales同事都爆晒粗咁Q大壓力?…可能因為友媒兜個圈嚟畀壓力佢哋…公開串佢哋開唔到單…
蝕錢好閒,但為咗我Sales同事嘅精神健康著想,
我而家公開呼籲各大品牌贊助我哋511台慶:
Title Sponsor = $3,280,000
Co-sponsor 分為:
超勁Co-sponsor$1,680,000
好勁Co-sponsor$680,000
幾勁Co-sponsor$280,000
其他友媒可以質疑我們收得貴,但不可以質疑我們一直都在努力做事。如果有努力做事,而且是一直幹著自己喜歡的事,可以由$6000經營至今這個面貌,甚至他朝一日憑此成為真正的富豪金主,我們一點都不會覺得羞恥。只有一直在資本市場上自負盈虧,才可以繼續拒絕被其他傳媒富豪金主牽著鼻子走。順便發埋達,應該會好正𠻹。
我平時又唔炒樓又唔買六合彩嘅,要發達,唯有靠努力做起毛記㗎喇。
btw,講堅…
香港01咁多錢,會唔會考慮Title Sponsor我哋? //
