Recent News & Updates
Hollysys Finds Its Future In Its Past, But Investability Is A Real Question
Hollysys has brought back its founding CEO and announced that it is no longer considering go-private offers. Since my last article, the company has changed auditors, changed CEO, and reported FQ4'21 earnings almost eight months after quarter's end, with minimal explanation for any of it. Hollysys has a credible opportunity in process automation within China, and perhaps recovery potential in the rail business, but communication with investors has been very poor. Hollysys may well be exceptionally cheap here, but I consider it effectively uninvestable given poor/inconsistent communication and no recent information on strategy/strategic priorities.
