The investment house has been selling its once largest shareholder stake in PMP over the past three months from over 10 per cent to less than five. According to reports, Peter Hall, chairman H-HI, indicated PMP’s performance had a major impact on the company’s poor investment returns. “It’s pretty hard to avoid an earning surprise when management itself is unsure of the problem,” he said.

The shares are currently at $1.51.
