PEWC Scandal

2011 - 12 - 12

PEWC has been founded for over half a century, it belonged to the first phase to build conventional industry, and then started to diversify and become more international.

走過半個世紀的「太平洋電線電纜公司」,從以前屬於創建傳統產業基礎的第一階段,到開啟多角化與國際化的第二階段。太電為台灣地區最大的電線電纜製造廠之一,不但在泰國、新加坡、澳洲、大陸地區有廠房,多角化的發展,更使太電成為一個跨足線纜、光電、通訊、衛星電視、電子資訊及高速鐵路等事業的企業集團。

1994年太電公司當時之副總經理及財務長胡洪九,利用公司資金在香港、英屬維京群島等地設立公司,以太電公司為擔保透過海外公司發行公司債,外加使用轉投資、不當交易等方式將資金轉入這些海外公司,再將這些資金匯到146家海外公司洗錢。

胡洪九還利用海外交叉持股,用太電公司在香港的資金購買不動產,將其登記再另一家海外公司名下,其擅自處分太電公司資產並不當挪用,利用假定存單掩飾資金缺口,事後企圖解散海外公司以防減掉追查,前前後後共掏空太電公司約171億元,使公司陷入財務危機,被媒體形容為世紀經濟犯罪掏空案。

太電公司於民國54年即已上市,長久以來被視為成長性佳的績優股,股東人數眾多,受到掏空案影響,導致太電下市,投資人受害人數創下新紀錄,國安基金也慘賠17億,等於是全民埋單!
