If you' ve built your own PC at any point over the past 15 years, chances are you' ve either considered or used a cooling product made by Zalman. The South Korean company has done a lot to progress the field of keeping our computer components cool while also keeping noise levels to an absolute minimum. However, they won' t be doing that anymore because Zalman has gone bankrupt.

The reason for its bankruptcy isn' t anything to do with its own products or performance, in fact this news may even come as a shock to Zalman employees. The reason the company has collapsed is due to the actions of its parent company Moneual, and more specifically its CEO and vice presidents.

Moneual CEO Harold Park, and vice presidents Scott Park and Won Duck-yeok, have apparently spent the last five years producing fraudulent documentation relating to the sales performance of Zalman. These documents inflated sales figures and export data for Zalman' s products. The reason? Bank loans.
By increasing sales and exports Park and his associates were able to secure bank loans totaling $2.98 billion. Someone has finally realized what has been going on, though, triggering Zalman' s shares to be suspended on the stock market and the company filing for bankruptcy protection. The questions now turn to how this practice was allowed to continue unnoticed for so long and how the banks will go about getting their near $3 billion back?

It seems unlikely Zalman will make it through what is sure to be a long process filled with lawsuits and prosecutions. However, the company does hold a number of patents relating to cooling and fan noise reduction technology. They will be worth something, and it seems likely a patent sale will happen eventually. Zalman' s competitors, including companies such as Cooler Master and Thermaltake will surely take an interest when that happens.

稍微有點資格的DIYer都應該知道韓國思民(Zalman),一個相當有名的散熱器品牌,但是現在,它要破產了。
公司倒閉時常有的事兒,但悲哀的是,思民並不是因為自己的產品或管理出現了問題,而是被母公司Moneual給折騰死的。
一位曾在Moneual工作的員工曝光了驚人的黑幕。原來在過去的5年時間裡,Moneual CEO Harold Park (Hong-seok)和兩位副總裁Scott Park (Min-seok)、Won Duck-yeok串通合謀,偽造思民產品的出口數據,先後從銀行騙取了3.2萬億韓元的貸款,約合人民幣180億元,絕大部分都沒有正當使用。
比如說,Scott Park就花了240億韓元來打通Moneual和中國財團的關係,買了一座中國工廠,還花了120億韓元在韓國江南區、濟州島購買私人財產,此外還有賭博和個人投資。
造假文件顯示,思民出口到美國的不是成品而只是零件,“因為成品更大、更貴”,這就誇大了思民的收入,從而騙取更多貸款,美國在海外產品進口支付方面的漏洞也助長了這個騙局。
有媒體認為,這是一次韓國版的安然事件。
現在,作為子公司的思民(Zalman Tech Co. Ltd)已經停止了股票交易,並向首爾中央地方法院申請了破產保護。
這個大騙局不僅榨乾了思民,也讓韓國的多家銀行損失慘重,因為Moneual公司已經無力償還貸款。當然了,股東們也會血本無歸。
目前,涉案的Moneual CEO和兩位副總裁已經被抓捕歸案,另外還有13名中層管理人員同樣會被起訴。
那麼,思民的產品何去何從?目前官方還沒有具體的說法(暫時顧不上了),各地分公司、代理商、經銷商可能會有不同的舉措,比如日本代理商ASK就表示會繼續提供服務支持。
現在只能期望能有其他公司站出來收購思民,不然就只能等著徹底爛掉了。

唔怪得近年唔見佢有新野出
