Mega Financial Holding, an investment house in Taiwan, rejected a report that it’s facing massive losses on subprime mortgage investments, reports Agence France-Presse. The company said it plans would lose NT$250 million ($7.58 million) in a worst possible outcome. “The worst-case scenario for us is that we may write off a loss of around three to five percent of our NT$5 billion ($151.6 million) in [collateralized loan obligation] holdings,” said Simon Dzeng, spokesman. Dzeng added that there was no reason to believe that Mega would have to write-off all NT$5 billion in CDOs. The Commercial Times reported that the company could face such a loss from its sub-prime exposure.
