Admin. Proc. File No. 3-16675
On July 6, 2015, the Commission instituted and simultaneously settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings (the “Order”) against Wisteria Global, Inc. (“Wisteria”) and Hiroshi Fujigami (collectively, the “Respondents”). In the Order, the Commission found that, from 2011 to 2013, Fujigami, through his wholly-owned and controlled business Wisteria, solicited investments of about $30.8 million in Luca To-Kalon and Luca Oil from more than 400 Japanese investors, who invested in pooled investment groups. Wisteria was paid a total of approximately $3.6 million in commissions in connection with Fujigami’s solicitation. The Respondents retained about $1.8 million of the commissions. The Respondents were not registered with the Commission in any capacity. The Commission ordered the Respondents to pay $1,793,783.00 in disgorgement, but payment of all but $1,138,985.00 was waived. See the Commission’s Order: Release No. 34-75362.
