SEC Suspends Trading of 17 Companies in a Broad Effort to Combat Microcap Stock Fraud
The Securities and Exchange Commission ordered the temporary suspension, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act), of trading in the securities of 17 issuers quoted on the OTC Markets electronic quotations service because of questions regarding the adequacy and accuracy of information about the companies, including their assets, business operations, current financial condition and/or issuances of shares in company stock.
The names of these companies and the ticker symbols under which they have traded are as follows:
The trading suspensions will last for ten business days. The trading suspensions commenced at 9:30 a.m. EDT on June 7, 2011, and will terminate at 11:59 pm EDT on June 20, 2011.
The Commission ordered the trading suspensions because of questions regarding the adequacy and accuracy of information about the companies, including their assets, business operations, current financial condition, and/or issuances of shares in company stock.
The Commission cautions broker-dealers, shareholders, and prospective purchasers that they should carefully consider the foregoing information along with all other currently available information and any information subsequently issued by the companies.
Further, brokers and dealers should be alert to the fact that, pursuant to Rule 15c2-11 under the Exchange Act, at the termination of the trading suspensions, no quotation may be entered unless and until they have strictly complied with all of the provisions of the rule. If any broker or dealer has any questions as to whether or not he has complied with the rule, he should not enter any quotation but immediately contact the staff in the Division of Trading and Markets, Office of Interpretation and Guidance, at (202) 551-5777. If any broker or dealer is uncertain as to what is required by Rule 15c2-11, he should refrain from entering quotations relating to the above-named securities until such time as he has familiarized himself with the rule and is certain that all of its provisions have been met. If any broker or dealer enters any quotation which is in violation of the rule, the Commission will consider the need for prompt enforcement action.
If any broker, dealer or other person has any information which may relate to this matter, they should immediately contact any of the following individuals:

Agencies Extend Comment Period on Risk Retention Proposed Rulemaking
Six federal agencies have approved and will submit a Federal Register notice that extends the comment period on the proposed rules to implement the credit risk retention requirements of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The comment period was extended to Aug. 1, 2011, to allow interested persons more time to analyze the issues and prepare their comments. Originally, comments were due by June 10, 2011.
The proposed rule generally would require sponsors of asset-backed securities to retain at least 5 percent of the credit risk of the assets underlying the securities and would not permit sponsors to transfer or hedge that credit risk. The proposal was issued by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. (Press Rel. 2011-121)
In the Matter of David L. Olson
On June 6, 2011, an Administrative Law Judge issued an Order Making Findings and Imposing Sanctions by Default against David L. Olson (Olson) in David L. Olson, Admin. Proc. No. 3-14349. The Order Instituting Proceedings (OIP) alleged that Olson was a registered representative associated with World Group Securities, Inc., a broker-dealer registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and president of A&O Investments, LLC (A&O), a Florida limited liability company. The OIP alleged that Olson and his business partner raised approximately $14.8 million from at least 100 investors, primarily in Florida and Ohio, through the offer and sale of unregistered securities in the form of promissory notes issued by A&O and several other related entities. According to the complaint, Olson knowingly made material misrepresentations and omitted to state material facts about the use of investor funds, the risks of the investments, and the safety of investor funds. Olson was permanently enjoined from violating Sections 5 and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act), and Exchange Act Rule 10b-5 in SEC v. Allen, No. 1:10-cv-1143 (N.D. Ohio 2010). The court found Olson jointly and severally liable with A&O and ordered disgorgement of $10,339,849.95, plus prejudgment interest of $736,631.51, for a total of $11,076,481.46. Olson was ordered to pay a civil penalty of $130,000.
The administrative law judge found the allegations in the OIP to be true and ordered David L. Olson barred from association with a broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, or transfer agent, and from participating in an offering of penny stock.

Securities and Exchange Commission Orders Hearing on Registration Suspension or Revocation Against Eight Public Companies for Failure to Make Required Periodic Filings
On June 6, 2011, the Commission instituted public administrative proceedings to determine whether to revoke or suspend for a period not exceeding twelve months the registrations of each class of the securities of eight companies for failure to make required periodic filings with the Commission:
In this Order, the Division of Enforcement (Division) alleges that the eight issuers are delinquent in their required periodic filings with the Commission.
In this proceeding, instituted pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12(j), a hearing will be scheduled before an Administrative Law Judge. At the hearing, the Administrative Law Judge will hear evidence from the Division and the Respondents to determine whether the allegations of the Division contained in the Order, which the Division alleges constitute failures to comply with Exchange Act Section 13(a) and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13 thereunder, are true. The Administrative Law Judge in the proceeding will then determine whether the registrations pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12 of each class of the securities of these Respondents should be revoked or suspended for a period not exceeding twelve months. The Commission ordered that the Administrative Law Judge in this proceeding issue an initial decision not later than 120 days from the date of service of the order instituting proceedings. (Rel. 34-64610; File No. 3-14411)

(Rel. 34-64611; File No. 3-14412)
In the Matter of Mark C. Schwartzhoff
On June 7, 2011, the Commission issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Rule 102(e) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions against Mark C. Schwartzhoff (Order), who was the former Vice President of Finance at Dutchmen Manufacturing, Inc., a subsidiary of Thor Industries, Inc. The Order finds that on May 23, 2011, a final judgment was entered against Schwartzhoff in a civil action entitled Securities and Exchange Commission v. Thor Industries Inc., et al., Civil Action Number 1:11-cv-00889 (RMC), in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The final judgment permanently enjoins Schwartzhoff from future violations of Sections 10(b) and 13(b)(5) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Exchange Act Rules 10b-5, 13b2-1, and 13b2-2 thereunder, and aiding and abetting violations of Exchange Act Sections 13(a), 13(b)(2)(A), and 13(b)(2)(B) and Exchange Act Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, and 13a-13 thereunder. The final judgment also prohibits Schwartzhoff from serving as an officer or director of any issuer that has a class of securities registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act or that is required to file reports pursuant to Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act, and orders him to pay disgorgement of $394,830, which shall be deemed satisfied by the entry of a restitution order against Schwartzhoff in a parallel criminal case.
According to the Order, the Commission’s complaint alleges, among other things, that during the second quarter of fiscal 2003 through the second quarter of fiscal 2007, Schwartzhoff created and recorded fraudulent accounting entries and related documentation to hide inventory losses occurring at Dutchmen. The complaint alleges that, instead of properly recording increased cost of goods sold, Schwartzhoff hid inventory losses in various balance sheet accounts, including accounts receivable, accounts payable, and cash. These entries, the complaint alleges, resulted in overstating Dutchmen’s pretax income by approximately $26 million during fiscal 2004 to 2006 and into the second quarter of fiscal 2007. As a result, as alleged in the complaint, Thor’s annual and quarterly financial statements filed with the Commission during this period were false and misleading. In June 2007, Thor filed restated financial statements with the Commission for fiscal years 2004 to 2006 and the first quarter of fiscal 2007.
Based on the above, the Order suspends Schwartzhoff from appearing or practicing before the Commission as an accountant. Schwartzhoff consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order except that he admitted to the Commission’s jurisdiction over him and the subject matter of the proceeding, and the fact that the federal court entered the injunction against him. (Rel. 34-64613; AAE Rel. 3289; File No. 3-14413)
In the Matter of Louis W. Zehil, Esq.
On June 7, 2011, the Commission issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Rule 102(e) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions (Order) against Louis W. Zehil. The Order finds that Zehil, age 44, is and has been an attorney licensed to practice in the State of New York. On May 10, 2011, a final judgment was entered against Zehil, permanently enjoining him from future violations of Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act and Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and rule 10b-5 thereunder, in a civil action entitled Securities and Exchange Commission v. Louis W. Zehil, et al., Civil Action Number 07 Civ. 1439 (LAP), in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Based on the above, the Order suspended Zehil from appearing or practicing before the Commission as an attorney, effective immediately. Zehil consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order, except he admitted the entry of an injunction. (Rel. 34-64618; File No. 3-14414)
SEC Charges California Lawyer With Insider Trading
On June 3, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged Dean A. Goetz with insider trading in the securities of Advanced Medical Optics, Inc. (NYSE: EYE) in advance of the Jan. 12, 2009 announcement that Abbott Laboratories, Inc. would acquire Advanced Medical Optics in a tender offer. Goetz traded based on material, nonpublic information regarding the impending merger and acquisition involving Advanced Medical Optics that he misappropriated from his daughter, a lawyer who, at the time, worked for the law firm representing Advanced Medical Optics in the transaction. Goetz and his daughter shared a relationship of trust and confidence. Unbeknownst to his daughter, Goetz misappropriated confidential deal information from her while she worked on the transaction at her parents’ house over the holidays in December 2008. By trading on the material, nonpublic information he misappropriated, Goetz breached the duty of trust and confidence that he owed to his daughter.
The Commission’s complaint alleges that Goetz, a California resident and an attorney, knew that his daughter owed a duty of confidentiality to her employer and to her employer’s clients. Despite knowing that his daughter could not, and did not, share nonpublic information with him, Goetz misappropriated information about the impending merger and acquisition and used it for his own benefit. The complaint further alleges that on January 8, 2009 – shortly before the market was to close on the day the deal was originally scheduled to be announced – Mr. Goetz bought 900 shares of Advanced Medical Optics through an online brokerage account he had not accessed in almost a year. As a result of his trading, Goetz earned illegal profits of $11,418.
Without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations, Goetz agreed to settle the charges against him. The settlement is subject to approval by the court. Specifically, Goetz consented to the entry of a final judgment permanently enjoining him from future violations of Sections 10(b) and 14(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 10b-5 and 14e-3 thereunder and ordering him to pay full disgorgement of $11,418, plus prejudgment interest of $925.65, and a penalty of $11,418, for a total of $23,761.65. [SEC v. Dean A. Goetz, No. 11CV1220-IEG-NLS, SDCA] (LR-21990)
Court Freezes Assets Linked to Suspicious Securities Purchases Ahead of Telvent GIT S.A. Acquisition Announcement
On June 3, 2011, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York entered a Temporary Restraining Order freezing assets and trading proceeds of certain unknown purchasers of the securities of Telvent GIT S.A. (Unknown Purchasers). The Commission filed a complaint alleging that the Unknown Purchasers engaged in illegal insider trading in the days preceding the June 1, 2011 announcement that Schneider Electric S.A., a French company, and Telvent, a company based in Madrid, Spain, had entered into an agreement under which Schneider would offer to acquire all of the outstanding common stock of Telvent at a price of $40 per share, a 16% premium over the previous day’s closing price. The Commission’s complaint alleges that the Unknown Purchasers, through their insider trading, violated Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder. The complaint seeks permanent injunctive relief, the disgorgement of all illegal profits, and the imposition of civil money penalties.
The Commission’s complaint alleges that between April 29, 2011 and May 27, 2011, the Unknown Purchasers bought 1,200 Telvent call option contracts through an account at Pershing LLC. About two-thirds of the call option contracts were purchased within five calendar days (or two trading days) before the acquisition announcement and comprised as much as 52% of the volume of that series of call options that day. The price of the call options held by the Unknown Purchasers rose dramatically. In one instance, the price of the options increased by about 480%. The complaint alleges that, as a result, the Unknown Purchasers realized total profits of approximately $475,000 from the sale of the call options.
In addition to freezing the assets relating to the trading, the Temporary Restraining Order requires the Unknown Purchasers to identify themselves, imposes an expedited discovery schedule, and prohibits the defendants from destroying documents. [SEC v. One or More Purchasers of Securities of Telvent GIT S.A., 11 Civ. 3794 (TPG) (S.D.N.Y)] (LR-21991)
SEC Obtains Preliminary Injunction Freezing Assets in Case Involving Ponzi Scheme by Co-Founder of China Voice Holding Corp.
On June 5, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission obtained a preliminary injunction against multiple defendants in a case involving the co-founder of China Voice Holding Corp. The Commission also received additional relief it sought, including an order freezing the assets of multiple defendants and relief defendants. The preliminary injunction prevents the defendants from violating certain provisions of the securities laws, orders the preservation of documents, and requires the defendants to provide an accounting to determine the disposition of investor funds.
The Commission filed an emergency action on April 28, 2011, alleging that China Voice’s co-founder and former Chief Financial Officer, David Ronald Allen, with the assistance of two associates, Alex Dowlatshahi and Christopher Mills, and numerous related entities, launched what became an ongoing fraud that sought to raise at least $8.6 million from investors across the country. The Commission alleged that, contrary to what investors were told, proceeds were used to pay back earlier investors; to make payments to Allen, Dowlatshahi, and Mills; and to make payments to Allen-affiliated business, including China Voice.
The SEC’s complaint charges Allen, Dowlatshahi, Mills, and various related companies with violations of Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder. The SEC’s complaint also charges China Voice, its former chairman and CEO William Burbank IV, Gerald Patera, Ilya Drapkin, and Robert Wilson with violations of, among other things, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder.
The SEC’s investigation is ongoing. [SEC v. David Ronald Allen, et al., Civil Action No. 3:11-CV-822-O (N.D. Tex.)] (LR-21992)
