SEC Suspends Trading in the Securities of Basin Water, Inc.
On June 30, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission ordered the temporary suspension of trading in the securities of Basin Water, Inc., commencing at 9:30 a.m. EDT on June 30, 2011, and terminating at 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 14, 2011.
The Commission ordered this trading suspension because of questions that have arisen regarding the accuracy and adequacy of publicly disseminated information concerning, among other things, Basin’s current financial condition because it has not filed a periodic report since the period ended March 31, 2009. Basin is quoted on the OTC Link operated by the OTC Markets Group, Inc. under the symbol “BWTRQ.”
The Commission cautions brokers, 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 Basin.
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 suspension, 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 it has complied with the rule, it should not enter any quotation but immediately contact the staff in the Division of Trading and Markets, Office of Interpretation and Guidance, at (202) 551-5760. If any broker or dealer is uncertain as to what is required by Rule 15c2-11, it should refrain from entering quotations relating to the securities of Basin until such time as it has familiarized itself with the rule and is certain that all of its provisions have been met. If any broker or dealer enters any quotation that is in violation of the rule, the Commission will consider the need for prompt enforcement action.
The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy has information for investors and members of the general public on topics directly related to this action by the SEC. See http://www.sec.gov/investor/antispaminitiative.htm for a compilation of helpful links. (Rel. 34-64775)
In the Matter of Ahmad Haris Tajyar
On June 29, 2011, the Commission issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Section 203(f) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions (Order) against Ahmad Haris Tajyar. The Order finds that Tajyar, age 34, operated Dionysus Capital, LP (Dionysus), an unregistered hedge fund, and controlled the hedge fund’s general partner, Dionysus Management, LLC, which acted as an investment adviser to Dionysus. The Order finds that on April 27, 2011, a judgment was entered by consent against Tajyar in SEC v. Ahmad Haris Tajyar, et al., (Civil Action Number CV 09-03988 JFW (PJWx)(C.D. CA), permanently enjoining him from future violations of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder.
Based on the above, the Order bars Tajyar from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, municipal advisor, transfer agent, or nationally recognized statistical ratings organization. Tajyar consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order, except he admitted to the entry of the injunction. (Rel. IA-3228; File No. 3-14446)
In the Matter of LaBarge, Inc.
On June 30, 2011, the Commission brought charges against LaBarge, Inc. (LaBarge) for failing to implement and maintain adequate internal controls and books and records and for filing materially inaccurate period reports in 2006 and 2007.
According to the Commission’s Order Instituting Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings, and Imposing a Cease-and-Desist Order and a Penalty (Order), from January 2006 through March 2007, LaBarge failed to keep accurate books and records or implement and maintain sufficient internal controls regarding its use of estimates of completion costs for certain long-term production contracts. LaBarge used these estimates to determine its cost of sales and net earnings before income tax, which it disclosed in the periodic reports that it filed with the Commission. LaBarge’s internal controls lapses and deficient books and records resulted in it filing inaccurate periodic reports in 2006 and 2007 that overstated its net earnings before income tax for the second quarter of 2006 and the second quarter of 2007 by as much as 8%.
Based on the above, the Order finds that LaBarge violated Sections 13(a), 13(b)(2)(A), and 13(b)(2)(B) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, and 13a-13 thereunder. The Order requires LaBarge to cease and desist from committing or causing any violations and any future violations of these provisions and to pay a $200,000 civil penalty. LaBarge consented to the entry of the Order without admitting or denying the findings in the Order. (Rel. 34-64776; AAE Rel. 3297; File No. 3-14447)
In the Matter of Patrick L. Martin
On June 30, 2011, the Commission issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 203(f) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and Notice of Hearing against Patrick L. Martin (Martin). In the Order, the Division of Enforcement alleges that Martin was the chief manager of LandOak Securities, LLC (LandOak Securities), an investment adviser registered with the Commission, since April 2000. During the time in which he engaged in the conduct underlying the complaint described below, Martin was a registered representative of LandOak Securities, the registered broker-dealer. The Division also alleges that on March 29, 2011, a final judgment was entered by consent against Martin, permanently enjoining him from future violations of Sections 206(1), 206(2), 206(4), 207, and 204 of the Advisers Act and Rule 204-2 thereunder, in the civil action entitled Securities and Exchange Commission v. LandOak Securities, et al., Civil Action Number 3:08-cv-0209, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. The Commission’s complaint alleged the following: Between July 1997 and July 1998, Martin sold investors approximately $3.6 million in promissory notes and membership interests in LandOak Mortgage, a Tennessee limited liability company. In July 2002, Martin and Atkins took $1,545,000 from LandOak Mortgage and diverted or loaned it to Tice Technologies, Inc. (Tice). Martin did not disclose to LandOak Mortgage’s investors, several of whom were advisory clients of LandOak Securities, that Martin had a conflict of interest because he was a director of Tice and owned a substantial stake in that company. Martin also failed to maintain certain books and records required of investment advisers registered with the Commission, and also made false statements and material omissions in LandOak Securities’ Form ADV and amendments filed with the Commission
A hearing before an administrative law judge will be scheduled to determine whether the allegations in the Order are true, to provide Martin an opportunity to respond to these allegations, and to determine what, if any, remedial action is appropriate in the public interest. The Order directed the Administrative Law Judge to issue an initial decision within 210 days from the date of service of the Order. (Rels. 34-64786; IA-3229; File No. 3-14448)
SEC Charges Company Officers and Penny Stock Promoters in Series of Kickback Schemes and Other Fraudulent Schemes
The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged five individuals and three microcap companies with securities fraud for their roles in various schemes featuring illicit kickbacks, a bribe, and the creation of a website to deliver e-mail blasts to potential investors.
The SEC worked closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida and the Federal Bureau of Investigation as the separate schemes were uncovered through an FBI undercover operation. The operation was conducted in such a way that no investors suffered harm.
According to the SEC’s complaints filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, most of the schemes involved the payment of kickbacks to a purportedly corrupt pension fund manager, in exchange for the fund’s purchase of restricted shares of stock in the various microcap companies. Another scheme involved a bribe that was to be paid to a purported corrupt stockbroker who agreed to use his ability to buy stock in his customers’ discretionary accounts to purchase a microcap company’s stock in the open market. What the insiders and promoters did not know was that the people with whom they arranged these illegal transactions were actually undercover FBI agents or confidential sources participating in an undercover operation. A final scheme involved a stock promoter who created a website to tout a penny stock company through a volley of e-mail blasts and who posted phony testimonials from fake investors. The defendants reside or are based in South Florida, California, Texas, and Nevada.
The SEC alleges that the company officers and a promoter in most of the schemes understood they needed to disguise the kickbacks as payments to phony consulting companies, which they knew would perform no actual work. They also knew the purported corrupt fund trustee would be violating his fiduciary duties to his clients by taking part in the kickbacks. In other instances, they knew that their illegal activities were meant to artificially inflate the companies’ stock price.
The complaints allege the defendants violated Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, and/or Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The SEC is seeking: permanent injunctions and financial penalties against all the defendants; disgorgement plus prejudgment interest against the defendants who received ill-gotten gains; and penny stock bars against all the individual defendants.

SEC v. Edward A. Allen, David L. Olson, and A&O Investments, LLC
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced today that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Ohio filed criminal charges against Edward A. Allen and David L. Olson, residents of Lakeland, Florida, accusing them of securities fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy for their roles in a $14 million real estate investment fraud.
The criminal case includes many of the same allegations in a civil injunctive action previously filed by the Commission on May 20, 2010, in the United States District Court in Cleveland, Ohio against Allen, Olson, and A&O Investments, LLC (A&O). According to the Commission’s complaint, from approximately September 2005 through December 2008, Allen and Olson raised approximately $14.8 million from at least 100 investors through the offer and sale of promissory notes issued by A&O. The complaint alleges that Allen and Olson recruited promissory note investors from customers of Georgia-based registered broker-dealer World Group Securities, Inc., for which Allen and Olson were registered representatives, and through other means. The complaint alleges that Allen and Olson told investors that they would use the investors’ money to purchase, rehabilitate, and sell real estate. The complaint alleges that Allen and Olson’s representations about their use of offering proceeds, the collateral securing the investments, and the success of the investments were all false. According to the complaint, in reality Allen and Olson operated a Ponzi scheme by using approximately $4.4 million of investors’ funds to pay “interest” and, in some cases, principal to previous investors and spent only $5.1 million of the $14.8 million raised to purchase and rehabilitate real estate. The complaint further alleges that Allen and Olson used $2.2 million to pay personal expenses for themselves and their family members. According to the complaint, Allen and Olson also misrepresented and omitted to state material facts regarding the collateral securing the notes, in that as much as approximately $5.5 million worth of A&O promissory notes purportedly were secured by the same piece of property in Lakeland, Florida. This property’s value was grossly inadequate to secure the notes. The complaint charges Allen, Olson, and A&O with violating Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Rule 10b-5 thereunder.
On Nov.9, 2010, the Commission obtained a judgment against Defendants Olson and A&O, which includes permanent injunctions against future violations of the securities laws and orders them to pay disgorgement of $10,339,849, representing ill-gotten gains, and prejudgment interest of $736,631. On June 6, 2011, an administrative law judge issued an order pursuant to Section 15(b)(6) of the Exchange Act barring Olson from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, or transfer agent, and from participating in any offering of penny stock. The Commission’s case against Allen is still pending. [SEC v. Edward A. Allen, David L. Olson, and A&O Investments, LLC, Case No. 1:10-cv-01143 (N.D. Ohio)] ( LR-22019)
