In the Matter of Gregory P. Loles
The Commission announced the issuance of 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 Gregory P. Loles (Loles). The Order finds that Loles was the owner and operator of Apeiron Capital Management, Inc. (Apeiron), an unregistered investment adviser in Westport, Connecticut. On July 26, 2011, Loles pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud in violation of Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 1341, one count of wire fraud in violation of Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 1343, one count of securities fraud in violation of Title 15 of the United States Code, Sections 77q(a) and 77x, and one count of money laundering in violation of Title 18 of the United States Code, Section 1956 before the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, in United States v. Gregory P. Loles Crim. Action No. 3:10CR247 (MRK). The four counts of the indictment to which Loles pleaded guilty alleged, among other things, that Loles defrauded investors and obtained money by means of materially false and misleading statements while operating Apeiron as an unregistered investment adviser, that he caused investors to wire transfer funds to Apeiron’s account for investment purposes, which he then diverted for his own personal use and benefit, and that he used the United States mails and private commercial interstate carriers to deliver checks to investors as purported interest from investments in order to perpetuate his fraud.
Based on the above, the Order bars Loles from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, municipal advisor, transfer agent, or nationally recognized statistical rating organization. Loles consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings, except as to the Commission’s jurisdiction over him and the subject matter of the proceedings, and the finding regarding his guilty plea, which are admitted. (Rel. No. IA-3272; File No. 3-14529).
In the Matter of Richard A. Geiger
On September 6, 2011, the Commission issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions (Order) against Richard A. Geiger, based upon the entry of a permanent injunction against him in SEC v. Sierra Brokerage Services, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. C2-03-cv-326 (S.D. Ohio).
The Commission’s complaint alleged that Geiger participated with others in a scheme to manipulate the price of BluePoint Linux Software Corporation (“BluePoint”) shares. Geiger worked in concert with Sierra Brokerage Services, Inc. (“Sierra”) and others to create artificial trading activity and to manipulate the share price of BluePoint from $6 to a high price of $21 on the first day that BluePoint shares were traded. Geiger aided and abetted Sierra’s price leadership and domination of other market makers by leading the bid and raising the bid throughout the first day of trading even though it had no legitimate reason to do so.
Based on the above, the Order bars Geiger from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, municipal advisor, transfer agent, or nationally recognized statistical rating organization. The Order also bars Geiger from participating in any offering of a penny stock. Geiger consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order except for the entry of the permanent injunction against him, which he admitted. (Rel. No. 34-65265; File No. 3-14530).
In The Matter Of Rick Lawton
The Commission announced the issuance of an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act), Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions (Order) against Rick Lawton. The Order finds that on March 16, 2011, a judgment was entered against Lawton in Securities and Exchange Commission v. Earthly Mineral Solutions, Inc., et al. (Civil Action Number 2:07-CV-01057-JCM-(LRL)) (D. Nev.), permanently enjoining him from future violations of Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, and Sections 10(b) and 15(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder.
Based on the above, the Order bars Lawton from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, municipal advisor, transfer agent, or nationally recognized statistical rating organization; and from participating in any offering of a penny stock, including: acting as a promoter, finder, consultant, agent or other person who engages in activities with a broker, dealer or issuer for purposes of the issuance or trading in any penny stock, or inducing or attempting to induce the purchase or sale of any penny stock. Lawton consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order, except he admitted the entry of the injunction. (Rel. No. 34-65270; File No. 3-14531).
In the Matter of Ran H. Furman
The Commission announced the issuance of an Order Instituting Public Administrative Proceedings and Imposing Temporary Suspension Pursuant to Rule 102(e)(3) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice against Ran H. Furman (Furman). The Commission found that Furman, a CPA, was permanently enjoined from violating the federal securities laws on July 8, 2011, by a court of competent jurisdiction. Based on the above, The Commission deemed it appropriate and in the public interest that Furman be temporarily suspended from appearing or practicing before the Commission. Furman may within thirty days of service of the Order file a petition with the Commission to lift the temporary suspension, and the Commission shall then have thirty days to lift the temporary suspension or set the matter for hearing, or both. If no petition is received, the suspension becomes permanent.
Previously, on July 8, 2011, following a February 25, 2011 jury verdict in favor of the Commission and partial summary judgment granted in the Commission’s favor on November 18, 2009, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California entered a final judgment against Furman, permanently enjoining him from future violations of Sections 10(b) and 13(b)(5) of the Exchange Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78j(b) and 78m(b)(5), and Rules 10b-5, 13a-14, 13b2-1, and 13b2-2 thereunder, 17 C.F.R. §§ 240.10b-5, 240.13a-14, 240.13b2-1, and 240.13b2-2, and from aiding and abetting violations of Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act, 15 U.S.C. § 78m(a), and Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, and 13a-13 thereunder, 17 C.F.R. §§ 240.12b-20, 240-13a-1, and 240.13a-13. [SEC v. Retail Pro, Inc. (fka Island Pacific, Inc.), et al., Civil Action Number 08 CV 1620 WQH (RBB) (S.D. Cal.)] (LR No. 22035). (Rel. No. 34-65271; File No. 3-14532; AAER Rel. No. 3318 Sept. 6, 2011).
Commission Obtains Restraining Order Against National Stock Transfer, Inc., Kay Berenson-Galster And Roger Greer
On September 2, 2011, the Honorable Bruce Jenkins, United States District Judge, entered a temporary restraining order against National Stock Transfer, Inc. (National), National’s president Kay Berenson-Galster (Galster) and National’s owner, Roger Greer (Greer) from future violations of the federal securities laws relating to transfer agents.
The Commission’s complaint, which was filed on September 1, 2011, in the United States District Court for the District of Utah, alleges that, for at least five years, National Stock Transfer, Inc. has been violating many of the transfer agent provisions of the federal securities laws. The Complaint alleges, among other things, that National has failed to report lost or stolen securities in a timely manner, failed to maintain certain records, failed to maintain control books for all of its issuers and failed to file its annual report with the Securities and Exchange Commission. During the time period covered by the complaint, National acted as the transfer agent for 58 issues of common and preferred stock.
National has recently been physically locked out of its office by its creditor, Woodward Capital Partners, LLC, as part of a private state court case. As part of the relief obtained in the Commission’s action, the District Court ordered a partial stay of a judgment obtained by Woodward against National and Galster in the state court action.
National was restrained from violations of Sections 17(a)(3) and 17A(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and Rules 17Ad-2, 17f-1, 17f-2(a), 17Ac2-1(c), 17Ac-2-2, 17Ad-6, 17Ad-7, 17Ad-10, 17Ad-13, 17Ad-15(c), 17Ad-17 and 17Ad-19 thereunder, and Galster and Greer with aiding and abetting violations of Sections 17(a)(3) and 17A(d) of the Exchange Act and Rules 17Ad-2, 17f-1, 17f-2(a), 17Ac2-1(c), 17Ac-2-2, 17Ad-6, 17Ad-7, 17Ad-10, 17Ad-13, 17Ad-15(c), 17Ad-17 and 17Ad-19 thereunder. The complaint also seeks civil penalties against National, Galster and Greer. [Securities and Exchange Commission v.
