(Initial Decision No. 435; File No. 3-14390)
In the Matter of Steven Fortuna
On October 5, 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 Steven Fortuna. The Order finds that Fortuna is a resident of Westwood, Massachusetts. Fortuna was a co-founder and principal of S2 Capital Management, LP (S2 Capital), which was an unregistered, New York based hedge fund investment adviser. Prior to starting S2 Capital, Fortuna was a portfolio manager at Stratix Asset Management. S2 Capital served as the investment adviser to the hedge fund S2 Capital Fund, LP. Fortuna has held Series 7, 63, 86 and 87 licenses.
On November 5, 2009, the Commission filed an Amended Complaint in SEC v. Galleon Management, LP, et al., Civil Action No. 1:09-CV-8811 (SDNY), naming Fortuna as a defendant. On September 30, 2011, the Court entered an order permanently enjoining Fortuna, by consent, 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. The Commission’s complaint alleged that Fortuna engaged in insider trading that occurred in S2 Capital funds because he effectuated trades on behalf of S2 Capital, controlled S2 Capital and/or unlawfully tipped inside information to S2 Capital.
On October 20, 2009, Fortuna pled guilty to one count of securities fraud and three counts of conspiracy to commit securities fraud in violation of 15 U.S.C. §§ 78j(b) and 78ff and 18 U.S.C. § 371 before the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in United States v. Steven Fortuna, 10-CR-01003 (SDNY).
Based on the above, the Order bars Fortuna from association with any broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, or transfer agent. Fortuna consented to the issuance of the Order without admitting or denying the findings in the Order. (Rel. IA-3298; File No. 3-14577)
SEC Charges Silicon Valley Medical Technology Executives in Fraudulent Sales Scheme
The Securities and Exchange Commission today filed fraud charges against two former sales executives with Mountain View, Calif. medical equipment company Hansen Medical, Inc., alleging they orchestrated fraudulent transactions to inflate the company’s reported revenues. In a separate proceeding, the SEC also filed settled charges against Hansen Medical for providing misleading financial information to public investors.
The SEC’s complaint, filed in federal district court in San Francisco, alleges that Christopher Sells, Hansen Medical’s former Vice President of Commercial Operations, and Timothy Murawski, a former Vice President of Sales who reported to Sells, participated in multiple improper sales transactions in 2008 and 2009. The SEC alleges the individuals engaged in the scheme as Hansen Medical underwent efforts to raise additional capital from investors.
According to the SEC’s complaint, on multiple occasions Sells of Dallas, Tex., and Murawski of Lake Zurich, Ill., schemed to have Hansen Medical personnel temporarily install the company’s robotic catheter system at a customer site before the customer was ready for it so that Hansen Medical could record the product sale. Hansen Medical personnel would then immediately dismantle the equipment and put it in storage until months later, when they would return to reinstall the equipment. The SEC further alleges that, in a sales transaction in the final days of December 2008, Sells and Murawski instructed Hansen Medical personnel to forge a customer signature on certain required documents to allow the company to record the revenue that quarter. According to the SEC, Sells and Murawski’s schemes were intended to circumvent revenue recognition rules and to fool Hansen Medical’s finance personnel and auditors into believing that the sales had been completed and revenue could be recorded.
The SEC’s complaint charges Sells and Murawski with violations of Sections 17(a)(1) and (3) of the Securities Act, and Sections 10(b) and 13(b)(5) of the Exchange Act, and Rules 10b-5 and 13b2-1 thereunder, aiding and abetting violations of Sections 13(a), 13(b)(2)(A), and 13(b)(2)(B) of the Exchange Act and Rules 12b-20, 13a-1, and 13a-13 thereunder. The SEC also charges Sells with violations of Rules 13b2-2 under the Exchange Act. The SEC seeks permanent injunctions and financial penalties against Sells and Murawski, and also seeks to bar Sells from serving as an officer or director of a public company.
In a separate administrative proceeding, Hansen Medical consented (without admitting or denying the SEC’s findings) to the entry of a Order that requires that Hansen Medical to cease and desist from committing or causing any violations and any future violations of Sections 17(a)(2) and 17(a)(3) of the Securities Act, and Sections 13(a), 13(b)(2)(A) and 13(b)(2)(B) of the Exchange Act and Rules 12b-20, 13a-1 and 13a-13 thereunder. In considering whether to accept Hansen Medical's settlement offer, the Commission took into consideration Hansen Medical’s cooperation with the Commission’s investigation and its remedial efforts once the fraud came to light.
The case was investigated by Cameron Hoffman, Kristin Snyder, Ron Baer and Tracy Davis of the San Francisco Regional Office. The SEC’s litigation efforts will be led by Susan LaMarca and Sheila O’Callaghan. (Rel. 33-9265; 34-65501; File No. 3-14578); [SEC v. Christopher Sells and Timothy Murawski, Civil Case No. CV-11-4941-HRL (N.D. Cal.)] (LR-22116; AAE Rel. 3326)
Securities and Exchange Commission Orders Hearing on Registration Suspension or Revocation Against Seven Public Companies for Failure to Make Required Periodic Filings
Today 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 seven companies for failure to make required periodic filings with the Commission:
In this Order, the Division of Enforcement (Division) alleges that the seven 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. 34-65506; File No. 3-14579)
SEC Charges StratoComm Corporation, CEO, Former Director of Investor Relations and Outside Counsel with Fraud
On October 4, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a complaint in United States District Court for the Northern District of New York charging StratoComm Corporation, its CEO Roger D. Shearer, and its former Director of Investor Relations, Craig Danzig, with violating the antifraud provisions of the securities laws and with illegally selling securities in unregistered transactions. On October 3, 2011, the SEC filed a complaint in United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida alleging that attorney Stewart A. Merkin, StratoComm’s outside counsel, also committed securities fraud.
The SEC’s complaint filed in Albany, New York alleges that StratoComm, acting at Shearer’s direction and with Danzig’s assistance, issued and distributed public statements falsely portraying the company as actively engaged in the manufacture and sale of telecommunications systems for use in underdeveloped countries, particularly Africa. In reality, the company had no product and no revenue. The SEC’s complaint also alleges that StratoComm, Shearer and Danzig sold investors approximately $3 million worth of StratoComm stock in unregistered transactions. Shearer used much of that money for his own purposes, including paying a substantial part of the restitution he owed in connection with his guilty plea in a prior criminal proceeding.
The SEC’s complaint charges StratoComm 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. It charges Shearer with violating Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act, aiding and abetting StratoComm’s violations of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and with being liable as a control person for StratoComm’s violations. The SEC’s complaint charges Danzig with violating Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act, with violating Section 15(a) of the Exchange Act, and with aiding and abetting StratoComm’s violations of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder. The SEC’s complaint seeks permanent injunctions, disgorgement of unlawful proceeds plus prejudgment interest, and a financial penalty from all defendants. It also seeks an order prohibiting Shearer from serving as an officer or director of a public company and prohibiting Shearer and Danzig from participating in the offering of a penny stock.
The SEC’s complaint filed in Miami, Florida alleges that Merkin wrote four attorney representation letters for posting on the website of Pink Sheets LLC and its successor, Pink OTC Markets, Inc. In those letters Merkin disclaimed knowledge of any investigation into possible violations of the securities laws by StratoComm or any of its officers or directors. However, the SEC’s complaint also alleges that Merkin was representing StratoComm and several individuals in connection with the SEC’s investigation at the time. Nevertheless, in order that StratoComm’s shares would continue to be quoted, the SEC’s complaint alleges that Merkin falsely stated that to his knowledge StatoComm was not under investigation. The SEC’s complaint charges Merkin with violating Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder. It seeks a permanent injunction, disgorgement of unlawful proceeds plus prejudgment interest, a financial penalty, and an order prohibiting Merkin from participating in the offering of a penny stock. [SEC v. StratoComm Corporation., et al., Civil Action No. 1:11-CV-1188 (N.D.NY); SEC v. Stewart A. Merkin, Civil Action No. 1:11-cv-23585 (S.D.FL)] (LR-22115)
Commission Charges Operators of Green Product-Themed Ponzi Scheme
The Commission today announced that it obtained an emergency court order today to halt a Ponzi scheme that promised investors rich returns on water-filtering natural stone pavers, but bilked them of approximately $26 million over a four-year period.
The Commission’s complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that convicted felon Eric Aronson and others defrauded investors in PermaPave Companies, a group of firms based on Long Island, N.Y., and controlled by Aronson. About 140 individuals, many working in the construction or landscaping business, invested in the scheme between 2006 and 2010, the Commission alleged. Investors were told that PermaPave Companies had a tremendous backlog of orders for pavers imported from Australia, which could be sold in the U.S. at a substantial mark-up, yielding monthly returns to investors of 7.8% to 33%. In reality, the complaint states that there was little demand for the product, and the cost of the pavers far exceeded the revenue from sales.
Lacking the profits promised to investors, Aronson and two other PermaPave Companies executives, Vincent Buonauro Jr., and Robert Kondratick, used new investments to make payments to earlier investors and then siphoned off much of the rest for themselves, buying luxury cars, gambling trips to Las Vegas, and jewelry. In addition, the complaint alleges that Aronson used investors’ money to make court-ordered restitution payments to victims of a previous scheme to which he pleaded guilty to conducting in 2000.
According to the Commission’s complaint, when investors began demanding money owed to them, Aronson accused them of committing a felony by lending the PermaPave Companies money at the interest rates he promised them, which he suddenly claimed were usurious. Aronson and his attorney, Fredric Aaron, then allegedly made false statements to persuade investors to convert their securities into ones that deferred payments owed them for several years.
The Commission also alleges that Interlink-US-Network, Ltd., a publicly traded company controlled by Kondratick, Aaron, and Aronson, issued a Form 8-K, signed by Kondratick, which falsely stated that LED Capital Corp. had agreed to invest $6 million in Interlink. According to the complaint, LED Capital Corp. did not have $6 million and had no dealings, let alone any agreements, with Interlink.
U.S. District Court Judge Jed S. Rakoff granted the Commission’s request to freeze assets of the defendants and eight relief defendants. The Commission is seeking preliminary and permanent injunctions against the defendants, and to have them return their allegedly illicit profits with prejudgment interest, and pay civil monetary penalties. In addition, the Commission seeks to bar Aronson, Kondratick, and Aaron from participating in penny-stock offerings and from serving as officers or directors of public companies.
The SEC’s complaint charges Aronson, Kondratick, Buonauro, the PermaPave Companies, and Interlink with violations of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and charges Aaron with aiding and abetting the Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 violations. The complaint charges Interlink with violations of Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act and Rules 12b-20 and 13a-11 thereunder, and charges Aronson, Kondratick, and Aaron with aiding and abetting these violations. The complaint also asserts violations of Section 5(a) and 5(c) of the Securities Act as to Aronson, Buonauro, and the PermaPave Companies and violations of Section 15(a) of the Exchange Act as to Aronson and Buonauro.
The SEC acknowledges the assistance of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York and the Securities Fraud Squad of Federal Bureau of Investigation in connection with this matter. [SEC v. Eric Aronson, Vincent Buonauro, Jr., Robert Kondratick, Fredric Aaron, Esq., PermaPave Industries, LLC, PermaPave USA Corp., PermaPave Distributions, Inc., Permeable Solutions, Inc., Verigreen, LLC, and Interlink-US-Network, Ltd., Defendants, and Caroline Aronson, Deborah Buonauro, DASH Development, LLC, Aron Holdings, Inc., PermaPave Construction Corp., Dymoncrete Industries, LLC, Dymon Rock LI, LLC, and Lumi-Coat, Inc., Relief Defendants, Civil Action No. 11 Civ. 7033 (S.D.N.Y.)] (LR-22117)
