SEC and FSA Hold Strategic Dialogue Meeting

Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary L. Schapiro and senior SEC staff met today with the UK Financial Services Authority’s (FSA) chief executive Hector Sants and its managing director of the conduct business unit Martin Wheatley as part of the regular, ongoing SEC-FSA Strategic Dialogue to discuss regulatory approaches to current issues.

During the SEC-FSA dialogue, the agencies exchanged views on a number of topics including issues relating to over-the-counter derivatives, technology-driven trading strategies, market surveillance, and short selling, as well as the agencies’ respective participation in the Financial Stability Board and the International Organization of Securities Commissions.  In addition, the agencies discussed the impact of current regulatory reform efforts being undertaken in both jurisdictions.

Chairman Schapiro said, “The ongoing dialogue between the SEC and the UK FSA demonstrates both agencies’ commitment to aligning interests with the goal of achieving regulatory consistency.  As Europe and the U.S. continue to enhance regulation in the wake of the financial crisis, working with all of our counterparts is essential to help prevent regulatory arbitrage, especially in the areas involving over-the-counter derivatives and market structure.”

FSA CEO Sants said, “Close cooperation between the FSA and the SEC is important as we seek to meet the G20 commitment to enhance transparency, mitigate systemic risk, and protect against market abuse.  The strategic dialogue is key to this and gives the two agencies the opportunity to find common ground, build on areas of mutual interest, and identify potential regulatory gaps.”

The SEC and FSA have long had a close relationship.  The SEC and the FSA’s predecessor agency first signed enforcement information-sharing arrangements in 1986.  More recently in 2006, the SEC and FSA executed a supervisory information-sharing memorandum of understanding in which the two regulators laid out how they would share information relating to the financial health and regulatory compliance of regulated entities operating in both countries.

Today’s meeting provided an opportunity for the SEC and the FSA to restate their commitment to working together and continue discussions in the areas of common regulatory interest including cross-border enforcement cases, the oversight of dually-regulated firms, and the global regulatory agenda.

Commission Declares Decision as to American Resource Technologies, Inc., Final

The decision of an administrative law judge with respect to American Resource Technologies, Inc., has become final. The law judge found that American Resource Technologies, Inc., violated Section 13(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13 by not filing any periodic reports since it filed a Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2009, which showed a net loss of $394,684 for the prior nine months. Further, since August 14, 2008, American Resources has not filed a timely periodic report with the Commission, only a succession of untimely or missing reports. American Resource has failed to timely file thirty-seven of forty-six periodic reports during the filing periods ended December 1999 through March 2011. The law judge also noted that, although American Resource filed its Form 8-K for the period ended May 15, 2011, and Form 10-K for the period ended September 30, 2009, it still remains delinquent in its reporting obligations. (Rel. 34-65540; File No. 3-14378)

Delinquent Filers’ Stock Registrations Revoked

The registrations of the registered securities of International Solubles Corp., Internet Capital Ventures & Association, Inc. (n/k/a Atlantis Studios Corporation), Intratel Group, Ltd., iQrom Communications, Inc., Irutil Co. Inc., and ISNI.net, Inc., have been revoked. Each had repeatedly failed to file required annual and quarterly reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Thus, each violated a crucial provision of the federal securities laws that requires public corporations to publicly disclose current, accurate financial information so that investors may make informed decisions. The revocations were ordered in an administrative proceeding before an administrative law judge. (Rel. 34-65546; File No. 3-14546)

In the Matter of Sharon Energy, Ltd.

An Administrative Law Judge has issued an Order Making Findings and Revoking Registration by Default as to Sheldahl, Inc. (Default Order) in Sharon Energy, Ltd., Admin. Proc. No. 3-14556. The Order Instituting Proceedings alleged that Respondent repeatedly failed to file required annual and quarterly reports while its securities were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Default Order finds these allegations to be true and revokes the registration of each class of registered securities of Sheldahl, Inc., pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The proceeding has ended as to Sonoma International, Inc. See Sharon Energy Ltd., Exchange Act Release No. 65463 (Oct. 3, 2011). The proceeding is still ongoing as to Sharon Energy, Ltd., which filed a Form 15 with the Commission on September 30, 2011, to voluntarily revoke its registration effective by December 29, 2011. (Rel. 34-65547; File No. 3-14556)

In the Matter of Glenn M. Barikmo

An Administrative Law Judge has issued an Initial Decision (Decision) in Glenn M. Barikmo, Admin. Proc. No. 3-14474. On June 30, 2011, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida entered a final judgment against Glenn M. Barikmo (Barikmo), permanently enjoining him from violating Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Exchange Act Rule 10b-5, and from aiding and abetting any violation of Sections 206(1), 206(2), and 206(4) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (Advisers Act) and Advisers Act Rule 206(4)-8, in connection with his involvement in the fraudulent use of investor proceeds in two hedge funds, Arcanum Equity Fund, LLC and Vestium Equity Fund, LLC.

Based on the final judgment entered against Barikmo, the Decision bars Barikmo from association with a broker, dealer, investment adviser, municipal securities dealer, transfer agent, and NRSRO, pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Exchange Act and Section 203(f) of the Advisers Act. (Initial Decision No. 436; File No. 3-14474)

SEC Brings Settled FCPA Action Against Watts Water Technologies, Inc. and Leesen Chang

Today, the Commission entered an Order against Watts Water Technologies, Inc. (Watts) and a former employee, Leesen Chang, arising out of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) through a former Watts’ subsidiary in China, Watts Valve (Changsha) Co., Ltd. (CWV). As described in the Commission’s Order, CWV produced and supplied large valve products for infrastructure projects that were constructed and developed by state-owned entities in China. Between 2006 and 2009, employees of CWV made improper payments to employees of certain state-owned design institutes in order to influence the design institutes to recommend CWV valve products to the state-owned customers and to create design specifications that favored CWV valve products. The improper payments were facilitated by a sales incentive policy at the subsidiary that permitted sales employees to use their sales commissions to make payments to design institutes of up to three percent of the total contract amount. As a result, payments to design institute were recorded in CWV’s books and records as commissions, causing Watts’ books and records to be inaccurate. Chang, a U.S. citizen and the former vice president of sales for Watts’ management subsidiary in China, approved commission payments that itemized payments to design institutes and knew or should have known that the payments were improperly recorded as commissions.

As further described in the Commission’s Order, although Watts failed to implement a system of FCPA compliance and internal controls commensurate with the risks posed by CWV when it acquired the subsidiary, upon discovering the violations in 2009, the company voluntarily self-reported the improper payments, shared the results of its internal investigation and further cooperated with the Commission staff’s investigation. The company also promptly undertook numerous remedial measures.

Watts and Chang, without admitting or denying any of the findings in the Order except as to the jurisdiction of the Commission over them, consented to the entry of the Order that orders Watts to pay disgorgement of $2,755,815, prejudgment interest of $820,791 and a $200,000 penalty, orders Chang to pay a $25,000 penalty, orders Watts and Chang to cease and desist from committing or causing any violations and any future violations of Sections 13(b)(2)(A) and 13(b)(2)(B) of the Exchange Act, and orders Chang to cease and desist from committing or causing any violations and future violations of Exchange Act Rule 13b2-1. (Rel. 34-65555; File No. 3-14585; AAE Rel. 3328)

In the Matter of EDGA Exchange, Inc., EDGX Exchange, Inc. and Direct Edge ECN, LLC

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (Commission) announced the issuance of an Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Sections 19(h) and 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order (Order) against EDGA Exchange, Inc. (EDGA), EDGX Exchange, Inc. (EDGX) and Direct Edge ECN, LLC doing business as DE Route (DE Route) (collectively, Respondents).

The Order finds that Respondents violated the federal securities laws in connection with two systems incidents occurring in November 2010 and April 2011. The Order finds that in responding to the November 2010 incident, EDGA, EDGX and DE Route improperly assumed and traded out of member positions through DE Route’s error account in violation of the Exchanges’ rules, and DE Route engaged in improper short selling activity in violation of Regulation SHO. The Order further finds that in responding to the April 2011 incident, EDGX failed to timely identify its quotations as manual quotations in violation of Regulation NMS.

The Order finds that EDGA violated Sections 19(b) and 19(g) of the Exchange Act, EDGX violated Sections 19(b) and 19(g) of the Exchange Act and Rule 602(a)(3) thereunder, and DE Route caused violations of Section 19(g) of the Exchange Act and violated Rules 200(g) and 203(b) thereunder. The Order finds that these violations occurred against the backdrop of weaknesses in the Respondents’ systems, processes, and controls.

Respondents, without admitting or denying the Commission’s findings, consented to the entry of an order imposing a censure and requiring them to cease and desist from further violations of the federal securities laws and to comply with significant undertakings designed to improve their information technology systems and controls and compliance procedures. Respondents have begun or completed many of the Undertakings and cooperated with the Commission staff’s investigation. (Rel. 34-65556; File No. 3-14586)
