SEC and FSA Co-Host International Roundtable on Market Structures
Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Mary Schapiro and Martin Wheatley, Managing Director of the Conduct Business Unit at the U.K. Financial Services Authority (FSA), today co-hosted a meeting among regulators from Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia to share views on issues pertaining to equity market structure.
The roundtable, held at FSA headquarters in London, considered how advances in technology, new trading strategies, and the increasing integration and globalization of markets have impacted developments in equity market structure. Specifically, the leaders of the various regulatory agencies shared their views on issues related to automated trading strategies, such as high frequency trading, market fragmentation, and undisplayed liquidity (for example, “dark pools”). The participants also discussed possible approaches that regulators might adopt in the light of these market structure developments. The discussion highlighted the need for global coordination on regulatory approaches to many of these issues.
Chairman Schapiro said, “The rapid developments in trading technologies and trading platforms have had a profound impact on the evolution in the structure of markets around the world. This roundtable provided an important opportunity for regulators to share their experiences and their views on these developments. Cooperation among regulators at an international level is increasingly vital in ensuring the safety and soundness of our markets and protecting investors, and the meeting was a tremendous success in advancing such cooperation on market structure issues.”
Mr. Wheatley added, “The meeting provided an opportunity for regulators from around the globe to discuss vital markets structure issues, particularly the impact and role of high frequency trading. The meeting allowed for the sharing of useful information between the regulators and will contribute to a sound basis for continued work to be done at a global level.”
Today’s meeting laid the groundwork for future discussions on these issues, allowing securities regulators an opportunity to continue to work together to address advances in technology and new trading strategies. (Press Rel. 2011-209)

Delinquent Filer’s Stock Registration Revoked
The registration of the registered securities of SJ Electronics, Inc., has been revoked. It had repeatedly failed to file required annual and quarterly reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Thus, it 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 revocation was ordered in an administrative proceeding before an administrative law judge. (Rel. 34-65558; File No. 3-14432)

On October 14, 2011, the Commission revoked the registration of each class of registered securities of Golden Oil Co. (GOCO) for failure to make required periodic filings with the Commission.
Without admitting or denying the findings in the Order, except as to jurisdiction, which it admitted, GOCO consented to the entry of an Order Making Findings and Revoking Registration of Securities Pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as to Golden Oil Co. finding that it had failed to comply with Section 13(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Rules 13a-1 and 13a-13 thereunder and revoking the registration of each class of GOCO’s securities pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Exchange Act.

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.

Commission Sets Aside Disciplinary Action Taken By PCX Equities, Inc. Against Michael Picozzi III
The Commission has set aside disciplinary action against Michael Picozzi III that was taken by PCX Equities, Inc., a former national securities exchange. The PCX had found that Picozzi, who was formerly associated with Andover Brokerage, failed to respond to a Notice of Summary Determination, which the PCX entered against Picozzi after he failed to respond to a PCX complaint alleging that Picozzi had not cooperated with a PCX investigation. The PCX censured and permanently barred Picozzi from association with any PCX member or member organization. NYSE Euronext, the PCX's successor in interest, did not oppose Picozzi's petition, noting that there was "uncertainty" surrounding PCX's attempt to serve Picozzi and that, "given the passage of time, the [NYSE] likely cannot now as a practical matter determine whether Picozzi, or even Andover for that matter, engaged in any improper conduct in connection with the trading that was the subject of the Investigation."
In granting Picozzi's petition, the Commission emphasized that its decision turned on the particular circumstances of the case, including the lack of evidence surrounding the PCX's attempts to serve Picozzi with the Notice of Summary Determination and the NYSE's statement that it did not oppose Picozzi's petition. The Commission further emphasized that its decision in no way diminished established precedent that a respondent's lack of awareness of official regulatory correspondence is not a defense where evidence shows that the regulatory entity properly sent correspondence to the address that the respondent provided to the regulatory agency. (Rel. 34-65569; File No. 3-14396)
Commission Dismisses Application For Review of FINRA Disciplinary Action
The Commission has dismissed an application for review of FINRA disciplinary action taken against Sharemaster, a FINRA member firm and a registered broker-dealer. FINRA found that Sharemaster violated Rule 17a-5 of the Securities Exchange Act by filing an annual report that was audited by an accounting firm that was not registered with the PCAOB. FINRA suspended the firm until it filed a compliant annual report. After Sharemaster filed an application for review, the suspension was lifted because Sharemaster filed a compliant annual report. As the Commission previously has held, "Section 19(d) does not . . . grant [the Commission] jurisdiction to review disciplinary actions generally, but only over those in which a final disciplinary sanction is imposed." The Commission found that, because the suspension was no longer in effect, there was no final disciplinary sanction within the meaning of Exchange Act Section 19(d) that is subject to review by the Commission. The Commission therefore dismissed Sharemaster's application. (Rel. 34-65570; File No. 3-14104)
Penny Stock Touters Ordered to Pay Fines, Disgorgement; Subject to Lifetime Bars on Penny Stock Dealings
On October 13, 2011 the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida entered judgments against a group of penny-stock promoters arising out of their repackaging of “news” issued by a series of sham energy companies. The judgments, which the defendants consented to as part of a settlement with the Commission, require them to pay penalties and to disgorge profits from their illicit activities. The judgments also permanently ban the defendants from touting and other dealings involving penny stocks.
The judgments came in a civil action that the Commission filed earlier this year against Miami-based stock-touting company Wall Street Capital Funding LLC (WSCF) and its principals – owners Philip Cardwell and Roy Campbell and their associate Aaron Hume. In its Complaint initiating the action, the SEC alleged that the defendants were in the business of distributing promotional materials styled as “Wall Street News Alerts” for penny-stock companies. According to the SEC, one such company, PrimeGen Energy Corp., purported to have great success in drilling for oil in 2009 and 2010. The SEC alleged, however, that PrimeGen was phony: its corporate headquarters were a rented mailbox in a UPS Store opened with a do-not-forward instruction; its phone line was unattended; and its web page was generated by copying the source code from another company’s web site. As alleged in the Complaint, WSCF’s “investment opinions,” emails, and web profiles typically expressed positive opinions about penny-stock companies, their business prospects, and the future direction of their stock price. WSCF, according to the Complaint, created the misleading appearance of an independent basis for its statements even though it was merely repeating the penny-stock companies’ claims. Moreover, the SEC alleged, even when the defendants received ample warning signs that a scam was afoot, they always did the same thing: they closed their eyes and published.
The SEC’s Complaint was filed February 7, 2011 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The Complaint charged Wall Street Capital Funding LLC, Philip Cardwell, Roy Campbell, and Aaron Hume 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, which prohibit fraudulent conduct in connection with securities transactions. Judge Donald L. Graham presided over the action, No. 11-cv-20413-DLG. The judgments imposed by Judge Graham require the defendants, among other things, to pay penalties and disgorgement totaling $300,000, and permanently bar them from promotional activities and other dealings involving penny stocks. The defendants consented to the judgments without admitting or denying the SEC’s allegations.
The SEC’s action was litigated by Todd D. Brody and Daniel R. Walfish, and originated from an investigation handled by Celeste Chase and Mr. Walfish, all of the SEC’s New York Regional Office.
