Securities and Exchange Commission Accuses 23 Hedge Funds of Market Manipulation Charges

In a broad crackdown, the Securities and Exchange Commission has accused 23 funds of market manipulation charges. All but one has settled for a total of $14.4 million. G2- Trading is fighting the charges. The SEC reported that the firms had violated Rule 105 which prohibits funds from short selling a company’s stock within five days prior to a public offering and then buying new shares in the public offering. The SEC claims that short selling ahead of a company’s public offering depresses the value of the shares and that the violating firms typically profit by buying the shares at artificially low prices. Deerfield Management has agreed to pay more than $1.8 million to settle the claims while DE Shaw has settled by paying $667,000. The others, paying various fines, disgorgement and interest, include: Blackthorn Investment Group; Claritas Investments; Credentia Group; Hudson Bay Capital Management; JGP Global Gestao de Recursos; Manikay Partners; Meru Capital Partners; Michael Stango; MS Junior Swiss Capital Holdings; Pan Capital; PEAK6 Capital Management; Philadelphia Financial Management; Polo Capital International Gestao de Recursos; Soundpost Partners; Southpoint Capital Advisors; Talkot Capital; Vollero Beach Capital Partners; War Chest Capital Partners; Western Standard; Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund also settled with the SEC.
