Vannin Capital to Fund £450 Million Case Against Credit Suisse International

Vannin Capital has stepped up to fund a High Court battle between the owner of the oil and gas project in Azerbaijan and Credit Suisse International (CSI). Private equity-backed Vannin is pumping some of its £100 million litigation fund into the case launched by Dr. Zaur Leshkasheli's against CSI over breach of contract and negligence relating to the sale of Caspian Energy Group, a company with rights to an oil and gas field project. The damages sought by Dr. Leshkasheli add up to more than £450 million. If successful Vannin would take a chunk of that sum.

Nassiri & Jung LLP Announces Lawsuit Aaainst Credit Suisse International, Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Energy Conversion Devices, Inc

Nassiri & Jung LLP announced that a class action has been commenced in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of persons or entities who purchased or otherwise acquired Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. common stock on or after June 18, 2008 (the Class Period). The complaint charges defendants Credit Suisse International and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC with violations of Section 9 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, defendants, through two prospectus supplements filed with the SEC, issued materially false and misleading statements concerning a public offering of 4,714,975 shares of Energy Conversion Devices common stock on June 18, 2008. The common stock prospectus supplement, along with a '3.00% Convertible Senior Notes due 2013' prospectus supplement, disclosed that some investors might take advantage of a share lending agreement to short Energy Conversion Devices common stock as a 'hedge' against their investment in convertible notes. According to the complaint, defendants statements were false and misleading because defendants knew or deliberately disregarded and failed to disclose that the convertible notes were in fact designed to facilitate market manipulation and a net short position by some investors participating in the notes offering. Plaintiff alleges that as a result of these misrepresentations and/or omissions, Energy Conversion Devices common stock traded at artificially-inflated prices during the Class Period. Plaintiff alleges that the manipulative short selling caused the stock price to drop from $72 per share in June 2008 to less than $1 per share in February 2012, when Energy Conversion Devices was finally forced into bankruptcy.
