Hedge Funds Settle Press Release Hacking Claims for $18M

By on Mar 30, 2016 in Press Release | 0 comments

A Moscow-based hedge fund manager, his investment firms and two Paris-based funds have agreed to pay nearly $18 million to resolve a U.S. regulator’s claims that they engaged in insider trading using hacked press releases from newswire services. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission disclosed the deal with David Amaryan and his funds and the separate accord with Guibor SA and Omega 26 Investments Ltd in France in papers filed in federal court in Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday. They were among 43 defendants sued by the SEC since August in connection with what it says was the theft of more than 150,000 press releases from Business Wire, Marketwired and PR Newswire before the corporate news became public. The SEC said the scheme resulted in more than $100 million of illegal profit over a roughly five-year period. Three men have pleaded guilty in related criminal proceedings. Amaryan, a Moscow resident, and investment firms Copperstone Alpha Fund, Copperstone Capital, Ocean Prime Inc. and Intertrade Pacific SA earned $8.1 million through the scheme, while Guibor and Omega 26 made $6.6 million, the SEC said. As part of the settlement, the SEC said Amaryan and his companies agreed to pay $10 million. Guibor and Omega 26, both of which are proprietary trading funds and share an owner, agreed to pay $4.2 million and $3.72 million, respectively. The defendants neither admitted nor denied wrongdoing as part of the settlements. Their lawyers declined comment on Friday. Authorities have said the scheme centered on the theft by Ukraine hackers Oleksandr Ieremenko and Ivan Turchynov of press releases from the three newswire services from February 2010 to August 2015. Traders, including many with ties to Russia, allegedly gave the hackers “shopping lists” of releases they wanted to see in advance, including quarterly results of public companies. Prior SEC settlements in the case include a $4.2 million deal in February with Ukrainian-based Concorde Bermuda Ltd and a $30 million accord in September with Ukrainian-based Jaspen Capital Partners Ltd and its principal, Andriy Supranonok. The traders who have pleaded guilty include Arkadiy Dubovoy, Igor Dubovoy and Alexander Garkusha, all of whom are from Alpharetta, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. The case is SEC v. Dubovoy et al, U.S....

Local moms group calls on Missouri lawmakers to back EPA’s clean air plan – Springfield News

Charlie Norr, right, was joined by members of Moms Clean Air Force on Monday, Mar. 28, 2016 outside of Senator Claire McCaskill’s office in Springfield to deliver a letter in support of America’s Clean Power Plan.(Photo: Andrew Jansen/News-Leader)Buy Photo The local chapter of Moms Clean Air Force organized a rally in Springfield on Monday to urge state and federal lawmakers to support the Clean Power Plan, President Barack Obama’s proposal for curbing air pollution. A group of about 10 people, including Rep. Charlie Norr, D-Springfield, met outside U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s downtown Springfield office to voice their support for the measure, which would reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants. Kay Mills, field coordinator for Moms Clean Air Force, said air pollution is not only bad for the environment but also contributes to public health problems like asthma and heart disease. Specifically, Mills said, the group wants Missouri lawmakers to create a state-level plan to comply with the federal initiative, overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency, despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last month to suspend the plan until a legal challenge is resolved. “We have a chance to create a plan that’s designed by Missourians and is right for Missourians,” Mills said. Springfield Republican Rep. Eric Burlison hopes to push the state in the other direction. He wants Missouri to oppose the president’s plan and has filed legislation that would block the Show-Me State from complying with the federal rules. Burlison said the rules would unfairly hurts states like Missouri that rely heavily on coal for energy production; He argues the rules would cause an increase in utility bills for the state’s residents. “The Supreme Court stepped in and really saved us all,” Burlison said of the high court’s decision to delay implementation of the EPA rules. Burlison said he thinks his bill is of a lesser priority now than it had been before, but could become an important matter again depending on the outcome of legal challenge. That could take some time. The EPA has been forced to halt enforcement of the so-called “Clean Power Plan” until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit decides on the merits of the GOP/industry lawsuit against it. Oral arguments are set for early June. Even if the plan is upheld at the lower court, it could not be implemented...
