SEC v. Headstart Advisers Limited

U.S. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION
Litigation Release No. 20524 / April 10, 2008
SEC v. Headstart Advisers Limited, 08 CV 3484 (DAB) (SDNY)
Commission Files Fraud Charges Against United Kingdom-Based Hedge Fund Adviser for Defrauding United States Mutual Funds Through Late Trading and Deceptive Market Timing
The Securities and Exchange Commission today filed a civil action in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against United Kingdom-based hedge fund adviser Headstart Advisers Limited (HAL) and its "Chief Investment Adviser," Najy N. Nasser. The complaint alleges that HAL and Nasser orchestrated a scheme to defraud mutual funds in the United States and their shareholders through late trading and deceptive market timing. HAL's advisory client, Headstart Fund Ltd., obtained approximately $198 million in illicit profits through this scheme, at the expense of U.S. mutual funds and their shareholders. The Commission named the Headstart Fund as a relief defendant.

The Commission's complaint names the following defendants/relief defendant:

HAL is an investment adviser based in London, England. During the relevant period, HAL served as the investment adviser to Headstart Fund. HAL was formerly known as Folkes Asset Management Ltd.

Nasser, age 39, is a resident of the Principality of Monaco. Nasser joined HAL in 1997 and has served as HAL's Chief Investment Adviser. Nasser is currently HAL's sole director. Nasser is a graduate of the London School of Economics with a master's degree in accounting and finance.

Headstart Fund was incorporated in the Bahamas in December 2001 as an open-ended company with limited liability.
The Commission's complaint alleges the following. From approximately September 1998 through September 2003, HAL actively traded U.S. mutual funds through Headstart Fund's accounts at numerous broker-dealers in the United States. HAL routinely engaged in late trading of U.S. mutual funds. HAL placed orders on behalf of its client, the Headstart Fund, to buy, redeem, or exchange mutual fund shares after the 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) market close while still receiving the current day's mutual fund price. This illegal practice enabled Headstart Fund to profit — at the expense of other shareholders in the U.S. mutual funds — from market events that occurred after 4:00 p.m. ET, but that were not reflected in the price that Headstart Fund paid for the mutual fund shares.

HAL and Nasser also used deceptive techniques to market time U.S. mutual funds. For example, HAL opened numerous accounts on behalf of Headstart Fund at various U.S. broker-dealers, and split Headstart Fund trades among multiple accounts to keep the size of the trades below a certain threshold that mutual funds monitored in order to conceal the extent of Headstart Fund's trading from U.S. mutual fund companies. HAL also used multiple accounts so that when a U.S. mutual fund company detected Headstart Fund's market timing and informed the U.S. broker-dealers through whom the trades had been placed to stop, HAL would simply transfer funds to a new brokerage account of which the U.S. mutual fund company was not yet aware, and then resume market timing within the same U.S. mutual fund company.

HAL, Nasser, and Headstart Fund benefited from this late trading and deceptive market timing at the expense of other shareholders in the U.S. mutual funds. Headstart Fund earned illicit profits of approximately $198 million from its late trading and deceptive market timing of U.S. mutual funds. HAL and Nasser obtained ill-gotten gains from the late trading and deceptive market timing scheme through, among other things, their receipt of performance and management fees for managing the Headstart Fund.

As a result of this conduct, HAL and Nasser violated Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, and violated, or aided and abetted violations of, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and Rule 10b-5. The complaint seeks as relief a final judgment: (i) permanently enjoining HAL and Nasser; (ii) ordering HAL, Nasser, and the Headstart Fund to disgorge their ill-gotten gains and to pay prejudgment interest; and (iii) imposing civil money penalties against HAL and Nasser.

___________
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

From September 30, 2004 through March 30, 2005 Unico issued convertible

debentures ("Debentures") aggregating approximately $625,000 to Reef Holding,

Ltd. and approximately $467,500 to Kentan Limited Corp. that were unpaid, and in

default, as of February 9, 2006. The holders of the convertible debentures had

assigned portions of the Debentures to Blue Marble Investments, Outboard

Investments, Umbrella Holdings and Yanzu, Inc. Because Unico, Incorporated

failed to pay the Debentures when due, a total of ten (10) lawsuits were filed

by these Debenture holders against Unico, Incorporated in the Twelfth Circuit

(State) Court in Florida (Case Nos. 2006-CA-003385-NC, 2006-CA-001230-NC, 2006-

CA-001825-NC, 2006-CA-003067-NC, 2006-CA-001229-NC, 2006-CA-002111-NC, 2006-CA-

002597-NC, 2006-CA-003068-NC, 2006-CA-004264-NC and 2006-CA-003851-NC).

The Debentures provided that the principal amount and accrued interest were

convertible, at the option of the holders of the Debentures, into Unico's common

stock at a price per share equal to 50% of the closing bid price of Unico's

common stock as quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board on the immediately preceding

trading day prior to the notice of conversion.

Unico agreed to settle each action by issuing shares of its common stock to the

plaintiffs using a valuation of approximately 14% to 20% of the then existing bid

price of Unico, Incorporated common stock. These shares were issued pursuant to

Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, after a hearing with

notice to, and an opportunity to be heard from, interested parties, as to the

fairness of each transaction, by a state court in Florida which specifically

determined, prior to declaring that the transactions were exempt under Section

3(a)(10), that the transactions were fair to the interested parties.

From February 9, 2006 until May 12, 2006, in connection with the exercise of

conversion rights by the holders of the Debentures and pursuant to the

litigation settlements, Unico issued an aggregate of 4,400,668,554 shares of its

common stock.

As a result of the foregoing events, shares of Unico's common stock were issued

to one or more of the Debenture holders on the following dates and in the

following amounts:

1. February 9, 2006 - 173,835,653 shares

2. March 2, 2006 - 325,804,830 shares

3. March 9, 2006 - 371,875,000 shares

4. March 23, 2006 - 526,704,636 shares

5. April 6, 2006 - 566,195,754 shares

6. April 14, 2006 - 599,041,095 shares

7. April 27, 2006 - 1,209,091,038 shares

8. May 11, 2006 - 628,120,548 shares

There were no underwriters involved in any of the stock issuances described

above, and there were no underwriting discounts or commissions paid. The stock

in each transaction was issued pursuant to Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities

Act of 1933 as "securities issued in exchange for one or more bona vide

outstanding securities, claims or property interests . . . where the terms and

conditions of such issuance and exchange are approved, after a hearing upon the

fairness of such terms and conditions . . . ."

As of the date of this report, there are now 4,899,096,450 shares of Unico's

common stock issued and outstanding.

SIGNATURES

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the

Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the

undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

Javelin Play: Focus GRXI
Every once and a while a company will release a PR that leaves folks scratching their heads thinking “What the…..” Today was just one of those days and the company was none other than GTREX Capital, Inc. (GRXI)
Apparently, the CEO – Stephen R. Peacock - is looking for acquisitions for its subsidiary, Global Travel Exchange. Now get ready for this….By attending an environmental conference in the Turks and Caicos Islands! The conference is called, "Fostering a Green Culture in Small Island Nations,"
Now many of you are probably having a hard time trying to link up what a travel technology executive is doing attending an environmental conference. You should not feel alone, From reading the stock message board, nobody else seemed to get it either.
So is Mr. Peacock going SCUBA diving and deep sea fishing at an exotic island resort on the backs of GRXI shareholders? Most likely not. My guess is that there is some additional business included and the environmental conference is a secondary issue. In fact, it appears to be more like cover.
So what up? Here is my take. After Mr. Peacock’s company, Javelin Advisory Group got caught up in the “free trading share” BDC disaster, they had been looking for another loophole in the law. Apparently they found one, in Section 3(a)10 of the securities law.
Utilizing this loophole, Javelin Advisory Group companies have been issuing unregistered shares in lawsuit type settlements in the State of Florida, 12th Circuit courtroom in sunny Sarasota.
Starting in the fourth quarter of 2006, all of the Javelin Advisory affiliated companies have had claims filed against them for defaulted debt, which is settled at around 1/5 of market price on the defaulted debt. The plaintiff? In all cases it was Sequoia International.
In a true case of penny stock genius, nobody seemed to have the foresight to realize that it might look slightly strange if all the companies you were involved in were getting sued by the same entity.
Worse, a lawsuit posted by an investor on a stock message board exposed Shane Traveller signing as the representative of this Sequoia entity. This same signature also appeared on a Javelin managed company FCCN, this time as the CEO of Sequoia International.
So who is Shane Traveller? Shane is Steve Peacock’s long time partner in Javelin Advisory Group, who at least by printed report, had left Javelin at around mid year 2006. Shane currently resides as the interim CFO for FCCN.
So if the real reason for zipping off at the last minute to Turks and Caicos is not primarily related to the travel industry, what could be the other business being attended to? Here is a little tidbit. Sequoia is listed as having an address in the Turks and Caicos. So are numerous other entities that have used this same exclusion to obtain unregistered shares with Javelin Advisory Group related companies.
My guess is that other entities will start appearing utilizing the same legal exclusion other than Sequoia International with Javelin involved companies in the near future.
Here are the lawsuit lists against mostly Javelin involved companies along with today’s press release appended below.

Obviously didn't stop him from being involved in all those other companies (Steve Peacock/Javelin/BEYER) related companies). I wonder if this was about the time he changed the address for Sequoia International? It used to be in the US and changed to the TURKS and CAICOS Islands.

OVERSTOCK FACES SUIT
Bloomberg

April 11, 2008 -- Overstock.com Inc., the Internet seller of discounted brand-name goods, and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Byrne will be sued for libel by Gradient Analytics Inc., the research firm said.
Gradient was defamed by Overstock.com and Byrne in retaliation for research that criticized the retailer's financial performance, Gradient said in an e-mailed statement.

Gradient will file the complaint when it gets final permission to do so from a California state court judge in San Francisco, spokeswoman Karen Hinton said yesterday in a voicemail message. Earlier yesterday, Hinton said the suit had been filed.

"These bullies have spent two and a half years hiding in the locker room to avoid having to back up their words," Byrne said yesterday in an e-mail. "Now that they've been dragged by their heels kicking and screaming into the ring, they bounce up and begin pounding their chests."

Overstock.com fell $1.31, or 9.3 percent, to close at $12.81.

Accused fraudster banned from trading
canada.com
Chris Purdy, The StarPhoenix
Published: Friday, April 11, 2008
Any stock market bans issued out of a pending U.S. securities trial cannot be imposed across the border on alleged fraudster Urban Casavant.

But a previous order issued by the Saskatchewan Financial Services Commission (SFSC) remains in effect, banning the Prince Albert man from dealing securities in the province.

An order preventing Casavant's former diamond mining company, CMKM Diamonds Inc., from selling shares is also in place in Manitoba.

The Alberta Securities Commission held a hearing Wednesday seeking a reciprocal order. That decision is pending.

Casavant, a 51-year-old former prison guard and U-haul franchise owner in Prince Albert, was among 11 people charged earlier this week with fraud and other offences by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The SEC alleges the group conspired to illegally sell billions of shares of unregistered CMKM stock, stealing at least $64 million from 40,000 investors around the world between 2003 and 2005.

The company claimed to hold mineral rights in the Fort a la Corne region east of Prince Albert and sent out phony media releases about its discoveries.

Casavant, running the scheme out a home in Las Vegas, allegedly pocketed $31.5 million and blew most of the money on a lavish lifestyle that included high-roller gambling at casinos.

He resigned from the company in 2007 and returned to Canada.

"He's totally wrongly accused," Casavant's brother Victor said from his home in Vegreville, Alta. on Thursday.

He refused to comment further on the case.

Victor Casavant was sanctioned in Alberta in 1995 for improperly distributing securities from his company Striker Minerals Ltd. He returned $60,000 to one shareholder and paid a $1,000 fine.

The SEC and SFSC both issued temporary cease-trade ordered against Casavant and CMKM in 2004. The following year, Saskatchewan extended its order indefinitely and the SEC issued a final order de-registering the company's stock.

The current SEC charges relate to a civil case seeking fines and the return of what's left of the stolen investment money.

The SEC is also seeking an order preventing Casavant from acting as an officer or director of any public company in the U.S.

Herbalife Shares Drop on Fraud Claims
Herbalife Shares Fall After Fraud Discovery Institute Alleges Fraud
April 11, 2008: 03:24 PM EST

NEW YORK (Associated Press) - Shares of Herbalife Ltd., which sells nutritional supplements and weight-loss products, dropped Friday after a San Diego-based investigator leveled allegations of fraud against the company.

Shares fell $3.51, or 7.2 percent, to $45.09 in afternoon trading.

Barry Minkow, who now runs the Fraud Discovery Institute after serving a sentence for fraud at his own former company ZZZZ Best Co., released a list of "top 10 red flags for fraud" at Herbalife. The "flags" include senior managers allegedly dumping stock, high supervisor turnover and saturation in the market.

In the report on his Web site, Minkow said he reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission this month that he was shorting the stock to finance his investigation of Herbalife in China and produce You Tube videos of "Herbalife victims." By shorting the stock, Minkow bet the price would decline.

The Institute has accused the company of fraud before, saying Herbalife was operating a pyramid scheme and illegally recruiting distributors in mainland China.

Herbalife spokesman George Fischer said the company stands by the statement it released in November when Minkow made his initial accusation. The statement states "we have confidence in our direct-selling business model, our integrity and transparency as a NYSE-listed company and the fundamentals of our business."

Although investors appeared to be listening to the latest round of allegations Friday, Goldman Sachs analyst Simeon Gutman said in a note to investors he does not view the accusations as "troubling."

He said Herbalife discloses its supervisor turnover rate every year and nearly all insider selling was done with pre-planned 10b5-1 trading plans. Those plans allow a company insider to set up a program in advance for buying or selling shares and proceed with them even if he or she comes into possession of material nonpublic information.

Gutman said he was surprised by the share price drop but added the company's upcoming first quarter earnings report may give investors a reason to forget the allegations.

"In our view, the most effective refutation to any allegation is continued strong operating results," Gutman said.

The analyst said he expects the company to report earnings higher than investors expect
