re: ADEC / Eric Dickson sec.gov



May 8, 2012, a number ofmicrocap promoters began touting AEDC across multiple media outlets, including the mass-mailing ofa 16-page newsletter to 1.2 million U.S. residents (the "AEDC Mailer"), along with e-mail blasts and internet website advertising. The AEDC Mailer made grossly exaggerated claims about the likely success ofAEDC' s oil exploration and the

potential value of AEDC shares.

36. For example, the AEDC Mailer contained unsupportable and false claims such as "Just $5,000 in AEDC [could] fetch a fast $110,550!," "AEDC could very well be a Billion dollar company by summer," "AEDC is already sitting on a massive play where just one of their wells is a proven $800 million gusher!" and "we could see shares hit $4.26 fast, and upwards of

$27.63 when all is said and done." The AEDC Mailer also encouraged investors to purchase

AEDC stock through statements such as "Take Action Now!" and recommended that they do so

at a price of under $4 per share. In addition, the AEDC Mailer falsely claimed that the Michigan

wells it invested in were in close proximity to other wells owned and operated by companies

12

including ExxonMobil when in reality, at the time, major oil and gas companies such as ExxonMobil were not the owners ofany oil or gas wells anywhere near the wells that AEDC invested in.

37. According to the AEDC Mailer, Themis Partners paid $1.6 million to a U.S. marketing company to conduct the promotional campaign and "approved for public dissemination" all statements within the document. Unbeknownst to the recipients of the AEDC Mailer, however, was that the Cravens used Themis Partners as a conduit to disguise their funding ofthe ,AEDC Mailer:

a. On March 17, 2012, D. Craven instructed Langold's broker to wire $510,000 from Langold's account to Themis Partners, referring to it as a "payment concerning a market awareness program on [AEDC]." On March 22,2012, Themis Partners used this money to fund its $500,000 wire to the marketing company as down payment for the AEDC Mailer.

b. On March 17, 2012, Arliss International, Inc., the Swiss account for which A. Craven is listed as the "settlor" (i.e., the person who creates the trust identified as the account's beneficial owner) and D. Craven had signatory authority and served as the sole director, wired $204,000 to Themis Partners. On March 28, 2012, Themis Partners wired that $200,000 to the marketing company as the second payment for the AEDC promotional campaign.

c. On May 5, 2012, Montafon's Swiss account, which is beneficially owned by A. Craven, wired $922,500 to Themis Partners. On May 8, 2012, Themis Partners

Securities and Exchange Commission v. Norstra Energy Inc., Glen Landry and Eric Dany, Civil Action No. 15-cv-4751 (S.D.N.Y.)

U.S. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION Litigation Release No. 23290 / June 18, 2015 Securities and Exchange Commission v. Norstra Energy Inc., Glen Landry and Eric Dany, Civil Action No. 15-cv-4751 (S.D.N.Y.) SEC Charges Microcap Oil Company CEO and Stock Promoter with Defrauding Investors The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged a Texas-based oil company and its CEO with defrauding investors about reserve estimates and drilling plans, and charged the author of a stock-picking newsletter for his role in a fraudulent promotional campaign encouraging readers to buy the oil company's penny stock shares.

The SEC alleges that shortly after becoming Norstra Energy's CEO in March 2013, Glen Landry began making false and misleading claims about business prospects on Norstra's website as well as in press releases and SEC filings. Landry and Norstra Energy misled investors about the location of the company's property in order to make the wells appear more promising and twice disclosed an inaccurate date to begin drilling operations to make the potential for oil riches appear imminent.

The SEC's complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan alleges that promotional materials issued by Eric Dany falsely proclaimed that "Norstra Energy could be sitting on top of as much as 8.5 billion barrels of oil!" and said the planned wells had a 99 percent chance of profitability. After the exaggerated statements about its property and prospects caused Norstra Energy's stock price to increase nearly 600 percent in a three-month period, the SEC suspended trading in June 2013.

The SEC's complaint charges Norstra Energy, Landry, and Dany with fraud and seeks final judgments ordering permanent injunctions, return of allegedly ill-gotten gains with interest, and financial penalties. The SEC also seeks to bar Landry from serving as an officer or director of a public company or participating in a penny stock offering. For further information, please see Press Release Number 2015-126 (June 18, 2015).
