Indian-Origin Entrepreneur Under Probe for Alleged Securities Fraud

first_imgThe U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating an Indian-origin entrepreneur for an alleged securities fraud with his company Longfin Corp, a cryptocurrency company. Venkat Meenavalli is Longfin’s founding CEO and a controlling shareholder.The SEC on April 6 froze more than $27 million in trading proceeds from alleged illegal distributions and sales of restricted shares of Longfin Corp., stock which involved the company, its CEO, and three other affiliated people, the SEC said in a statement.The SEC claims that soon after Longfin began trading on Nasdaq and announced the acquisition of a cryptocurrency business, its stock prices rose dramatically. The market capitalization of the company exceeded $3 billion. The company has now been suspended from trading on the Nasdaq Stock exchange.According to the complaint, a trio — Amro Izzelden “Andy” Altahawi, Dorababu Penumarthi, and Suresh Tammineedi — illegally sold large blocks of their restricted Longfin shares to the public while the stock price was highly elevated. Through their sales, Altahawi, Penumarthi, and Tammineedi collectively gained a profit of more than $27 million.Meenavalli is said to have made the company issue more than two million unregistered, restricted shares to Altahawi, who was the corporate secretary and a director of Longfin. The SEC has charged Longfin, Meenavalli, Altahawi, Penumarthi, and Tammineedi for violating a section of the Securities Act, the statement said.Many of the restricted shares were issued to two of his associates — Penumarthi and Tammineedi — who were allegedly acting as nominees for Meenavalli. “The successive sales of those restricted shares violated federal securities laws that restrict trading in unregistered shares distributed to company affiliates.“We acted quickly to prevent more than $27 million in alleged illicit trading profits from being transferred out of the country,” Robert Cohen, the chief of the SEC Enforcement Division’s Cyber Unit, said. “Preventing defendants from transferring this money offshore will ensure that these funds remain available as the case continues.”Meenavalli had earlier said that short sellers were pulling down the price of the company, CNBC reported. “I’m going to write to SEC and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) because of the shorts,” Meenavalli was quoted as saying by CNBC. “We got information, we have a special investigation. According to us there are 28 billion shares shorted of $1.4 billion dollars bet against me,” he added.The sale of securities that are not owned by the sellers or securities borrowed by the sellers is known as short selling. They try to make profit by believing that the price of a security will decline and that will enable it to be bought back at a lower price so they can make a profit.Meenavalli said that that the trading of the shares of Longfin Corp was stopped because of a delay in filing its Form-10-Q — a company’s performance report to be submitted quarterly by all public companies to the SEC — for the third quarter. “There were no criminal charges slapped on the company and that the SEC is put a temporary freeze on assets as a civil case,” Meenavalli said, ET Tech reported.

‘Even CR7 needs to be protected from head injury’

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 10-year-old girl playing in the weekends or whether it’s Cristiano Ronaldo. If a player suffers a head injury, they need to be protected.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A.

I knew about the danger to my back, and my ankle and my knee, but I didn’t know the danger that I might not be able to function as the same person as I have been.'”I hope that it will get a lot of attention in the UK and Ireland and probably worldwide because of Shearer’s standing. Unfortunately the FA aren’t the most progressive. This would be a good area for them to not hamstring themselves with bureaucracy and internal protocol.”FIFA also have to treat this with real seriousness. They need to demonstrate this with their actions. I certainly hope at the next World Cup, we’ll see a different attitude towards these injuries than we did at the last World Cup, which was disgraceful.”Kevin Payne - Toronto FCPayne would like FIFA and the FA to follow the lead of U.S. Club Soccer, where they have implemented a program called Players Health, which is a complete database of players’ injury and medical history to make the game more responsible for the health of everyone involved at every level from amateur to professional and from children to adults.”U.S. Club Soccer as a governing body is taking this very seriously. A number of states are requiring an exchange of information that’s documented with a signature between parents and the youth clubs about potential danger of head injury. There certainly is abundance of caution now when kids do incur any type of head injury. There’s an attempt to treat this with the seriousness it deserves.”We are a partnered with Player’s Health, which creates a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliant, digital store of a player’s information which allows the parent and the club to communicate with the tool. Whether it’s an ankle injury or a head injury, the parent or medical professional can assess when the player is able to return to play. That makes it a lot easier for the club to say ‘until we have the clearance, you’re not allowed to play’.”Alan Shearer: Dementia, Football And Me airs at 22.30 GMT on Sunday, November 12 on BBC One and the BBC Sport Website.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Lampard delighted with Chelsea academy after Grimsby victoryby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFrank Lampard was delighted with Chelsea’s 7-1 win over Grimsby Town to book their place in the Carabao Cup fourth-round.Academy graduates Reece James, Marc Guehi and Billy Gilmour all started, while back-up Michy Batshuayi took his chance by scoring a double.Lampard said: “It was pleasing on a lot of levels. It was not complete. “But I’m pleased some players who have not been playing so many minutes played, some debuts, and the young lads who came on improved the team which was nice. It’s nice to get that first home win.”I thought Gilmour ran the game from midfield, and Guehi was solid. They’ve been outstanding this year.”And the young subs showed how comfortable they are on the ball. Now the hard work starts to get in the team regularly.”It says a lot about the academy, and nights like this give the opportunity to mix the team up and give them a chance, it gives good recognition to the academy.” last_img read more

Canada will not double its defence budget despite calls from Trump Trudeau

first_imgRIGA, Latvia – Canada has no plans to double the amount of money it spends on its military, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday as he all but shrugged off Donald Trump’s persistent demand that America’s fellow NATO allies start spending two per cent of their GDP on defence.That two per cent target, agreed to in 2014 at the NATO summit in Wales, is just one of many ways to gauge a country’s commitment to the military alliance, Trudeau said on the eve of the summit’s 2018 edition in Brussels, where he’ll once again come face to face with the U.S. president.“I think the two per cent metric is an easy shorthand … it is a very specific and, to a certain extent, limited tool,” said Trudeau, who met Tuesday with Canadian soldiers taking part in a NATO mission in Latvia.Canada does have a plan to increase its defence spending over the next 10 years, he stressed — a plan that his government’s own projections show will only reach 1.4 per cent of GDP by 2024.But any increases in military spending will not come as a result of pressure to do so from “people talking about a two per cent goal,” he said when asked about Trump, but rather because of a desire to live up to the country’s commitments to its military allies around the world.The prime minister’s comments came on the eve of what many expect will be one of the most contentious meetings between NATO leaders in the alliance’s 69-year history, with Trump having put allies on notice that they need to pony up on defence — or else.A new report released by NATO ahead of the summit predicted Canada would spend 1.23 per cent of its GDP on defence this year — less, it turns out, than last year’s level of 1.36 per cent, leaving Canada ranked 18th out of the alliance’s 29 members.The decline is largely the result of two one-time expenses last year: a retroactive pay increase for service members that was included in the Liberal government’s defence policy, and a $1.8-billion payment into the account that provides pensions for Forces members and their dependents.“Many countries in NATO, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of 2 per cent (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made,” Trump tweeted before taking wing to Brussels.“Will they reimburse the U.S.?”Canada has been squarely in the American president’s sights of late, and the NATO spending issue has proven no exception. He wrote Trudeau ahead of the summit expressing “growing frustration” with the fact the two per cent target is still not being met by the majority of alliance nations.And while Trudeau acknowledged the target as a legitimate way of measuring the commitment of alliance members, he said he considers tangible and consistent resources and leadership, which Canada continues to demonstrate, to be more important.“I think it’s an important metric, amongst many others, to gauge how countries are doing in terms of contributors to NATO,” Trudeau said of the two-per-cent benchmark.Asked directly whether Canada plans to meet the two per cent target, Trudeau said simply that there are no plans to double Canada’s defence budget, which currently stands at around $20 billion a year.“Ultimately, the more important metrics are always, ‘Are countries stepping up consistently with the capacities that NATO needs? Are we leading in different opportunities? Are we contributing the kinds of resources and demonstrating the kind of commitment to the alliance that always needs to be there?’”His message, of course, is that in Canada’s case, the answer is yes. The visit to Latvia was aimed at driving that message home, with confirmation that Canadian troops would continue to lead the NATO battle group through 2023. The government is also adding about 80 more soldiers, bringing the total to around 530.Tuesday was spent paying homage to Latvia’s own military efforts — laying flowers at war memorials, inspecting military vehicles at the Adazi military camp outside Riga, and engaging in conversation with the youthful soldiers from numerous countries that make up the NATO battle group.He was casual and familiar with the troops, joking around at a spaghetti dinner and admiring the armoured vehicles and equipment they had laid out to showcase for him.“We’re at a time where the challenges on our global stage — to democracies, to the principles, to the values, to the rule of law that has kept Europe and much of the world at peace for the last 75 years — is now under a certain amount of strain and stress,” Trudeau told the military gathering.“It becomes extremely important not just to stand and show that we are ready to fight for our values and demonstrate that strength of convictions…. it is also really important that we do so not as individual nations, but as a collective.”NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg applauded Canada and European allies Tuesday for having reversed years of cuts by investing more in defence and contributing more troops and equipment to collective security — even as he pushed back against suggestions the alliance was in trouble.“My message is that we are actually now stepping up,” Stoltenberg said.“European allies are stepping up. Canada is stepping up. And we’re also doing more together, North America — the United States, Canada — and Europe. And I’m absolutely certain that this summit will show that we are able to deliver on security, on defence despite the disagreements we see on trade and other issues.”At the same time, the NATO chief said more needs to be done, and that Canada and its European allies “should not increase defence spending to please the United States,” but because meeting the two per cent target is important for their own security and defence.“That’s the reason why they agreed to invest more in defence back in 2014,” Stoltenberg said. “The reason to invest is not to please the United States. The reason to invest more in defence is because it’s needed because we live in a more unpredictable world.”— with reporting from Lee Berthiaume in Ottawa.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version said defence spending in Canada as a percentage of GDP was higher in 2018 than in 2017.last_img read more

Working together nations can tackle todays major challenges – Ban

5 November 2009No country, however, powerful, can tackle alone the multiple challenges facing the world, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, stressing the need to work together on issues such as climate change, the economic crisis and global peace and security. “We are all in this together. And we must act together,” Mr. Ban said in his remarks to the Hellenic Parliament, becoming the first UN Secretary-General to address the body.“That is why I say it is time for renewed multilateralism – a multilateralism that delivers for real people in real time,” he added. Mr. Ban, who wrapped up his two-day visit to Athens today, highlighted climate change as one area where countries can work together to make a difference. “These are crucial days,” he noted, with only four weeks to go until the climate change conference in Copenhagen, where countries are expected to wrap up talks on an ambitious new agreement to tackle global warming.“We must have a global agreement – an agreement which is comprehensive, balanced, equitable and binding,” he stated. Likewise, all members of the international community should work together to spread economic opportunity more widely, he said, noting that the “clock is ticking” on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the set of global anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline.In addition, united action can help strengthen global peace and security, including in the area of disarmament, as well as successfully address long-standing regional concerns.In this regard, Mr. Ban reiterated that he is “cautiously optimistic” about prospects for a settlement in Cyprus, noting the steady progress being made in UN-backed talks between Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders aimed at unifying the Mediterranean island.He said he was also encouraged by the Greek Government’s clear endorsement of a continuing role for the UN in the negotiations with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia in the dispute over the latter’s name.“Now is the time for transformational change on all of these big issues,” said the Secretary-General. “This is our chance. Now is our time to act.” read more

UN blue helmets show solidarity with fallen Haitian police officers

25 February 2010Forty days after a massive earthquake struck Haiti, nearly 200 police officers serving with the United Nations peacekeeping mission (MINUSTAH) took part in a special tribute to their fallen colleagues serving with the national force. Forty days after a massive earthquake struck Haiti, nearly 200 police officers serving with the United Nations peacekeeping mission (MINUSTAH) took part in a special tribute to their fallen colleagues serving with the national force. The Haitian National Police (HNP) had just over 8,000 active officers at the time of the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck on 12 January, claiming the lives of 75 of them and injuring more than 250 others. Nearly 80 officers are still missing. A memorial service was held last Sunday at the site of Delmas 33 Police Station in the hardest-hit city, the capital, Port-au-Prince, which was reduced to rubble by the quake. That location alone lost 10 officers, as well as one UN Police (UNPOL) officer. The cries of sobbing mothers, spouses and children of the HNP who were being honoured could be heard throughout the ceremony, held under a large white tent. “Although they were grieving their colleagues and relatives, HNP officers were first to assist their country to cope with the disaster,” said Mario Anderson, the force’s Director-General. “They continued to work in open air, under the shadows of the trees or under improvised shelters to serve people.” To date, more than 90 per cent of HNP officers are back on duty. For its part, UNPOL, which sprang into action to assist the HNP carry out patrols on the streets of Port-au-Prince, lost 18 officers, with another 16 having been injured. UNPOL members serving in Haiti are mandated to help monitor, restructure and reform the HNP, and its main tasks currently are ensuring public safety and facilitating the distribution of urgently-needed humanitarian aid. Despite the scale of the disaster in Haiti, which was already the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation before the earthquake, its police force will not be rebuilding from scratch, Acting UN Police Adviser Ann-Marie Orler told the UN News Centre earlier this month. “What was destroyed was equipment,” not human capital, she stressed, pointing out how this was demonstrated by the speed at which patrols resumed after the disaster. The UN is also working closely with the Haitian Government to ensure that the justice system – with courts, prisons and other institutions having sustained severe damage – is built back stronger. read more

Scammer bilks company out of 236G

An employee unwittingly sent a large amount of money out the door, costing a local business nearly $250,000.April 16, an employee in the accounting department received an email from someone claiming to be the CEO of a company supplier in the United States.The email asked for immediate payment of an outstanding invoice. A total of $236,000 was transferred. When that happened, the local firm received a second email from the same source asking for payment of another invoice.At this point, the local employee became suspicious and brought the matter to the attention of a supervisor. An in-house investigation determined that the supplier’s email had been hacked and used to divert funds.“The ‘CEO scam’ starts when a criminal poses as the company’s president or owner using a fake or hacked email account,” Const. Ed Sanchuk, spokesperson for the Norfolk OPP, said Friday in a news release.“The ‘owner’ writes directly to an employee that is responsible for arranging payments or transfers of funds to suppliers. The invoice which was originally sent is, in fact, a fake. It will look just like the owner’s regular email, sent directly to someone responsible for issuing payment, making that person believe they have received a legitimate request to pay an invoice.”Norfolk OPP offer the following tips to avoid being scammed in this manner:Educate employees about this scam and tell them to be skeptical of urgent or suspicious requests made by email. Encourage employees to always communicate with managers if they feel a request seems unusual or suspicious. If anyone has any doubts about an email that appears to be from someone at your company, immediately contact that person by phone before responding. Have policies and procedures in place requiring more than one person to approve the transfer of funds. Watch what you share on-line. This information can be used to gain information about you. That in turn can be used to target your company. Anyone with information regarding this scam is encouraged to contact the Norfolk OPP at 1-888-310-1122.Anonymous tips can also be left at Crime Stoppers of Haldimand and Norfolk at 1-800-222-8477. Callers to Crime Stoppers who help solve a crime are eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Skype interdit en Chine

Le People’s Daily Online annonce en effet que la Chine s’apprêtait à bannir les réseaux de téléphonie IP, c’est-à-dire sur le Net, qui n’appartiennent pas aux deux opérateurs nationaux, China Telecom et China Unicom. Ce qui signifie que le célèbre réseau Skype n’aura plus le droit de cité en Chine.C’est le ministère de l’Industrie qui l’a annoncé, justifiant cette décision par la volonté de garder le monopole des deux opérateurs téléphoniques chinois. Aucune date n’a toutefois été divulguée quant à l’application d’un tel décret. En plus de Skype, le réseau concurrent UUCall est en tout cas également visé par cette loi. Une loi qui irrite profondément Kan Kaili, un professeur à l’Université des Postes et des Télécommunications de Pékin : “C’est ridicule.

HDFC masala bonds list on London Stock Exchange Deepak Parekh says sovereign

first_imgHousing Development Finance Corporation (HDFC) created history on Monday when masala bonds raised by the Indian mortgage lender were listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The bonds received a good response, with bids worth Rs. 8,700 crore on debut.HDFC Chairman Deepak Parekh and CEO Keki Mistry were present on the historic day at the LSE.Masala bonds are rupee-dominated bonds raised outside India. HDFC was the first Indian company to do so when it raised Rs. 3,000 crore in masala bonds at a coupon rate of 7.875 percent per annum. The bonds have a tenor of three years and one month. At an issue price of Rs. 99.24 per bond of the par value, the effective yield on the bonds is 8.33 percent per annum. The success of the masala bond issue has generated phenomenal hunger among global sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) for such debt offerings in the future. “We are getting calls from SWFs around the world, saying ‘the next 20 billion, just give it to us'”, Parekh told Reuters.The success of the maiden masala bond issue by an Indian company would set a similar trend among other Indian firms, notwithstanding the 5 percent tax deduction at source (TDS) clause (also called withholding tax) that can raise the cost of borrowing for the issuer.The bonds won’t be traded on Indian stock exchanges.The maiden masala bond issue was lapped up by many foreign investors, making HDFC express confidence over the successful placement of the debt programme.”This is a milestone transaction for HDFC. We have successfully achieved our objective of attracting a global pool of capital to further diversify our borrowing profile. The positive investors response towards this issuance reinforces the blue-chip positioning of HDFC and establishes a significant landmark for Indian companies,” Parekh had said in a regulatory filing on July 14 to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).From an investor profile perspective, 86 percent of the final allottees were Asian and European investors. While 18 percent of the investors were banks, the rest were institutional investors, HDFC had said in a statement.On Tuesday, HDFC shares were trading at Rs. 1,338.45 apiece on the BSE at around 12.46 p.m., down 2.62 percent from their previous close. HDFC Bank shares were flat at Rs. 1241.70 apiece.The Sensex was trading about 50 points higher at 28,024.last_img read more

first_img– / 18 Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith (89) is stopped by Arizona Cardinals free safety Tyrann Mathieu (32) during the second half of an NFL football game, Monday, Oct. 26, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) 0 Comments   Share   Look at what happened to the Cardinals in the postseason without Tyrann Mathieu on the field. The Packers, with the legendary pass-catching triumvirate of Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Richard Rodgers tore Arizona apart. Ditto Corey Brown and Ted Ginn Jr. in the NFC Title Game.No DB since Charles Woodson in Green Bay has been able to be used at corner, safety and in the slot, while also blitzing off the edge and making free-roaming plays the way the Honey Badger did in 2015.And finally, former NFL running back LaDainian Tomlinson gave his thoughts, and it starts with him believing Mathieu’s presence in Arizona should be recognized.Mathieu played around 98 percent of Arizona’s defensive snaps before he went down with the knee injury in Week 15. That’s like a quarterback figure; most defensive players don’t do that. His impact on the Cardinals’ defense is something you really can’t quantify.It has been reported the Cardinals are planning to approach the 23-year-old Mathieu, who was a third-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, about signing a long-term contract extension this offseason, which is something the defensive back has said is “very encouraging.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Tyrann Mathieu had a banner 2015 season for the Arizona Cardinals, though unfortunately it got cut short by a torn ACL in a Week 15 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.However, what the third-year pro accomplished in 14 games — 89 total tackles, five interceptions, one sack — and the way in which he did it impressed many throughout the NFL to the point where he was being mentioned as a candidate for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The winner of the award will be announced Saturday, and while Mathieu is not likely to hear his name called, that does not mean there are not people who believe he deserves the honor.Over at NFL.com, a host of panelists was asked to make their pick for the DPOY Award, and while Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt earned the most votes, it was the Cardinals’ safety who came in second with four.Nate Burleson, who played wide receiver in the NFL, wrote that Mathieu is the league’s Swiss Army Knife.Despite being an undersized defensive back, Tyrann Mathieu proved to be the most versatile defensive player in the league this year. He’s able to guard everything, from wideouts to tight ends to running backs, and he’s one of the best tacklers in the NFL.It’s very unfortunate his season prematurely ended in Week 15, but don’t forget about the spectacular campaign he already had enjoyed.Dave Dameshek wrote that Mathieu’s play reminds him of greats Troy Polamalo and Ed Reed.Play for play, Aaron Donald is the most disruptive interior D-lineman I can recall seeing since Steve Emtman was a Washington Husky, but Tyrann Mathieu’s instinctive freelancing recalls past Def Players of the Year Troy Polamalu and Ed Reed — and the Honey Badger had a similar impact on one of the league’s best teams.Elliot Harrison believes Mathieu’s versatility is akin to Charles Woodson when he was at the height of his powers.
