Ex-CFO Of A Failed Company Charged For Insider Trading

Today, The Smart Investor Feed brings you another morally reprehensible fraud.

Douglas A. Roth has been seized/arrested by the U.S. Securities And Exchange Commission (SEC). Shocking right?

We weren’t expecting this as well, but these scammers are getting smarter by the minute, making it harder for us to identify.

Such swindlers seem to be booming in numbers lately. This case is kind of interesting, why don’t I show you why:

Full Report On Douglas A. Roth

The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged Douglas A. Roth, the former Chief Financial Officer of Aceto Corporation, with insider trading.

According to the SEC's complaint, filed on November 5, 2020, while working as Aceto's CFO, Roth obtained non-public information concerning several negative developments at Aceto, including poor sales and earnings for the quarter ending March 31, 2018, a pending impairment charge, consideration of discontinuing Aceto's dividend, and Aceto's negotiations with its creditors seeking an amendment or waiver of financial covenants that had been amended only months earlier. The complaint alleges that while in possession of this confidential information, and within days of his March 31, 2018 retirement, Roth sold all of the Aceto shares that vested upon his retirement, avoiding losses of more than $305,000.

The SEC's complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, charges Roth, a resident of East Northport, NY, with violations of the antifraud provisions of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and seeks permanent injunctions, civil monetary penalties, and a bar from serving as an officer and director of a public company.

In a parallel action, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York today filed criminal charges against Roth.

Conclusion: Douglas A. Roth Is A Fraud

The report on SEC clearly suggests that Douglas A. Roth never had any intentions to do honest business or provide helpful services. Main intention behind all their actions was to take advantage of the honesty & gullibility of people and scam them. It would be an understatement to call this a mere fraud, this one is a scandal.

If you feel like you are a victim of this scam, then I recommend contacting a law firm and consulting with them about a lawsuit. Companies & firms pay huge reprimands to settle serious lawsuits.
