Energy Sources International Corporation and Xact Holdings Corporation – SEC Files Complaint | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
According to the SEC Complaint:
This matter involves an offering fraud orchestrated by Donald G. Blakstad in which Donald Blakstad raised approximately $3.544 million from at least 14 investors through the fraudulent offer and sale of securities in three companies he owned and controlled. Instead of investing as promised, Blakstad used the majority of investor proceeds for his personal benefit, including spending funds on personal entertainment, the purchase of a stake in a nightclub, the purchase of a luxury automobile, and to fund illicit securities trading.
Between at least July 2015 and May 2019, Blakstad raised funds through (1) Midcontinental Petroleum, Inc. (“Midcontinental”), a purported oil, gas, and alternative energy resources company; (2) ESI, a purported cryptocurrency mining operation; and (3) Xact Holdings, a company formed to acquire a Canadian manufacturer of industrial vehicle components (“Canadian Company”).
Defendants induced investors to purchase securities in these companies by making a number of materially false and misleading statements and omissions concerning the use of investor proceeds and the business operations of Midcontinental.
With respect to Midcontinental, Donald Blakstad told investors that their money would be used to fund start-up and other costs related to oil, gas, and alternative energy exploration, including the acquisition of land leases and other equipment needed for energy exploration, extraction, and storage. In connection with ESI, Donald Blakstad and ESI told investors that their funds would be used to purchase equipment and cover “start-up costs” for ESI’s purported cryptocurrency mining operations. And for Xact Holdings, Donald Blakstad and Xact Holdings told investors that their funds would be used to acquire Canadian Company and to lease facilities in Houston, Texas. Each of these representations was false.
Rather than using the investor funds as stated, Donald Blakstad treated the funds in the company bank accounts as his own personal piggybank.
