Equal Earth Inc. – SEC Files Complaint | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
According to the SEC Allegations:
From 2013 to 2015, Equal Earth, Inc. (“Equal Earth”), its CEO, Andrew Duggan, and its COO, Mark Hamade defrauded hundreds of investors who had invested millions of dollars in their company. Equal Earth claimed it was a green energy development company that would acquire and build solar projects. From at least October 2013 to September 2015, Equal Earth raised almost $5.6 million from at least 266 investors.
When soliciting those investors, Duggan and Hamade represented that their company had significant historical revenues, it had acquired multiple companies that could generate more future revenue, and had projects with significant power generation capacity, all making it seem as if it was a fast-growing company that would soon go public.
None of that was true. Equal Earth was hardly growing. In fact, it had not acquired most of the companies it said it had. And instead of the $79 million in 2013 revenue it claimed it had earned, its revenues that year were only about $684,000. Also, in the few instances where Equal Earth had actually acquired a company, the acquired company had the right to unwind the deal if Equal Earth did not go public by a specific date.
To make matters worse, while perpetrating these lies, Duggan sold his own Equal Earth stock to unsuspecting investors for profits of about $617,690. He also misappropriated at least $40,000 of investor money.
