Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A., May Recover Investor Losses – SEC Obtains Preliminary Injunction Continuing Freeze of $27 Million in Sales of Longfin Corp. (LFIN)
Longfin Corp. (LFIN) purports to specialize in structured trade finance solutions and physical commodities finance solutions for finance houses and trading platforms. Longfin Corp. (LFIN) claims it offers Blockchain technology solutions for small and medium enterprises, processors, manufacturers, importers, and exporters. The SEC reports that on May 1, 2018, a federal district court in Manhattan granted the Securities and Exchange Commission’s motion for a preliminary injunction, extending until the conclusion of the case the emergency order previously entered by the court freezing more than $27 million in trading proceeds from allegedly illegal distributions and sales of restricted shares of Longfin Corp. stock involving the company, its Chief Executive Officer, Venkata S. Meenavalli, and three affiliated individuals, Andy Altahawi, Dorababu Penumarthi, and Suresh Tammineedi.
According to the SEC’s complaint, Longfin’s CEO and controlling shareholder, Meenavalli, caused the company to issue more than two million unregistered, restricted shares to Altahawi, who was the corporate secretary and a director of Longfin, and tens of thousands of restricted shares to two other affiliated individuals, Penumarthi and Tammineedi. Shortly after Longfin began trading on NASDAQ and announced the acquisition of a purported cryptocurrency business, Altahawi, Penumarthi, and Tammineedi illegally sold large blocks of restricted Longfin shares to the public while the stock price was highly elevated, for profits in excess of $27 million.
