The filed Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that:
- Defendants were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme to artificially inflate MGT Capital’s stock price;
- this illicit scheme caused MGT Capital to make false and misleading statements, which would result in governmental scrutiny, including from the SEC;
- certain of the scheme Defendants exercised control over MGT Capital and its management; and
- consequently, the illicit scheme would ultimately cause MGT Capital’s stock to become delisted from NYSE MKT
On September 7, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filed a lawsuit against a former officer of MGT as well as other individuals and corporations, alleging violations of the federal securities laws. The SEC complaint alleges that defendants were participants in "highly profitable 'pump-and-dump' schemes…from 2013 through 2018" in the stock of three public companies, including MGT. The SEC complaint further alleges that the schemes "enrich[ed] Defendants by millions of dollars, [and] left retail investors holding virtually worthless shares.”
