SEC v. Mark Cuban

SEC Complaint against Mark Cuban


The Commission charges Defendant Mark Cuban ("Cuban") with committing securities fraud by engaging in illegal insider trading. Despite agreeing in June 2004 to keep material, non-public information about an impending stock offering by Inc. confidential, Cuban sold his entire stake in the company -600,000 shares -prior to the public announcement of the offering. By selling when he did, Cuban avoided losses in excess of $750,000.

By conduct detailed in this Complaint, Cuban violated Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 ("Securities Act") [15 U.S.C. 5 77q(a)] and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act") [15 U.S.C. 5 78j(b)] and Rule lob-5 thereunder [17 C.F.R. 240.10b-51.
