SEC Settles with Ash Narayan

The SEC has reached a tentative agreement with Ash Narayan to settle its claims against him.  Under the proposed agreement, Narayan will pay the SEC $1,498,000, which represents the net amount paid to Narayan by TTR.  The SEC has agreed to pay the proceeds of the settlement to the estate.  In return, the Receiver has agreed not to seek repayment of the $1,498,000 from Narayan.  The settlement must still be approved by Commissioners of the SEC; a process that will take several months.


On June 23, 2016, the Receiver filed his Initial Report with the Court.  Copies of the Report may be also obtained on the Court Documents and/or the Investor Communications pages.  In the report, the Receiver describes his activities, the initial results of his investigation and a plan for administering the estate. The report, issued 30 days after the start of the receivership, was required by the Court.  A copy of the Report may be found on the "Court Documents" and "Investor Communications" pages.
