Apr 10 14
The United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that S.A.C. CAPITAL ADVISORS L.P. (SAC Capital LP), S.A.C. CAPITAL ADVISORS, LLC (SAC Capital LLC), CR INTRINSIC INVESTORS LLC (CR Intrinsic), and SIGMA CAPITAL MANAGEMENT LLC (Sigma Capital) (collectively, the SAC Companies), which are responsible for the management of a group of affiliated hedge funds (collectively the SAC hedge fund or SAC), were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Laura T. Swain. The District Court accepted the guilty plea entered by the defendants on November 8, 2013, and approved the parties plea agreement. The court imposed a sentence that included a criminal fine of $900 million (which is not tax-deductible), a statutory maximum five-year term of probation for each of the SAC Companies, the condition that the SAC hedge fund terminate its investment advisory business, effectively closing the hedge fund to outside investors; and a requirement that the defendants, and any successor entities, employ the compliance procedures necessary to identify and prevent insider trading; and that the defendants retain an independent compliance consultant, who will review, revise, and report to the government on those compliance procedures. Together with the settlement of the civil forfeiture action, which was approved by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Sullivan on November 6, 2013, the SAC hedge fund is required to pay an additional $1.184 billion financial penalty on top of the $616 million the SAC Companies have already agreed to pay to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
