The SEC charged two former top executives at OCZ Technology Group Inc., a now-bankrupt seller of computer memory storage and power supply devices, with accounting failures.  The SEC’s complaint alleges that OCZ’s former CEO engaged in a scheme to materially inflate OCZ’s revenues and gross margins from 2010 to 2012, by, for instance, mischaracterizing sales discounts as marketing expenses, channel-stuffing OCZ’s largest customer, and concealing large product returns.  OCZ’s former CFO agreed to pay $130,000 in disgorgement and to be barred from acting as an officer or director of a public company  to settle the SEC’s charges against him of accounting, disclosure, and internal accounting control failures.  SEC
