The SEC has obtained a court order freezing more than $27 million in trading proceeds from allegedly illegal distributions and sales of restricted shares of Longfin Corp. stock involving the company, its CEO, and three other affiliated individuals. According to a complaint unsealed today in federal court in Manhattan, shortly after Longfin began trading on NASDAQ and announced the acquisition of a purported cryptocurrency business, its stock price rose dramatically and its market capitalization exceeded $3 billion. The SEC alleges that Dorababu Penumarthi, Suresh Tammineedi, and their co-conspirators then illegally sold large blocks of their restricted Longfin shares to the public while the stock price was highly elevated. Through their sales, Penumarthi, Tammineedi, and others collectively reaped more than $27 million in profits. SEC
