"El capital obtenido en certificados de depósito en el primer semestre de 2019 alcanza un total de $10 400 millones"

NUEVA YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--La demanda de acciones no estadounidenses continuó su curso firme al alcanzarse la suma de $10 400 millones en certificados de depósito (DR, del inglés) por parte de emisores a nivel mundial durante el primer semestre de 2019, un aumento del 25 % respecto al primer semestre de 2018, según un informe sobre el sector de los Servicios de Certificados de Depósito de Citi.


El aumento en la obtención de capital de DR estuvo impulsado principalmente por una mayor actividad en la región de Asia-Pacífico, que reportó $8100 millones en la obtención de capital en total (cerca del 78 % de la suma total) en comparación con $6500 millones durante el primer semestre de 2018. Las ofertas follow-on (ofertas complementarias a la inicial) para DR aumentaron 125 % a $ 6100 millones, representando el 58 % del capital de DR obtenido en total en 2019. Los emisores radicados en China obtuvieron $ 6600 millones en conjunto, cifra que representa el 63 % del total. Entre estos emisores, Huatai Securities, una empresa de servicios financieros con sede en Nanjing y cliente piloto del canal de inversión Stock Connect Shanghai-Londres, obtuvo $ 1700 millones en su Oferta Pública Inicial (IPO, del inglés) de junio, la IPO de DR más grande de 2019 y en la que Citi participó como Banco de Depósito. Además, Pinduoduo lnc., una plataforma de comercio electrónico de China, realizó una oferta de valores follow-on (oferta complementaria a la inicial) de $ 1600 millones, la oferta secundaria de valores de DR más grande en el primer semestre de 2019.


La tendencia en la obtención de capital por parte de Empresas Emergentes en Crecimiento (EGC, del inglés) continuó estable durante el primer semestre de 2019, con 8 de 10 emisores radicados en China que decidieron salir al mercado mediante la Ley JOBS. Promulgada en 2012 para asistir a las pequeñas empresas emergentes en el acceso a capital en EE. UU., la Ley JOBS modificó los requisitos normativos de obtención de capital para una nueva categoría de emisor denominada EGC (definida como un emisor que genera menos de $ 1070 millones en ingresos brutos anuales). De las operaciones de IPO de DR enmarcadas en la Ley JOBS durante el primer semestre de 2019, los emisores radicados en EMEA representaron alrededor del 40 % en cantidad de operaciones.


Los Servicios de Certificados de Depósito de Citi mantienen su compromiso de brindar respaldo a emisores mundiales que buscan obtener capital en forma de DR.


“Citi mantuvo su posición de liderazgo en las actividades de IPO de DR durante el primer semestre de 2019”, señaló Nancy Lissemore, presidenta global de Servicios de Certificados de Depósito de Citi. “El crecimiento continuo en la actividad de obtención de capital de DR demuestra que la estructura de DR continúa siendo un vehículo de elección atractivo para el acceso a mercados financieros por parte de los emisores”.


Otros puntos destacados del mercado de DR durante el primer semestre de 2019 incluyen:

Los sectores de Internet y petróleo y gas representaron el 44 % del valor de intercambio total de DR.

Software y servicios, finanzas y consumo discrecional representaron el 57 % del total en la obtención del capital de DR.


Dieciséis emisores completaron su IPO a través de la Ley JOBS, en comparación con un total de 13 emisores durante el primer semestre de 2018.

Los programas de Certificados Americanos de Depósito (ADR, del inglés) no patrocinados de China y Japón representaron el 46 % del volumen de intercambio no patrocinado en total.


Citi es proveedor líder en servicios de certificados de depósito. Con programas de certificados de depósito en 64 mercados, que abarcan desde productos de ingresos fijos hasta valores, Citi aprovecha su red mundial a fin de proveer acceso al mercado de capital internacional a emisores, intermediarios e inversores.

Florida Man Pleads Guilty To Extensive Cyberstalking and Threats Campaign

BOSTON – A Florida man pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Boston to cyberstalking and threatening his former schoolmate, a 30-year-old Massachusetts woman.


Byron A. Cardozo, 35, who previously resided in Jacksonville and Tamarac, Fla., pleaded guilty to one count of cyberstalking and one count of making interstate threats. U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs scheduled sentencing for Nov. 12, 2019. Cardozo was arrested in August 2018 and has been in custody since.


Cardozo engaged in an 18-month-long, multi-faceted cyberstalking and threats campaign targeting his former schoolmate. He launched his campaign in February 2017, shortly after the victim wrote and published an essay in an online magazine describing a one-time, traumatic sexual encounter she had with Cardozo when she was approximately 13-years-old and he was approximately 17-years-old while they attended the same school in Florida. The victim used pseudonyms for Cardozo and others in the essay. In response, Cardozo sent hundreds of online communications, many of which he made in the “comments” section to the essay and on the victim’s personal website, where he claimed that the victim fabricated her claims about the coercive nature of the 2001 sexual encounter. Cardozo provided graphic descriptions of his purported consensual sexual encounter with the victim, and he described how he continued to masturbate to the victim’s photographs. Cardozo also made express and implicit threats to injure the victim. At other times, he also apologized to her for the traumatic sexual experience in 2001, asked for forgiveness, expressed his love for her, and made veiled threats to commit suicide “because of you.” Cardozo continued to harass and threaten the victim despite the fact that she had obtained a state court order in April 2017, forbidding him from communicating with her.


The charges of cyberstalking and making interstate threats each provide for a sentence of up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.


United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division; and Joseph Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Office, made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Amy Harman Burkart, Chief of Lelling’s Cyber Crime Unit, and Senior Trial Attorney Mona Sedky of the Criminal Division’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section are prosecuting the case.

"Pharmacy Owner Sentenced for Health Care Fraud and Filing False Tax Returns"

St. Louis, MO – Rehan A. Rana, 46, of Ellisville, MO, was sentenced on Friday, August 16, 2019 to 24 months in prison and three years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay a $100.000 fine, restitution in the amount of $751,787 to the Internal Revenue Service, and $526,285 to the Medicare Program. Rana appeared before U.S. District Judge Audrey G. Fleissig.


According to court documents, between 2009 and 2012, Rana and others associated with Allegiance Medical Services, a medical testing laboratory, paid illegal kickbacks to doctors and marketers in exchange for blood and urine specimens that they sent or referred to the lab. Allegiance Medical Services concealed the illegal kickbacks from Medicare and Medicaid, which would not paid for tests of specimens obtained by the payment of illegal kickbacks.


For the tax years 2013, 2014, and 2015, Rana, the owner of St. Louis Hills Pharmacy, filed false tax returns, indicating that he had taxable distributions from his pharmacy of only $300,000 in 2013, $150,000 in 2014, and $217,500 in 2015, when he actually had received $1,993,600 in 2013, $1,328,924 in 2014, and $1,253,372 in 2015.

“IRS Criminal Investigation is committed to investigating individuals who use their businesses as personal piggy banks,” said Steven Slazinik, Acting Special Agent in Charge of IRS Criminal Investigation. “We all pay when others swindle the government. Tax fraud of this magnitude and with this degree of trickery, dishonesty and deceit, deserves to be punished.”


The Internal Revenue Service – Office of Criminal Investigation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Office of the Inspector General, the FBI, and the Missouri Medicaid Fraud Control Unit investigated the case. Assistant United States Attorney Dorothy McMurtry handled the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

"Field of Schemes Fraud Results in Over a Decade in Federal Prison for Leader of Largest Organic Fraud Case in U.S. History"

WASHINGTON – A former Kansas bank executive was found guilty by a federal jury yesterday for his participation in a bank fraud scheme to obtain a $15 million construction loan for certain bank customers based upon false and fraudulent representations. The loan was shared among 26 Kansas banks.


Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Special Agent in Charge Justin R. Bundy of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Office of Inspector General’s (FDIC-OIG) Kansas City Regional Office, Special Agent in Charge Timothy R. Langan of the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office and Special Agent in Charge Catherine Huber of the Federal Housing Finance Agency Office of Inspector General’s (FHFA-OIG) Central Region Office made the announcement.


Troy A. Gregory, 52, of Lawrence, Kansas, was found guilty of four counts of bank fraud and two counts of false statements, as charged in a November 2017 indictment. The jury failed to reach a verdict as to one count of conspiracy. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2020, before U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia of the District of Kansas, who presided over the trial.


According to the evidence submitted at trial, Gregory was a bank executive and loan officer who had made millions of dollars in loans to a group of borrowers who were struggling to make payments on the loans. Beginning in approximately late 2007, Gregory began the process of making a $15.2 million construction loan to build an apartment complex to that same group of borrowers. Gregory’s bank shared this loan with 25 other Kansas banks. Gregory made and caused others to make false statements to the banks about the strength of the borrowers, the debt status of the apartment property and the existence of approximately $1.7 million in certificates of deposit for collateral on the loan, all to get the loan approved. Instead of using the loan funds promised for building the apartments, Gregory immediately diverted over $1 million of the loan to pay for part of the certificates of deposit pledged as collateral, pay off debt on the apartment property, and make payments on unrelated loans, the evidence showed. Other Kansas banks that shared in this loan would not have participated in the loan without the false representations and promises. The banks ultimately wrote off millions of dollars on the $15.2 million construction loan, the evidence showed.


The FDIC-OIG, IRS-CI, FBI and FHFA-OIG are investigating this matter. Trial Attorney Andrew R. Tyler and Senior Litigation Counsel David A. Bybee of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section are prosecuting the case.

"Former Ohio Resident Admits to Traveling to Engage in Illegal Sexual Activity"

PITTSBURGH, PA- A former resident of Vienna, Ohio, pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of traveling with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity with a minor, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.


Jeffrey Judd, 60, pleaded guilty to one count before United States District Judge Cathy Bissoon.


In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that in late May 2017, Judd began conversing with a 14-year-old male over the "Chathour" software application and by email. He arranged to meet the child victim in the parking lot of his school on June 1, 2017, and traveled from Vienna, Ohio, to Hermitage, Pennsylvania, to engage in intercourse and oral sex acts with the victim. The victim was frightened by Judd’s arrival at the school, and failed to show at the meet location. He later reported his communications with Judd to school officials. Judd continued to communicate by email with the victim until June 5, 2017.


Judge Bissoon scheduled sentencing for Dec. 6, 2019, at 10 a.m. The law provides for a total sentence of 30 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant. Defendant Judd has been detained pending the resolution of the case.

Assistant United States Attorney Carolyn J. Bloch is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.


The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Hermitage Police Department conducted the investigation leading to the prosecution of Judd. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.

"Delaware Businessman Sentenced to Federal Prison In Multi-Million Dollar Ponzi Scheme"

WILMINGTON, Del. – David C. Weiss, U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware, announced today that Carl Chen, owner of Chenmax Properties, Inc., a Delaware Real Estate Investment Trust, and part-owner of Re/Max Sunvest Realty Co., was sentenced today in federal court in Delaware to 51 months in prison. Chen pled guilty in March 2019 to wire fraud emanating out of a multi-year Ponzi scheme he orchestrated.


According to court documents and statements made at the hearing, Chen operated Chenmax Properties since 1997, soliciting large real estate investments from his real-estate clients and others. Chen promised his investors guaranteed interest and a full return of their principal payments. However, by 2013, Chen’s business was losing money, and Chen began diverting newly invested funds to pay prior investors.


The government calculated that Chen fraudulently collected at least $3.32 million in investments from twenty different victims between 2013 and 2017. In October 2017, Chen declared bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, seeking to discharge $6.738 million of debt he owed to investors, including the victims of his fraud.


United States District Judge Richard G. Andrews, who sentenced Chen, noted that the case was “One of the most horrendous white collar offenses that I remember seeing.”


Victims at the sentencing hearing described how Chen solicited hundreds of thousands of dollars in investments from them on multiple occasions, claiming that the investments were for real estate ventures. In actuality, the money investors paid Chen was immediately used to pay off other investors or for Chen’s personal expenses.

U.S. Attorney Weiss commented that “Chen brazenly defrauded innocent Delaware residents, and others, who believed his promises and trusted him to handle their financial security. While this sentence cannot repair the breach of trust, it sends a strong message that my office will prosecute these fraud crimes and seek substantial prison terms for anyone who, like Chen, carries out a large-scale fraud against unsuspecting victims.”


"The effects of this type of fraud can be devastating to the victims. As a result of this scheme, several hardworking people were victimized and lost significant amounts of their life savings," said Jennifer Boone, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Baltimore Office. "The FBI in Delaware and our partners will continue to vigorously investigate these crimes and hold accountable anyone who takes advantage of unsuspecting victims in order to enrich themselves."


This case was investigated by the FBI Baltimore Division’s Wilmington Office and the Office of the U.S. Trustee and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Alexander P. Ibrahim and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Hannah McCollum.

"Buffalo Man Sentenced To 42 Years In Prison For Production And Possession of Child Pornography"

CONTACT: Barbara Burns

PHONE: (716) 843-5817

FAX #: (716) 551-3051


BUFFALO, N.Y. - U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that Duke Jimenez, 36, of Buffalo, NY, who was convicted of production and possession of child pornography, was sentenced to serve 42 years in prison and a lifetime of supervised released by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.


Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango, who handled the case, stated that between February 10 and October 27, 2014, the defendant engaged in sexual contact with a three-year-old female child entrusted to his care. This conduct resulted in both physical and emotional harm to the child. In a written victim impact statement, the victim’s mother stated that the child would scream and cry “the bad man’s going to kill me” and “he said he would kill me.”


During the sexual contact, Jimenez used his cellular telephone to create visual depictions of the victim engaging in sexually explicit conduct. The images were located on the defendant’s SD card. Jimenez was arrested by the Buffalo Police Department on November 18, 2015, at which time the defendant’s telephone was seized. A subsequent search of phone and SD card in the phone revealed 18 image files which depicted the victim engaging in the sexually explicit conduct.


“While kids often seek to escape imaginary childhood monsters by hiding under their covers, where those monsters are real, we must do all that we can to capture and cage them,” noted U.S. Attorney Kennedy. “This sentence illustrates just how seriously we take our obligation to protect the most vulnerable among us.”


The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Buffalo Office, under the direction of Gary Loeffert, Special Agent-in-Charge; the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Byron Lockwood; and the Cheektowaga Police Department under the direction of Chief David Zack.

"Long Island Man Extradited from Ireland to Face Child Pornography and Sexual Exploitation Charges"

Defendant Allegedly Transported a Minor Across the United States and to Foreign Countries to Engage in Sexual Conduct

Daniel Mullan will be arraigned this afternoon in federal court in Central Islip before United States Magistrate Judge A. Kathleen Tomlinson on an indictment charging him with sexual exploitation of a child, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in sexual activity and possession of child pornography. Mullan was extradited to the United States from Ireland on August 15, 2019.


Richard P. Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, William F. Sweeney, Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, New York Field Office (FBI), and Geraldine Hart, Commissioner, Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD), announced the extradition and charges.

“As alleged, Daniel Mullan victimized children here and 

abroad for decades by sexually abusing them and recording these acts,” stated United States Attorney Donoghue. “The protection of children is a priority of this Office and the Department of Justice. Those who exploit and victimize children will be identified and brought to justice.” Mr. Donoghue extended his grateful appreciation to the FBI’s Long Island Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, comprising the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, for its investigative work and assistance in the case.


“As alleged in the indictment, Mr. Mullan has sexually abused children for decades, robbing them of the innocence all children deserve,” stated FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Sweeney. “The Long Island Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force along with the FBI's Victim Specialists are committed to identifying and providing assistance to all of Mr. Mullan’s victims. We are asking anyone who may have been a victim of Mr. Mullan to call us at 1-800-CALL-FBI. We believe there are other children who were victimized and we would like to hear from them.”


“For years, Daniel Mullan preyed on children robbing them of their innocence and he will now have to answer for his horrifying crimes,” stated SCPD Commissioner Hart. “I applaud the tireless work of the Eastern District of New York and the FBI’s Long Island Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force, who are dedicated to protecting our children and bringing those who target them to justice.”

According to court filings, in the summer of 2017, the FBI executed search warrants at Mullan’s residence in Elmont, New York, and his rental storage unit in Melville, and seized hundreds of images and videos of child pornography. Several videos depicted Mullan engaged in sexual acts with teenage boys dating back to the early 1980s. Numerous victims were then identified, including a male juvenile with whom Mullan traveled in the United States and abroad between 1999 and 2006 for the purpose of engaging in sex and recording it for himself and to sell to others.


The charges in the indictment are allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. If convicted, Mullan faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years’ and a maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment.


This prosecution is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Department of Justice Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet as well as to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit: www.projectsafechildhood.gov.


The government’s case is being handled by the Office’s Long Island Criminal Division. Assistant United States Attorney Michael Maffei is in charge of the prosecution. The Department of Justice’s Office of International Affairs assisted in the extradition.
