CASE STATUS UPDATE – September, 2019
We are pleased to announce the commencement of the distribution of the Citigroup Global Markets Inc. Fair Fund.
We have completed the review of each of the claims to verify each investor’s eligibility to recover under the terms of the Distribution Plan. All eligible losses were determined in accordance with the Plan of Allocation contained in the Distribution Plan.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through this process.
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York (the “Court”) against Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (“CGM”) alleging that it violated the antifraud provisions of the Securities Act of 1933 (Sections 17(a) (2) and (3)), by, among other things, making misrepresentations and omissions of material facts regarding the collateralized debt obligation (“CDO”) called Class V Funding III. CGM consented to the entry of a Final Judgment that required it to pay $285 million. The Citigroup Global Markets Inc. Fair Fund (the “Citi Fair Fund”) was established May 23, 2017 by Court Order to distribute the disgorgement, prejudgment interest and a civil penalties paid by CGM. The SEC brought a related administrative proceeding against Credit Suisse Alternative Capital, Inc. (“CSAC”) and a CSAC affiliate which resulted in the entry of an Order requiring CSAC and an affiliate to pay $2.55 million. These monies have been added to the Citi Fair Fund to be distributed to harmed investors. The Citi Fair Fund will be distributed, pursuant to the Fair Fund provisions of Section 308(a) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, to investors in the Class V Funding III CDO that were harmed by misrepresentations and omissions of material facts made in connection with the marketing of the transaction. The Court appointed RCB Fund Services, LLC as the Distribution Agent for the Citi Fair Fund.
If you purchased an interest in the Class V Funding III CDO on or about February 28, 2007, you may be eligible for compensation from the Citi Fair Fund.
