"I am pleased to have resolved this matter with the SEC and look forward to being focused on business without any disruption of an SEC complaint," stated John A. Mattera.
In August 2010, the SEC agreed to the settlement with John A. Mattera, the Mattera Reserve's chairman and CEO. Mr. Mattera, without admitting or denying the allegations in the SEC's complaint, agreed to the entry of a final judgment that permanently enjoins him from violations of Section 10(b) and Rule 10b-5 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and imposes a penny stock bar. In addition, the SEC imposed a civil monetary penalty of $70,000 and disgorgement of $70,000 plus interest of $8,799.94. The settlement does not otherwise restrict Mr. Mattera from serving as an officer or director of a public company. The Mattera Reserve was not a party to the SEC complaint.
