    Exclamation Stenger and Quiros Ousted from Management of Jay Peak and Burke

    For those not following the Burke thread, we now know that yesterday federal officials from the SEC paid a visit to Burke Mountain, seized information, changed the locks on the buildings, and began an investigation onsite into alleged mismanagement of EB-5 funds for the QHotel project.

    WCAX is now reporting that as part of that investigation that Messrs. Stenger and Quiros have been relieved of their management authority for both Jay and Burke and that an independent resort and hotel management company are now in control of the operations, pending the outcome of the federal investigations.

    This is just surreal.

    Agree! Prior to this I wasn't sure whether Magic's or Burke's management was the bigger display of incompetence in the VT Ski Industry. Burke just took a BIG lead in that display of incompetence!!

    I don't think it's who's more incompetent, but who had more money to be incompetent with ...
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Magic is just incompetent, these guys seem very, very competent in what they're doing, just so happens what they're doing is a crime.

    Does Jay stay open late like they usually do with this whole mess or just shut it down and go on life support?

    Agreed. This goes beyond incompetence.

    Yeah, this is in the category of where there is a large pile of money there are likely to be at least suspicions that things inappropriate may be afoot.

    This just went to a whole other level:



    SEC Case Freezes Assets of Ski Resort Steeped in Fraudulent EB-5 Offerings
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    2016-69
    Washington D.C., April 14, 2016 — The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced fraud charges and an asset freeze against a Vermont-based ski resort and related businesses allegedly misusing millions of dollars raised through investments solicited under the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. The SEC’s case was unsealed today in federal court in Miami, and the court has appointed a receiver over the companies to prevent any further spending of investor assets.
    The SEC alleges that Ariel Quiros of Miami, William Stenger of Newport, Vt., and their companies made false statements and omitted key information while raising more than $350 million from investors to construct ski resort facilities and a biomedical research facility in Vermont. Investors were told they were investing in one of several projects connected to Jay Peak Inc., a ski resort operated by Quiros and Stenger, and their money would only be used to finance that specific project. Instead, in Ponzi-like fashion, money from investors in later projects was misappropriated to fund deficits in earlier projects. More than $200 million was allegedly used for other-than-stated purposes, including $50 million spent on Quiros’s personal expenses and in other ways never disclosed to investors.

    According to the SEC’s complaint, Quiros improperly tapped investor funds for such things as the purchase of a luxury condominium, payment of his income taxes and other taxes unrelated to the investments, and acquisition of an unrelated ski resort.

    “The alleged fraud ran the gamut from false statements to deceptive financial transactions to outright theft,” said Andrew Ceresney, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. “As alleged in our complaint, the defendants diverted millions of EB-5 investor dollars to their own pockets, leaving little money for construction of the research facility investors were told would be built and thereby putting the investors’ funds and their immigration petitions in jeopardy.”

    The SEC’s complaint charges Quiros, Stenger, Jay Peak, and a company owned by Quiros called Q Resorts Inc. as well as seven limited partnerships and their general partner companies with violating the antifraud provisions of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5. Four other companies are named as relief defendants in the SEC’s complaint for the purpose of recovering investor funds transferred into their accounts. The SEC seeks preliminary and permanent injunctions, financial penalties, and disgorgement of ill-gotten gains plus interest. The agency also seeks conduct-based injunctive relief against Quiros and Stenger along with an officer-and-director bar against Quiros.

    The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Brian Theophilus James, Trisha D. Sindler, Michelle Lama, and Mark Dee, and the case was supervised by Chedly C. Dumornay of the Miami Regional Office. The SEC’s litigation will be led by Christopher Martin and Robert K. Levenson of the Miami office. The SEC appreciates the assistance of the Office of the Vermont Attorney General and other authorities in Vermont.
