SEC freezes Swiss accounts
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday received a court order freezing a Zurich, Switzerland, account on suspicions of insider trading in the takeover of H.J. Heinz.
The SEC alleges that options traders made a profit of more than $1.7 million from knowing that Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital were going to buy Heinz for $28 billion, or $72.50 a share. The SEC found suspicious the fact that defendants bought 2,533 out-of-the-money June $65 calls a day before the deal was announced, after never having traded Heinz previously in the account. The account identifies the Zurich account as being at GS & Co. -- a name Goldman Sachs Group Inc. uses for its options broker.
