A China-focused hedge fund manager has settled allegations of "wide-ranging" fraud.
Peter Siris and his Guerrilla Capital Management and Hua Mei 21st Century struck a deal with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to end the regulator's probe. The SEC had alleged that Siris and his firms broke a raft of securities laws, especially in his dealings with China Yingxia International.
Siris and his firms did not admit or deny wrongdoing, but agreed to pay $1.1 million to settle the allegations, which included illegal short-selling and the sale of unregistered securities.
The settlement comes as the SEC filed charges against five other people and another firm as part of its China Yingxia probe.
Siris is a well-known investor in Chinese stocks listed on Western exchanges, focusing on reverse mergers.
