BCSC Panel Finds That Burnaby Man Illegally Distributed Securities

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- A British Columbia Securities Commission panel has found that Adis Golic illegally distributed securities.

The panel found that Golic, a Burnaby resident during the relevant period, breached securities laws when he sold securities of AD Capital U.S. Inc. to three investors for total proceeds of $42,000 without a prospectus and without being registered. AD Capital U.S. was a Nevada-based corporation with a business address in Burnaby.

The allegations against Golic were first published in a May 2008 notice of hearing issued by BCSC staff. The hearing into the allegations was adjourned generally on March 26, 2009, pending the outcome of criminal proceedings against Golic.

In February 2010, charges were brought against Golic in the Provincial Court of British Columbia under the Securities Act and the Offences Act. There were three counts against Golic:


1.  between November 22, 2007 and May 12, 2008, he engaged in the
    distribution of securities without being registered to do so, contrary
    to section 34(1) and 155(1)(b) of the Act;

2.  between November 22, 2007 and May 12, 2008, he engaged in the
    distribution of securities without filing a prospectus, contrary to
    section 61 and 155(1)(b) of the Act;

3.  between March 1, 2008 and May 31, 2008, he made misrepresentations and
    omissions, contrary to section 50 and 155(1)(b) of the Act.

On October 17, 2011, after trial, Golic was convicted of selling securities without a prospectus and without being registered. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail, together with $40,000 in restitution. He was acquitted on the charge of making misrepresentations.

Referring to the trial judge's findings, the panel noted that, "Golic purposefully avoided the securities regulatory requirement, and...was instrumental in the running of a call center or "boiler room" for the sales of securities. Significant deterrence is warranted for those who set up their affairs with an intent to disregard securities laws."

The panel ordered that Golic be prohibited from trading in securities, purchasing securities or exchange contracts, and from becoming or acting as a director or officer of any issuer or registrant for a period of seven years. He is also banned, for the same period, from becoming or acting as a registrant or promoter, from engaging in investor relations activities, and from acting in a management or consultative capacity in connection with the securities market.
