On June 2, 2016, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) filed a complaint against Richard W. Davis, Jr. (“Davis”) and the entities named below (the “Receivership Defendants”), alleging that Davis, through the Receivership Defendants, raised at least $11.5 million through the unregistered sale of securities and failed to disclose to investors that the majority of the funds raised were either transferred to entities owned or controlled by Davis or transferred Davis in amounts in excess of the management fees that he had represented to investors he would be entitled to.  The SEC alleged various violations of the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and certain rules established under those statutes.  In the complaint and a subsequent motion, the SEC requested that the Court appoint a receiver for the entities listed below to marshal the assets of the Receivership Defendants in an orderly fashion and determine whether and to what extent the funds may be repaid to investors.

Without admitting or denying any of the allegations in the SEC’s complaint, Davis consented to entry of a judgment in the Civil Action. On June 3, 2016, the Court entered judgement against Davis, which, among other things, permanently restrains and enjoins Davis from engaging in any further conduct that would violate the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and also requires Davis to disgorge funds in an amount to be determined by the Court upon a future motion by the SEC.  Davis also consented to the appointment of a receiver.

Accordingly, on June 8, 2016, the Court appointed the Receiver to take possession, custody, and control over all of the assets belonging to the Receivership Defendants or any of their subsidiaries, successors, and assigns (the “Receivership Estate”).  In addition, the Receiver has been directed to liquidate the assets of the Receivership Estate, conduct a claims determination process, and disburse the funds in the Receivership Estate to holders of allowed claims based on a distribution scheme to be approved by the Court in the future.

The Receivership Defendants include the following:

  • DCG Real Assets, LLC
  • DCG Commercial Fund I, LLC
  • H20, LLC
  • Finely Limited, LLC
  • DCG Funds Underwriting, LLC
  • DCG ABF Management, LLC
