How A Short-Seller Took Down NYSE-Listed Bermuda Reinsurer Gerova Financial
In January 2011 Dalrymple Finance published a report on Gerova Financial, a NYSE-traded company with a market capitalization of $1 billion. The report was distributed on the financial news and opinion site Zero Hedge and concluded that Gerova was likely a fraud. Although the stock went to pennies within months, Dalrymple Finance was sued three times by associates of Gerova in a three-year battle that ended with seven executives and affiliates of Gerova being indicted for fraud.
Keith Dalrymple will discuss the Gerova case, detailing how they identified the fraud, the role offshore jurisdictions played in the analysis, and the dramatic exposure and post-exposure experience.
