Sebi settles case against MD of Sark Systems
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) said that case against J Muralikrishna, Managing Director of Sark Systems (now known as VEDAVAAG Systems) is settled.
"... for the sole purpose of settling the matter on hand, without admitting or denying the guilt on the part of the noticee to the finding of fact or conclusion of law, the noticee remitted a sum of Rs three lakh ... towards the terms of consent in the matter," Sebi said in its order yesterday.
The regulator noted that Muralikrishna had also complied with Sebi's norms relating to insider trading as well as those pertaining to shareholding disclosure regulations.
A Sebi probe had found that Muralikrishna was holding 12.94 per cent stake in the company as on March 31, 2010 which reduced to 7.91 per cent as on June quarter 2010.
As per the norms, Muralikrishna was under obligation to disclose to the company and the concerned stock exchanges about his shareholding pattern which had changed more than one per cent.
Further, it was also observed that he failed to disclose transfer of share aggregating two per cent or more of the share capital of the company within two days of the transaction.
Sebi had therefore initiated adjudication proceedings. While the proceedings were in progress, Muralikrishna made an offer to settle the case under Sebi's consent
