Premier Holding Corp. ("Premier"), a California-based company that describes itself as a green energy services provider, and its CEO, Randall Letcavage, orchestrated a series of purportedly important transactions with related parties designed to create the false appearance of an active company with a vibrant and promising business. According to the complaint, Premier and Letcavage used these transactions to mislead investors about the financial health of the company and to hide losses in Premier's financial statements. Among other things, Premier and Letcavage assigned a high value to Premier's most significant tangible asset, a promissory note, that they knew, recklessly disregarded, or should have known was incorrect. Premier and Letcavage allegedly misled investors about the value of this promissory note in filings with the SEC in 2013 and 2014.The SEC also charged Joseph Greenblatt, a consultant who provided accounting services to Premier. According to the SEC's complaint, Greenblatt assisted Premier in preparing certain of its fraudulent financial statements, which included a valuation of the promissory note that he knew, recklessly disregarded, or should have known was inadequately supported.
