Introduction

6.

DJL Capital is a corporation incorporated under the laws of Ontario on August 9, 1993 and carried on business in London, Ontario. DJL Capital was registered from July 7, 1995 to January 11, 2000 as a dealer in the category of limited market dealer, pursuant to section 26(1) of the Act (with the exception of the period from August 7, 1999 to October 6, 1999 for failure to pay renewal fees as required). During the material times as described below, DJL Capital was the promoter of the offering for sale of the units in Dual Capital Limited Partnership, and the promoter of the offering for sale of the units of DJL Capital.

7.

Little is an individual residing in Ontario and at all material times was the sole director and officer of DJL Capital. Little was registered from July 7, 1995 to January 11, 2000 as the trading officer and director with DJL Capital, a limited market dealer pursuant to section 26(1) of the Act (with the exception of the period from August 7, 1999 to October 6, 1999 as described above).

8.

By Temporary Order (the "Temporary Order") of the Ontario Securities Commission (the "Commission") made on January 11, 2000, the Commission ordered that trading by DJL Capital and Little cease. The Temporary Order was extended, on the consent of DJL Capital and Little, by Order of the Commission made on January 21, 2000.

Trading by Little in Dual Capital Units Contrary to the Requirements of Ontario Securities Law

9.

During the period from October, 1994 to December, 1996, Little traded in securities, namely units (the "Dual Capital Units") of Dual Capital Limited Partnership (the "Limited Partnership"), where such trading was a distribution of such securities, without having filed a preliminary prospectus and a prospectus and obtaining receipts therefor from the Director as required by section 53(1) of the Act. Dual Capital Management Limited ("Dual Capital") was the limited partner. During the material time, Dual Capital accepted subscriptions to the Dual Capital Units from at least 56 members of the public and raised funds in the amount of at least U.S. $1,500,000.

10.

The Dual Capital Units were purportedly offered for sale pursuant to the "seed capital" prospectus exemption set out in section 72(1)(p) of the Act. The requirements of the "seed capital" exemption from the prospectus requirements in Ontario securities law were not satisfied. An offering memorandum dated October 18, 1994, as amended on December 19, 1994 for the Limited Partnership (the "Offering Memorandum"), was provided to some of the investors who purchased the Dual Capital Units.

11.

DJL Capital is described in the Offering Memorandum as the promoter, and received payments in the amount of approximately U.S. $161,525.00 from Dual Capital in relation to the offering of the Dual Capital Units. DJL Capital made payments to Dual Capital in the amount of U.S. $97,964.00.

12.

On October 26, 2000, in a related prosecution under section 122 of the Act before the Honourable Mr. Justice Douglas, Dual Capital, and its two officers, Warren Wall and Shirley Joan Wall, entered pleas of guilty in relation to trading by Dual Capital in securities, namely, the Units, without being registered to trade in such securities as required by section 25(1) of the Ontario Securities Act and distributing securities without having filed a prospectus in contravention of section 53(1) of the Ontario Securities Act. Mr. Justice Douglas accepted the pleas, entered convictions and sentenced the two officers, Warren Wall and Shirley Joan Wall, to a total of 30 months and 22 months, respectively, and Dual Capital to a total fine of $1,000,000.

13.

In the course of delivering his Reasons for Sentence on October 30, 2000 [cited at (2001) 24 OSCB 763, February 2, 2001], Mr. Justice Douglas stated the following in relation to the description of the investment scheme in the Dual Capital Limited Partnership (also referred to as the "Roll Programme" and the "International Lending Programme"):

I find that the Roll Programme as conceived, was and remains utter nonsense. The programme, considered in and of itself, is a fraudulent means....

...I find that the Roll Programme was per se dishonest.

...Indeed, the evidence is conclusive and nearly complete that all of the investors were neither sophisticated (but naïve), nor rich (but poor) or, at least, dependent upon the little money they had.

14.

The Offering Memorandum represented that DJL Capital would not receive any benefits, directly or indirectly from the issuance of the Limited Partnership Units other than as described therein. The Offering Memorandum further represented that DJL Capital would receive payment equal to 4.5% of the 30% rate of return described above. During the material time, DJL Capital received payments from Dual Capital in the amount of approximately U.S. $161,525.00 when Little knew that the source of payments were funds received from investors and not income earned from any investment made by the Limited Partnership. As stated above, DJL Capital made payments to Dual Capital in the amount of U.S. $97,964.00.

15.

During the Material Time, Little sold Units to two investors. The investors paid approximately $130,000 for the purchase of the Units through Little.

Representations in Promotional Material

16.

Further, a brochure (the "Brochure") entitled "International Lending Programme - Investor Information" prepared by Little under the name of Dual Capital, was distributed to investors in furtherance of the sale of the Units, and made various representations to investors which were contrary to the public interest. Such representations to investors included the promise of high annual returns under the heading in the Brochure "High Annual Returns .... with Absolutely No Risk" which representations were false and misleading to investors and contrary to the public interest.

Conduct Contrary To The Public Interest in relation to Sale of Dual Capital Units

17.

In summary, during the material time, Little violated Ontario securities law and engaged in conduct contrary to the public interest, by reason of the following:

(a)

Little traded in securities without being registered contrary to section 25(1) of the Act;

(b)

Little traded in securities which constituted a distribution without a prospectus contrary to section 53(1) of the Act;

(c)

Little, in his capacity as the sole officer of DJL Capital, the promoter, prepared promotional material which contained false and misleading representations to investors as described above;

(d)

Little failed to disclose to investors that investors' funds were used to fund payments to DJL Capital and/or Little, and trading in the Units, when Little knew or ought to have known of the foregoing in his capacity as an officer and director of DJL Capital; and

(e)

failing to assess the suitability of the Units sold by Little to the needs of the investors.

18.

DJL Capital, through its officer and director, Little, sold Units and engaged in conduct to effect the sale of Units, contrary to the prospectus and registration requirements of Ontario securities law described above.

Trading in the DJL Capital Units Contrary to the Requirements of Ontario Securities Law

19.

During the period from August, 1997 to September, 1998, DJL Capital and its sole officer, Little, accepted subscriptions to Units in DJL Capital (the "DJL Capital Units") from investors residing in Ontario, and raised funds in the amount of at least Cdn. $950,000.

20.

During the material times, DJL Capital and Little traded in securities, namely the DJL Capital Units, where such trading was a distribution of such securities, without having filed a preliminary prospectus and a prospectus and obtaining receipts therefor from the Director as required by section 53(1) of the Act.

21.

The DJL Capital Units were purportedly offered for sale pursuant to the "seed capital" prospectus exemption set out in section 72(1)(p) of the Act.

22.

The Offering Memorandum dated January 1, 1998 (the "DJL Offering Memorandum") prepared by DJL Capital in connection with the offering of the DJL Capital Units was not delivered to the Commission as required under Ontario securities law. Further, the DJL Offering Memorandum was not provided to each investor who purchased the DJL Capital Units.

23.

During the material times, DJL Capital distributed securities for a period greater than six months contrary to the requirements of the exemption set out in section 72(1)(p)(i) of the Act.

24.

In addition, the respondents failed to file a report under Form 20 contrary to the requirements contained in section 72(3) of the Act and additional requirements contained in the Act.

25.

As set out in paragraph 6 above, during the material time, DJL Capital was registered in the category of limited market dealer and Little was registered as its trading officer. The Units were not sold in accordance with the exemptions from the prospectus and registration requirements contained in 72(1)(p) and 35(1)(21) of the Act and other requirements contained in the Act. Accordingly, DJL Capital and Little did not sell the Units in accordance with their registration under section 26(1) of the Act.

Misrepresentations to Investors Contrary to the Public Interest

Use of Proceeds

26.

DJL Capital represented to investors in the DJL Offering Memorandum and in promotional material that DJL Capital was establishing itself as a merchant bank for the purpose of raising capital for dynamic, growing businesses. The summary of the DJL Offering Memorandum states, in part, the following with respect to "Use of Proceeds" from the sale of the Units:

The estimated net proceeds to the Corporation from a maximum offering hereunder will be $612,000 after deducting the Agent's fee, corporate finance fee. Of this amount, approximately $480,000 will be used to institute a $30,000,000 bond offering (See "Bond Offering"). The writing and preparation of customized software for the business is expected to require $40,000. A further $20,000 will be used as capital to establish the appropriate office facilities and systems. The remaining $72,000 will be added to the working capital.

27.

During the material time, DJL Capital and Little failed to disclose to investors that most of the funds accepted from investors for the purchase of DJL Capital Units were not used for the purposes set out in the DJL Offering Memorandum and further failed to disclose that most of the investors' funds were used instead for payments to various companies and persons, including payments to Little in the amount of at least approximately Cdn. $58,000.00. In addition, investor funds of at least Cdn. $654,000 were deposited to an account held in the name of Heritage Arabian Farms Ltd. ("Heritage"), a company incorporated under the laws of Ontario, carrying on the business of providing board and care for horses. Little was during the material time the sole officer and director of Heritage.

Price of Units Offered by DJL Capital

28.

The DJL Offering Memorandum states that the offering is comprised of a maximum of 25 unequal DJL Capital Units, and that each DJL Capital Unit consists of a minimum of 2,000 Class A preferred shares to a maximum of 15,000 Class A preferred shares per DJL Capital Unit. However, the accompanying subscription form for the sale of the DJL Capital Units states that each DJL Capital Unit consists of 100 Class A Preferred shares. The subscription form further states that the subscription price of each DJL Capital Unit is $1,000.00 (or 100 Class A Preferred shares at a price of $10.00 per preferred share).

29.

DJL Capital and/or Little further represented in the DJL Offering Memorandum that the subscription price per DJL Capital Unit was established by DJL Capital and "Michael Carnegie, C.A., C.B.V., Senior Vice-President, TL Corporate Financial Services Inc., of Hamilton, Ontario". Michael Carnegie and/or TL Corporate Financial Services Inc. had no role in establishing the subscription price per DJL Capital Unit contrary to the representations made to investors as set out in the DJL Offering Memorandum.

Additional Representations made by DJL Capital and Little

30.

DJL Capital and Little made the following representations which were false and misleading to investors and contrary to the public interest:

(a)

DJL Capital and Little represented in promotional material that "... capital will be guaranteed by money on deposit held by the corporation ....", and that " .... at all times there will be at least five dollars on reserve for each dollar of obligation to investors";

(b)

DJL Capital and Little represented in the DJL Offering Memorandum that DJL Capital intended to pay a 12% annual dividend on its preferred shares and that the return would commence March 31, 1998 once funding was completed and that dividends would thereafter be paid quarterly; and

(c)

DJL Capital and Little represented in the DJL Offering Memorandum that DJL Capital ".... anticipates profits of $15,000,000.00 by the year 2002" and that this ".... anticipated growth of approximately 750% over five years should allow all shareholders to experience a significant gain". It is further stated in the DJL Offering Memorandum that DJL Capital ".... anticipates an annualized rate of return of approximately 100%".

31.

Investors have not received dividends contrary to the representations made by DJL Capital and Little outlined above. Further, investors have requested repayment of funds invested in respect of the DJL Capital Units offered by DJL Capital and Little or requested that DJL Capital repurchase the Units for the price paid by investors. DJL Capital and Little have not repaid funds or repurchased shares from investors.
