09:06 EDTMHFISEC announces charges against S&P for fraudulent ratings misconduct
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced a series of federal securities law violations by Standard & Poorís Ratings Services involving fraudulent misconduct in its ratings of certain commercial mortgage-backed securities. S&P agreed to pay more than $58M to settle the SECís charges, plus an additional $19M to settle parallel cases announced by the New York Attorney Generalís office -- $12M -- and the Massachusetts Attorney Generalís office -- $7M. The SEC issued three orders instituting settled administrative proceedings against S&P. One order, in which S&P made certain admissions, addressed S&Pís practices in its conduit fusion CMBS ratings methodology. S&Pís public disclosures affirmatively misrepresented that it was using one approach when it actually used a different methodology in 2011 to rate six conduit fusion CMBS transactions and issue preliminary ratings on two more transactions. As part of this settlement, S&P agreed to take a one-year timeout from rating conduit fusion CMBS. In a separate order instituting a litigated administrative proceeding, the SEC Enforcement Division alleges that the former head of S&Pís CMBS Group fraudulently misrepresented the manner in which the firm calculated a critical aspect of certain CMBS ratings in 2011. Barbara Duka allegedly instituted the shift to more issuer-friendly ratings criteria, and the firm failed to properly disclose the less rigorous methodology. The matter against Duka will be scheduled for a public hearing before an administrative law judge for proceedings to adjudicate the Enforcement Divisionís allegations and determine what, if any, remedial actions are appropriate.
