14:50 EDTMHGC, MSMorgans Hotel retains Morgan Stanley to assist in review of alternatives
Morgans Hotel Group (MHGC) disclosed that at the beginning of the year, the Morgans Board of Directors formed a special transaction committee to evaluate a full range of alternatives, including the potential sale or merger of the Company. Earlier this month the committee retained Morgan Stanley & Co. (MS) as its financial advisor to assist the company in exploring a full range of strategic alternatives. Jason T. Kalisman, Morgans' Chairman of the Board, stated: "As fiduciaries, Morgans' Board is committed to maximizing value for our stockholders and, as we have consistently stated, the Board is constantly exploring all opportunities to do what is right for all stockholders. This has always included evaluating transactions as large as a potential sale or merger but undertaken from a position of strength and flexibility. The engagement of Morgan Stanley to assist the committee in its strategic review allows the committee to draw on the insight and experience of a leading investment bank. Our stockholders have voiced their desire to know where the Board stands on these issues, and thus we felt it appropriate to share the fact that we had already taken the step of retaining advisors as we undergo the strategic review process."

09:32 EDTMSMorgan Stanley fined $2M by FINRA for short interest reporting, rule violations
FINRA announced that it has fined Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC $2M for short interest reporting and short sale rule violations that spanned a period of more than six years, and for failing to implement a supervisory system reasonably designed to detect and prevent such violations. FINRA found that Morgan Stanley, over several years, failed to completely and accurately report its short interest positions in certain securities involving billions of shares. FINRA also found that the firm's supervisory system was deficient because it failed to detect and prevent these violations over an extended period of time. FINRA found that over a seven-year period, Morgan Stanley included positions from the accounts of non-broker-dealer affiliates in a number of aggregation units when determining each unit's net position. FINRA also found that the firm's supervisory system was not reasonably designed to detect and prevent such violations. In concluding this settlement, Morgan Stanley neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
