FINRA announced that it has fined 10 firms a total of $43.5M for allowing their equity research analysts to solicit investment banking business and for offering favorable research coverage in connection with the 2010 planned initial public offering of Toys"R"Us. FINRA fined the following firms. Barclays Capital (BCS) - $5M; Citigroup Global Markets (C) $ 5M; Credit Suisse Securities (CS) $5M; Goldman, Sachs & Co. (CS) $5M; JP Morgan Securities LLC (JPM) $5M; Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. (DB) $4M; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. (BAC) $4M; Morgan Stanley & Co., LLC (MS) $4M; Wells Fargo Securities, LLC (WFC) $4M; Needham & Company LLC $2.5M. In addition, FINRA found that six of the 10 firms Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Needham had inadequate supervisory procedures related to research analyst participation in investment banking pitches. Toys"R"Us and its sponsors offered each of the 10 firms various roles in the IPO but it eventually decided not to proceed with the offering. In settling this matter, the 10 firms neither admitted nor denied the charges, but consented to the entry of FINRA's findings.
