Navagate’s Gregory Rorke Allegedly Made False and Misleading Statements in Order to Move Shares

investor rights attorneyThe Peiffer Rosca Wolf investment fraud attorneys are currently investigating Gregory Rorke, 60, and of Bronxville, New York, regarding alleged false and misleading statements made from the sale of Notes for Navagate.

From December 2009 through March of 2011, Rorke, a former adjunct professor at Columbia Business School, allegedly misled potential clients regarding the inherent risks of investing in short-term notes of Navagate, according to SEC documents currently being reviewed by attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer.

The SEC documents further allege that Navagate, a tech start-up claiming to sell sales force automation software, and Rorke, the co-founder, chief executive, and principal owner of Navagate, made a number of false and misleading statements specifically detailing the assets purporting to guarantee the Notes and Navagate’s tax liabilities.

Rorke Allegedly Claimed to Own $12 Million in Assets

Rorke allegedly signed a personal guarantee to investors supported by a financial statement which falsely indicated that he personally had a stake of at least $12 million in assets, including more than $1 million in cash, more than $5 million in securities, and a home worth more than $1 million, according to SEC documents currently being reviewed by attorneys Alan Rosca and Joe Peiffer.

In addition, the SEC documents further allege that Rorke made false statements regarding payments to the IRS, and that he had made a business deal with a representative of Hong Kong Shanghai Bank Corporation.

As a result, the SEC alleges that Rorke violated multiple SEC Rules.
