Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: ABR)

On November 16, 2023, Viceroy Research released a report entitled "Arbor Realty Trust - Slumlord Millionaires." In this report, Viceroy stated that it "[i]nvestors in bridge financing underwriters and their portfolios of loans appear to be [. . .] unprepared for the enormous wave of maturities which cannot be refinanced and are substantially all underwater. This is a bizarre deer in headlights situation we didn't ever expect to find." Further, Viceroy announced that it was "short Arbor Realty Trust" and that "[i]n this industry plagued with delusion and bad decisions, Arbor stands out as the worst of the worst. Viceroy's dive into Arbor's collateralized loan obligation facilities suggest its entire loan book is distressed and underlying collateral is vastly overstated."

On this news, the price of Arbor stock went down by $1.60 per share, or 11.56%, to close at $12.24 on November 16, 2023.

Brooge Energy Limited (NASDAQ: BROG)

On December 22, 2023, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announced fraud charges against Brooge, the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), Nicolaas Lammert Paardenkooper, and its former Chief Strategy Officer and Interim CEO, Lina Saheb. According to the SEC order, before and after going public through a special purpose acquisition transaction, Brooge misstated between 30 and 80 percent of its revenues from 2018 through early 2021 in SEC filings related to the offer and sale of up to $500 million of securities. Further, the order found that Brooge created false invoices to support inflating revenues from its oil facilities in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates by over $70 million over three years, and that Paardenkooper and Saheb knew, or were reckless in not knowing, of the fraud. The SEC order also found that Brooge provided these false invoices to its auditors to conceal the inflated revenue. In addition, according to the order, Brooge agreed during the SEC’s investigation not to issue the $500 million in securities.

On this news, the Company’s stock price fell sharply during intraday trading on December 22, 2023.
