Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: RLMD) Files Motion to Amend Complaint against Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd.

In a motion filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, Relmada Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: RLMD) (Relmada) has moved to amend its Complaint against the defendant Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd. (Laidlaw)and its Chief Executive Officer, Matthew D. Eitner and Managing Partner, James P. Ahern.

The Amended Complaint states that Laidlaw breached its fiduciary duty to Remalda by disclosing confidential information about Relmada which it had acquired while serving as Relmada’s investment banker. Relmada is also seeking to recover costs it sustained responding to a false and misleading statements in proxy materials filed by Laidlaw during Laidlaw’s attempt to take control of Relmada.

As a fiduciary Laidlaw owed Relmada the highest degree of care. That degree of care required Laidlaw to put Relmada’s interests above their own. Instead of fulfilling its fiduciary duty Laidlaw acted against Relmada’s interest and sought to advance its own. As a result of Laidlaw’s actions Relmada’s NASDAQ listing was materially and adversely affected.

Matthew Eitner, James Ahern and Laidlaw have a long history of unethical conduct as investment bankers. In particular, they have been sanctioned on numerous occasions for willful violations of securities laws. According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) an independent, not-for-profit organization authorized by Congress to protect America’s investors, Laidlaw has also entered into a letter of acceptance, waiver and consent pursuant to which Laidlaw admitted having created and distributed misleading, exaggerated and incomplete communications with the public. The State of Connecticut has also sanctioned Laidlaw for having filed false and misleading reports to the Bank Commissioner and violating Connecticut securities laws.

As these and other instances of malfeasance on the part of Laidlaw have surfaced it has become apparent that Laidlaw cannot be trusted to act in a way that benefits its clients. Instead, it has become apparent that Laidlaw only seeks its own benefits.

Dallas Bank Moves From Strength To Strength

It’s a good time to be Nexbank, not to mention one of its clients. This ambitious and profitable Texas financial institution announced in an early September press release that it was increasing the monetary amount of senior unsecured notes in private placement from $50,000,000 to $75,000,000. The bank intends to use the proceeds from this offering to expand the bank’s growth, and for its general corporate needs. These notes have a stable rating, and indicates strong interest and confidence in the company from both investors and clients. Another indicator of the bank’s strong position is a recent upgrade in its bond rating from “BBB-” to “BBB” by Kroll Bond Rating Agency. These unsecured notes will mature in 2026. Interest will be at a 5.05% fixed rate through 2021, followed by a floating rate to be determined by market.

NexBank Increases Senior Unsecured Notes Offering to $75 Million

In addition to being a strong investment partner, NexBank also provides commercial and mortgage banking services, largely in the business sector. The company acquired a banking charter in 1922, and opened its first bank in 1934 in Terrell, Texas. Called the Terrell Federal Savings and Loan Association, the company offered primarily insured saving accounts to clients. It underwent several name changes over the decades, and finally relocated its offices from Terrell to Dallas in 2004, and officially changed its name to NexBank in 2005 to reflect its growth and changes.

While NexBank has always offered savings and checking accounts in addition to offering loans, this institution also now handles company mergers and acquisitions and treasury management, in addition to corporate banking. Businesses can also rely on NexBank for financial and advisory services and syndicated loan management. It also offers clients customized programs, investment banking opportunities, and land advisory oversight. While primarily in the Dallas area, NexBank recently expanded to the East Coast, with its purchase of College Savings Bank in Princeton, New Jersey.

Given this bank’s great rates, multiple investments opportunities, and safeguards to protect clients’ accounts, placing money with NexBank seems to be a wise decision, as it appears to be an institution with a strong enough foundation to support it and its clients for years to come.

George Soros Invests $500 Million To the Migrant crisis

George Soros has been in the news cycle during the year and with his $500 million gift to be used to benefit and ease the migration crisis, people are, finally, beginning to understand this man and what he represents. There had been more disinformation about George Soros in the past thanks to a disinformation campaign started within a fringe part of the Republican Party. The Republican efforts to discredit an honorable man should be soundly rebuked but in this society where money is power, that will not take place. The situation with Soros is similar to what took place with John Kerry in his run for the presidency. Kerry was a Naval officer in charge of a patrol boat in Vietnam; he received numerous decorations for valor and courage including the Purple Heart. At the end of the Vietnam War Kerry publicly returned his medals; stating the United States of America was wrong in its support of a corrupted South Vietnamese regime. After America had withdrawn its military support, the North Vietnamese took control of the country and made it a unified and communist country. For Kerry’s actions after the war, he was wrongly and falsely discredited by a campaign of misinformation, now called, “swiftboating” engineered by forces within the Republican party. At this point, George Soros helped to create a source to expose politically motivated lies and to report the truth. Snopes was started, which examines the facts and reports its findings to the public. This again was perceived by those on the far right, now called the alt-right, as an act of treason by Soros and they have made Snopes the enemy. But Soros is guided by a greater force learned from his days in the United Kingdom studying at the London school of Economics. Before he emigrated to New York to begin his financial career, Soros studied the work of Karl Popper who wrote The Open Society and Its Enemies. Soros was profoundly impressed by the book and would go on to name his foundation after Popper’s book.

Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930. He witnessed the occupation of Hungary first hand by the German forces and later would feel the impact of the liberating and occupying Russian Communist forces. He emigrated to London to study and would later live and work in the financial district of New York City. After working for several firms on Wall Street, he would begin his hedge fund, the Soros Fund, later renamed the Quantum Fund.

After making $1 billion in 1992, on a position betting against the British Sterling Pound, George Soros would turn his attention to philanthropy and started his Open Society Foundations that has continued to support after-school programs in New York City, aid for national disasters, funding for the arts, lending financial assistance to the Russian university system, fighting disease and combating “brain drain” in Eastern Europe, and lastly $500 million in support of the migration crisis on NY Books.

Stephen Murray – A Business Mind Ahead Of His Time

Stephen Murray, a well-known private equity investor, and philanthropist was born on August 2, 1962, in Brooklyn, New York. He spent his formative years in Westchester County, NY. After getting his Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College, he then went on to get his Masters of Business Administration degree at Columbia Business School. His career path started as those of most fresh graduates do. He got his first job in 1984 as a credit trainee at Hanover Trust Company based in New York. This seemingly humble career start led to Stephen Murray CCMP Capital discovering that had a gift for making deals. Within a short period, he rose to become the Vice-President of middle market lending.

In 1989, Stephen joined Manufacturers Hanover Equity Corporation, as part of their private equity and leveraged finance unit. It is during his tenure there that Chase Manhattan Group acquired this company, after which it merged with JP Morgan. This merger took place in 2000. It was not to last, though, as a few years later JP Morgan Partners (the bank’s buyout division) spun off to form Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. The spin-off, which took place on July 31, 2006, was necessary to prevent a potential conflict of interest between the bank’s buyout division and its clients.

Stephen Murray joined CCMP initially as a founding partner, and then went on to take over from Jeff Walker (who was also a founder of the group) as Chief Executive Officer. He remained at the helm of this company, both as CEO and President, until his departure in February 2015. Stephen was very instrumental in the success of CCMP Capital. Stephen Murray CCMP Capital’s most recent achievement was the raising of $3.6 billion for the company’s latest fund that happened five months before his departure. Stephen was responsible for making many ingenious investments and lucrative deals during his time at CCMP Capital. He also sat on boards of several companies, including Crestcom International, Inforgroup Inc., and several others.

In a sad and surprising twist, Stephen passed away a month later on March 12, 2015, due to health issues. He left behind his wife, Tami and four sons. Stephen loved his family very much, and he would frequently refer to them as his pride and joy. The world will remember him as a devoted husband, philanthropist, brilliant investor, and dealmaker. His philanthropic work took much of his time, talent, and resources, but he felt it was worth the sacrifice. Apart from supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, he also gave towards Boston College and Columbia Business School.

The legacy that Stephen Murray leaves behind is one of brilliance, shrewdness, commitment, and sacrifice, virtues that are essential for success in the business world.

Makari Skin Cream Needs To Be The Go To For A Woman With Troublesome Skin

A woman who has troublesome skin might have even given up on her skin just because it is such a problem. They are looking at their skin because they know that they want to have to do something about it, but they might not have any idea how they will do that. The only way to make things better is to be sure that they have taken a look at Makari, and they will find out that it can go on like any other kind of moisturizer. The only difference is that Makari will lighten skin and make it change color at the same time.

People who have dry skin already know that they have a lot of time to make up if they want to be sure that they can get the cream on every day. The Makari skin whitening cream is good because it will work on any one, and the skin cream is good because it can replace the creams that people have been using. That means that someone who already has a cream can move on to Makari, and that also means that someone who wants to be able to use the cream multiple times per day if they really want to.

The best thing that people can do is to try something new instead of giving up on their skin. They know that they skin is already not doing well, but they think that they can do something that will actually help them. They have that hope when they get the Makari skin cream, and they will see all their skin lighten up completely. This is good for people who have actually tanned too much, and it is important for people who have a lot of uneven skin because of a medical condition they cannot control.
