INVESTOR ALERT – ROYAL SECURITIES CORP. and
NINGYUAN (MARK) GUO


TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is alerting investors not to purchase securities from Royal Securities Corp. or its principal, Ningyuan Guo, also known as Mark Guo.

Effective July 15, 2011, the OSC suspended the registration of Royal Securities Corp. and of Mr. Guo. This means that Royal Securities Corp. and Mr. Guo are no longer permitted to sell securities to investors, buy securities for investors, or advise investors about buying, selling, holding or investing in securities. They are also prohibited from managing investment portfolios.

For more information, see “In the Matter of the Registration of Royal Securities Corp. and Ningyuan Guo also known as Mark Guo” dated July 15, 2011, which is available in the “Dealers, Advisers and Investment Fund Managers” section of the OSC website at www.osc.gov.on.ca.

If you have any questions or information relating to this matter, please contact the OSC Contact Centre at 416-593-8314 or toll free at 1-877-785-1555.

Under section 28 of the Securities Act (Ontario), the OSC may suspend the registration of an individual or a firm if we have serious concerns about their continued fitness for registration, or if we determine that it is no longer in the public interest that they be registered.

The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices and to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in capital markets. Investors are urged to check the registration of any person or company offering an investment opportunity and to review the OSC’s investor materials available at www.osc.gov.on.ca.
