INVESTOR ALERT – BLUEPORT CAPITAL CORP. and
TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is alerting investors not to purchase securities from Blueport Capital Corp. or its principal, John Hare.
Effective December 13, 2011, OSC staff suspended the registration of Blueport Capital Corp. and of Mr. Hare. A suspension means that Blueport Capital Corp. and Mr. Hare may no longer sell securities to investors.
The decision to suspend the registration of Blueport Capital Corp. and of Mr. Hare was communicated orally during proceedings held at the offices of the OSC on Tuesday, December 13, 2011. It is anticipated that written reasons for the decision will be prepared and published on the OSC website.
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), OSC staff 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.
