NAME: In the Matter of Robert Testa 1993 SEC LEXIS 2473 (September 29, 1993) FACTS : The principal of EMX, a development stage corporation, created EMF L.P. (EMF) to serve as a financing vehicle for EMX. EMF hired a registered broker-dealer (the “selling agent”) to raise funds by selling limited partnership. Testa, the principal of EMX, assisted the broker- dealer in drafting a solicitation letter and arranged to have the letter mailed using a commercial mailing list of between 80,000 and 95,000 physicians, which resulted in the sale of a fractional limited partnership unit. Nearby 2,500 of the physicians who received the solicitation letter returned the reply card requesting additional information. Each of them was sent by the selling agent a package of materials, including offering materials for investment in EMF limited units. One-half of a limited partnership unit was subscribed for by an investor initially contacted through the solicitation letter. DISPOSITION OF LOWER COURTS: ISSUES: Whether Testa violated Sections 5(a) and 5(c) of the 1933 Act.
