The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced charges against Brian Marc Rubin of Deerfield, Illinois, for insider trading in stock options of Array BioPharma Inc. in advance of an announcement that Pfizer, Inc. was acquiring Array via a tender offer.
The SEC’s complaint, filed in federal court in Illinois, alleges that Rubin unlawfully traded Array stock options based on material, nonpublic information about the acquisition that he learned about and then misappropriated from his spouse, who worked at Array. The SEC’s complaint further alleges that Rubin traded the Array stock options prior to the announcement of the acquisition, and as a result made illegal profits of $90,458.
