In the fall of 2021, DC Solar owner Jeff Carpoff was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison in connection with defrauding investors (and taxpayers) out of over $2B through a Ponzi scheme involving favorable tax credits that incentivize investments in sustainable energy. The fraud, described by the Department of Justice as "the largest criminal fraud scheme in the history of the Eastern District of California" was uncovered shortly after a Christmas 2018 government raid on DC Solar's headquarters which caused the company to enter chapter 11 early in 2019.
This program will explore the ethical issues created by such a scenario as well as governance and best practices challenges. Specific topics will include the use of independent directors, a chief restructuring officer, DIP financing and government forfeiture of collateral and forensic strategies. A cautionary tale for all—you should make time for this program.
