Investors Capital Founder Heads For A $19 Million Exit ... But Who's The Buyer?

Ted Charles, founder of Massachusetts broker-dealer Investors Capital, has filed the paperwork to unwind his entire 55% stake in the company he built into a 500-rep kingdom -- at a discount.

Charles registered the 3.6 million shares he controls -- counting friends and family and friendly foundation shares -- in Investors Capital's holding company for sale last week

 

The filing targets a maximum price of $5.275 per share, which would represent at least a 9% discount to its current price of $5.80.

 

In all, Charles might net up to $19 million from the company he built. 

 

The question is who is buying and why Charles is selling. As reps have noted, Investors Capital got a subpoena about a year ago over its private placement activities along with now-defunct QA3, which saw private placement fines destroy its equity.
