According to SEC Filings, Alien Technology Corporation filed a Form D in 2008 to raise capital.
The Trouble with Reg D Private Placements
Private placements are a means for smaller companies to raise capital through the sale of equity or debt securities without having to register their securities with the SEC. These investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors.
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling alternative investment products like Alien Technology Corporation to their clients.
Despite the risks of investing in this type of alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.
If you have concerns regarding your investment in Alien Technology Corporation or another private placement investment and would like to speak with a securities attorney about your options, please call The White Law Group at 888-637-5510.
