A Santa Fe Springs television studio with just one employee and reportedly no revenues faces allegations by the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission of illegally raising more than $1.2 million from nearly 700 investors through the sale of unregistered common stock.
A civil complaint from the SEC last week alleges Punch TV and its chief executive officer, Joseph Collins, the sole employee, violated federal registration provisions for stock offerings from January 2018 to June 2020.
“By not registering Punch TV’s offerings, defendants deprived investors of meaningful information that would be found in a registration statement that investors could use to assess the company’s prospects,” the complaint says.
The SEC is seeking unspecified monetary penalties against Collins and a court order prohibiting him from offering penny stocks.
Collins did not respond to emails seeking comment. Phone calls Tuesday to Punch TV’s studios at 11705 Willake St. in Santa Fe Springs went unanswered.
Punch TV, which was founded in 2014, had not licensed any of its content or generated any revenues and wasn’t engaged in production or broadcasting operations as of December 2020, according to the SEC.
The complaint alleges Punch TV’s unregistered offerings followed the company’s 2018 settlement of an SEC administrative order that suspended another illegal stock offering. That suspension order stopped Punch TV’s offering for nine months after the SEC found that the company failed to file audited financial statements and other reports required to offer and sell securities, according to the complaint.
“Despite the suspension order, defendants continued offering and selling Punch TV’s $1 share common stock in violation of the order and without satisfying any of the (federal) Securities Act registration offering exemptions,” the suit states.
From January 2018 to June 2020, Collins raised $681,924 from more than 660 investors by the sale of Punch TV’s $1 share common stock, according to the SEC.
Additionally, Collins embarked on an unregistered $5 share offering of Punch TV’s stock from March 2018 to April 2019 that allegedly generated $519,230 from 28 investors.
Collins touted the offerings through Punch TV’s website and various social media platforms, according to the SEC.
The complaint says Collins appeared in a February 2018 YouTube video titled, “Why Punch TV Studios will make a Billion Dollars,” which offered potential investors a chance to “Invest in the Magic.”
“The reason why I believe you should invest in Punch TV studios … is because we have a phenomenal business plan,” a narrator says in the video. “When we hit our revenue goals, your stock price has a very good chance of going up.”
SEC Charges Recidivist Tv Production Company and Its Founder and CEO with Offering and Selling Securities in Unregistered Offerings
The Securities and Exchange Commission announced today that it has filed an action against Santa Fe Springs, Calif.-based Punch TV Studios, Inc. and its founder and chief executive officer, Joseph Collins, alleging that they raised more than $1.2 million from nearly 700 investors through unregistered offerings of Punch TV's common stock.
According to the SEC's complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, from approximately January 2018 until June 2020, the defendants conducted two offerings of Punch TV's common shares that were neither registered with the SEC nor exempt from registration. The complaint alleges that those offerings took place shortly after Punch TV settled to an SEC order that halted a prior securities offering under Regulation A of the Securities Act and temporarily suspended its Regulation A exemption from registration, after Punch TV had repeatedly failed to comply with regulatory requirements. Following the settlement, Collins and Punch TV allegedly continued offering and selling Punch TV shares in violation of the order and without satisfying any registration offering exemptions.
The SEC's complaint, which charges the defendants with violating the securities registration provisions of Section 5(a) and (c) of the Securities Act of 1933, seeks injunctive relief, disgorgement plus interest, civil penalties, and penny stock bars.
The SEC's investigation was conducted by Lucee Kirka and Carol Kim, and was supervised by Robert Conrrad of the SEC's Los Angeles Regional Office. The litigation is being conducted by Amy Longo.

Opened wide, practically opening your crotch. I took a seat on the sidelines so that I could see you well. A young waiter quickly ran up to you, you made an order. He held his gaze on your chest, admired the legs and, blushing, ran away. I ordered a whiskey.

Why the hell did I go there. But ask. Certainly not for medicine. I went there because of a pharmacist, or rather a pharmacist, with whom I fell head over heels in love.PART 1: Review of Punch TV Studios IPO and penny stocks
Attention, and seemed brooding and even angry. Either because she didnt like the company, or that she lost Mishkas attention, or she was bored without Sergei Borisovich. "Here again now he will pester him, bitch!" Jealousy overwhelmed me again, although a little softer, because he had just had sex with me. With me, not with a curvy beauty.
I smiled into my cam: why, he was leaving on purpose.
