On July 9, 2020, Khushal entered into Minutes of Settlement and Undertaking with respect to the matters in the Notice of Proposal. Pursuant to the Minutes of Settlement and Undertaking, Khushal agreed to pay administrative penalties in the total amount of $5,000.
On August 6, 2020, Khushal withdrew the Request for Hearing, and on August 10, 2020, the Tribunal closed its file in respect of this matter. Therefore, pursuant to section 441.3(7) of the Act, and by delegated authority from the Chief Executive Officer, the Executive Vice President, Market Conduct makes the following order.
