- (A) directing the person to cease and desist from continuing the act or practice;

with the administrator for examination and review 10 working days before a distribution to shareholders; and

of an untrue or misleading statement prohibited under AS 45.55.160
- (2) bring an action in the superior court to enjoin the acts or practices and to enforce compliance with this chapter or
regulation or order under this chapter, and upon a proper showing, the appropriate remedy must be granted and a

administrator to post a bond.
- (b) The administrator may issue an order against an applicant, registered person, or other person who knowingly or
intentionally violates this chapter or a regulation or order of the administrator under this chapter, imposing a civil
penalty of not more than $2,500 for a single violation, or not more than $25,000 for multiple violations, in a single
proceeding or a series of related proceedings.
- (c) For violations not covered by (b) of this section, the administrator may issue an order against an applicant,
registered person, or other person who violates this chapter or a regulation or order of the administrator under this
chapter, imposing a civil penalty of not more than $500 for a single violation, or not more than $5,000 for multiple

- (d) Before issuing an order under (a)(1), (b), or (c) of this section, the administrator shall give reasonable notice of

pending the hearing, which remains in effect until 10 days after the hearing is held and which becomes final if the

exhausted, the administrator may petition the superior court to enter a judgment against a person who is a respondent
in the order for the amount of the civil penalty levied against the person. Subject to AS 44.62.570

court orders otherwise. A judgment entered under this subsection may be executed on and levied under in the manner
provided in AS 09.35.
