All Day NCCP9030 - The Future of Blueprint Reading (Multi-Day Event)
The word "blueprint" makes us think of white line drawings on a deep blue background showing beautiful old buildings, or ships, or historic city plans. This introductory course visits the development of blueprints within the construction industry, and shows the student what to expect in a contemporary construction drawing set, and how to understand scale and symbols in drawings. There is hands-on experience with drawing simple scaled drawings.

12:00 PM - 2:30 PM Carson Block: The Man Behind Muddy Waters

About the Speaker

Carson Block is director of research and founding partner of Muddy Waters Research LLC. Muddy Waters is a due diligence-based investment and research firm that conducts extensive accounting and on-the-ground investigations of public companies.  Bloomberg Markets Magazine named Mr. Block as one of the “50 Most Influential in Global Finance” in 2011.  In 2012, Muddy Waters received the Financial Times Boldness in Business Award.

FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC with prior registration.

Muddy Waters gained fame following its research on Sino-Forest Corp., a China-based forestry company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Shortly after Muddy Waters issued its report in June 2011, Sino-Forest lost nearly $6 billion in market capitalization, its auditor resigned, regulators halted its shares and charged former management with fraud. The company filed for bankruptcy and in June 2012, the Ontario Securities Commission filed formal fraud charges against Sino-Forest and its senior management for overstating its timber assets and misleading investigators.  In total, Muddy Waters has issued 10 “strong sell” recommendations resulting more than $8 billion of downward market cap adjustments, four de-listings and at least six regulatory investigations into company managements.

Mr. Block appears frequently as a commentator on Bloomberg Television, CNBC and the BBC. He has written op-eds in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and New York Times on various topics related to improving corporate governance and market transparency..    

Prior to forming Muddy Waters, Mr. Block was an entrepreneur in China and worked as a lawyer in the Shanghai office of the U.S. law firm Jones Day. In 2007, he co-authored Doing Business in China for Dummies, a primer on doing business in China.  He holds a B.S. in business from the University of Southern California and a J.D. from the Chicago-Kent College of Law, where he has also served as an adjunct professor.

About Muddy Waters Research

Muddy Waters, LLC is a pioneer in on-the-ground, freely published investment research. Muddy Waters peels back the layers, often built up by seemingly respected but sycophantic law firms, auditors, and venal managements. Muddy Waters prides itself on being able to assess a company’s true worth, and being able to see through the opacity and hype that some managements create.  Its research approach is to combine diverse talents, including accountants, trained investigators, valuation experts and entrepreneurs, many of whom have hands-on experience running businesses in the U.S. and emerging markets.

Muddy Waters produces three types of research product: Business fraud, accounting fraud, and fundamental problems. Business fraud reports focus on issuers that have massively overstated their revenues. Accounting fraud reports expose businesses that boost profits through fraud. Fundamental problem reports discuss opaque businesses that have serious fundamental problems that the market does not yet perceive.
