Mike Shustek, Vestin's chairman and chief executive officer, said in a prepared statement that Vestin has recently settled "an administrative issue" with the Nevada Mortgage Lending Division, which found that the company did not have any "direct administrative violations." He added that Vestin has "fully complied with SEC disclosure requirements" and is "cooperating fully with this informal inquiry."
