The above order has been passed by Shri G.Anantharaman,Whole Time Member, SEBI in the following context:

Millennium is a small cap company whose financial performance has consistently been lacklustre through five quarters ended September 30, 2005. Its share price which was ruling around Rs. 18 and Rs. 23 during the period June 2004 to March 2005 suddenly rose at the level of Rs. 66 during the end of May 2005. The share price suddenly exhibited a spurt which took the price from around Rs. 65 to Rs. 240 between June 1, 2005 and September 30, 2005. The rise in the share price was also accompanied by an increase in the trading volumes. The share prices are currently hovering around Rs. 2.49 (face value of Re 1/-). The sudden transient spurt in the share price, without a backup of commensurate financial performance and absence of any positive corporate announcements makes the rise appear artificial.�
 
The promoters of the company have offloaded shares during the period of the price rise both through market as well as through a web of off market transactions in a cosy arrangement between a set of interconnected clients. All these clients have also appeared in the orders passed by SEBI in the case of IFSL Ltd, Mega Corporation Ltd. and Karuna Cables Ltd. bringing out their involvement in the trading in such scrips. Clearly there appears to be an elaborate and crafty scheme designed by a set of people, collectively and carefully masterminding the manipulation of shares of low cap companies at the cost of the lay investors. The artifice employed by the promoters in the case of Millennium Cybertech Ltd. appears to have been a standard one followed in the case of several small cap companies viz IFSL Ltd, Mega Corporation Ltd. and Karuna Cables Ltd. against which SEBI has already passed orders. It has all the ingredients of a penny stock manipulation.
