Martin Shkreli charged Retrophin for everything from his Starbucks coffee to a casino trip, according to an accountant who reviewed the start-up’s finances as it prepared to go public and described them as “chaotic”.
Shkreli, who ran Retrophin from 2011 to 2014, put his sister on the company payroll, charged a $US4130 ($5303) trip to the Borgata casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on his corporate credit card, and gave himself a lump sum payment of $US575,000 identified as “compensation”, accountant Corey Massella told federal jurors at Shkreli’s criminal fraud trial in Brooklyn, New York.
