Crazy Eddie was a consumer electronics chain located primarily in the Northeastern United States- previously called ERS Electronics (ERS stood for Eddie, Rose and Sam – Eddie’s parents). It was started in 1971 in Brooklyn, New York, by businessmen Eddie and Sam M. Antar. The chain rose to prominence throughout the Tri-State Region as much for its prices as for its memorable radio and television commercials, featuring a frenetic, "crazy" character promoting the stores (Crazy Eddie spokesman played by radio DJ Jerry Carrol). At its peak, Crazy Eddie had 43 stores in four states, and earned more than $300 million in sales.[1] Image File history File links Crazy_eddie_logo. ...

In February 1987, the United States Attorney's Office for the District of New Jersey commenced a federal grand jury investigation into the financial activities of Crazy Eddie.

Unable to sustain his fraudulent business practices, co-founder Eddie Antar cashed in millions of dollars worth of stock and resigned from the company in December 1986. Crazy Eddie's board of directors approved the sale of the company in November 1987. The entire Antar family was immediately removed from the business. The new owners quickly discovered the true extent of the Antar family's fraud, but were unable to turn around Crazy Eddie's quickly declining fortunes. In 1989, the company declared bankruptcy and was liquidated. The United States Constitution (Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4), authorizes Congress to enact uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States. ...

Eddie Antar became the focus of SEC and Federal investigations, and was eventually charged with a series of crimes. Antar fled to Israel in February 1990, but was returned to the United States in January 1993 to stand trial. His 1993 conviction on fraud charges was overturned, but he eventually pleaded guilty in 1996. In 1997, Antar was sentenced to eight years in prison and received massive fines.


Franchise history


Eddie’s grandparents, Murad and Terah Antar, who were ethnically Syrian Jews, moved to New York from Aleppo, Syria. Murad and Terah worked in their market stalls alongside Arabs, Egyptians, other Syrians, and Turks. Eddie's father Sam Antar was a retailer, and it was no surprise to the family that Eddie followed in his father's and grandparents' footsteps.[2] Syrian Jews derive their origin from two groups: those who inhabited the region of todays Syria from the ancient times and those Sephardim who fled to Syria after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain (1492 AD). ...

The predecessor to Crazy Eddie was a consumer electronics store called Sight && Sound. It was a property of ERS Electronics, a company owned by Sam M. Antar, his son Eddie Antar, and Eddie's cousin Ronnie Gindi. Sight and Sound, located on Kings Highway in Brooklyn, opened its doors in 1969 and offered electronics at regular prices. Due to his extremely aggressive sales techniques, Eddie quickly became known as "Crazy Eddie." Despite his technique, within 18 months the store (as well as Eddie and Ronnie) was nearly bankrupt.[2]

Sam M. bought out Gindi's one-third ownership stake of Sight and Sound, and essentially turned the store over to Eddie (Sam M. retained his one-third stake but left the day-to-day operations to Eddie). Eddie opened a new store in 1971, just a few blocks from Sight and Sound's old location, and called it Crazy Eddie’s Ultra Linear Sound Experience. Eddie continued his high-pressure sales tactics at the new store, but this time met with success. In 1973, Antar opened the second Crazy Eddie location. A third followed in 1975, located in Manhattan. That year, Antar established a corporate headquarters.[2] For other uses, see Manhattan (disambiguation). ...

An essential part of Crazy Eddie's success was its advertising campaign. In 1972, WPIX-FM late-night disc jockey Jerry "Dr. Jerry" Carroll ended a live commercial with the now-famous slogan, "Crazy Eddie, his prices are IN-SA-A-A-A-A-ANE!" Antar called in and told Carroll to say the line the same way every time.[2] WQCD, known on-air as CD 101. ... For other meanings of DJ, see DJ (disambiguation). ...

Beginning in 1975, Carroll starred in a series of humorous television commercials, each ending with the same frenetic slogan. Among the more memorable promotions featured by Crazy Eddie was the annual "Christmas in August" sale.[2] In the 1980s, more than 7,500 unique radio and television ads were aired in the Tri-State Region. Carroll's acting was so convincing, and he became so identified with the company that many people thought he was actually Crazy Eddie.[1][3] For other uses, see Christmas (disambiguation). ...

Almost from the beginning, Crazy Eddie's management was engaged in various forms of fraud. The Antars paid employees off the books, and regularly skimmed thousands of dollars (in cash) earned at the stores. For every $5 Crazy Eddie reported as income, $1 was taken by the Antars. In 1979, the Antars began depositing much of this money (hundreds of thousands of dollars) in Israeli bank accounts. The Antar family skimmed an estimated $3-$4 million (US) per year at the height of their fraud. In one offshore bank account, the family deposited more than $6 million between 1980 and 1983.[2] For other uses, see Cash (disambiguation). ...

In preparation for taking Crazy Eddie public, Eddie Antar initiated a scheme in 1979 to skim less each year. Since more income was actually being reported, this had the effect of showing drastically increasing profit margins. While the company's actual profits (taking into account skimmed profits) from 1980 to 1983 increased approximately 13%, reported profits rose nearly 37%.[4] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Despite the misgivings of people closely associated with Crazy Eddie, the company held its initial public offering on September 13, 1984 (symbol: CRZY). Shares of the company sold initially for $8. By early 1986, Crazy Eddie stock was trading at more than $75 per share (split adjusted).[1] “IPO” redirects here. ... is the 256th day of the year (257th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Eddie recruited his nephew, Sam E. Antar (known as Sammy), to assist the company with its fraud. Sammy earned a degree in accounting in 1980, and served his apprenticeship with Penn and Horowitz, Crazy Eddie's auditor. In 1986, he was named CFO of the company. Sammy was informed that there was a $3 million deficit from the previous year's inventory fraud that needed to be hidden. Additionally, he was instructed to find ways to show a $10 million growth in sales.[2] Accountancy (profession) or accounting (methodology) is the measurement, disclosure or provision of assurance about financial information primarily used by managers, investors, tax authorities and other decision makers to make resource allocation decisions within companies, organizations, and public agencies. ... “CFO” redirects here. ...

One of Sammy's major schemes was a money laundering operation later known as the Panama Pump — money that the Antars had deposited in Israeli banks was transferred to bank accounts in Panama. These accounts, opened under false names, then drafted payments to Crazy Eddie. This money was largely used to inflate same-store sales figures for the company.[2] Money laundering is the practice of engaging in financial transactions in order to conceal the identity, source and destination of the money in question. ...

As the skimming decreased, Eddie and Sammy engaged in increasing amounts of inventory fraud. For the fiscal year ended March 1, 1986, Crazy Eddie falsified store level inventories by $3 to $4 million. The next fiscal year, that amount increased to between $15 and $20 million. But by 1987, Sammy's goal was no longer to show profitability, but rather to cover up previous frauds.[2][4] is the 60th day of the year (61st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link displays 1986 Gregorian calendar). ...


As the company's fraud became harder to cover up, the public perception of Crazy Eddie as a commercial success began to change. By October 1986, the company's stock value had dropped to $17.50 per share. In December, Eddie Antar announced his resignation as president and CEO. In April 1987, it was announced that Eddie had in fact retained his role as president but had fired, among others, his father Sam M. Antar. But by then Eddie had already cashed out his share of Crazy Eddie stock, worth between $25 and $30 million.[2]

By the spring of 1987, the company's stock had plummeted below $10 a share. Additionally, earnings fell 20 percent from the previous year. The franchise did show a 34 percent sales increase, but this was mainly the result of 13 new store openings.[2] In May 1987, Eddie began proceedings to take the company private again.[5] The term privately held company refers to ownership of a business company in two different ways—first, referring to ownership by non-governmental organizations; and second, referring to ownership of the companys stock by a relatively small number of holders who do not trade the stock publicly. ...

Before that could happen, Houston-based businessman Elias Zinn and management consultant Victor Palmieri initiated a hostile takeover. With Palmieri's backing, Zinn purchased $17.5 million worth of Crazy Eddie stock, which represented 7½ percent of the outstanding shares. Once rumors of a takeover started, financial analysts began to more closely examine Crazy Eddie's financial situation. What they discovered was that while most stockholders in the company had lost money since 1984, Eddie Antar had sold 6.5 million shares worth $74 million. A flurry of stockholder lawsuits was filed against the Antar family.[2] “Houston” redirects here. ... A takeover in business refers to one company (the acquirer, or bidder) purchasing another (the target). ...

Eddie and Sammy briefly attempted to counter-offer Zinn's takeover, but Zinn quickly topped their funds. The Antars' bid was dropped, and Zinn became the new owner of Crazy Eddie on November 6, 1987. He immediately removed the rest of the Antar family from any positions of power. When Palmieri's financial analysts completed their preliminary audit, a few weeks after the takeover, they estimated that Crazy Eddie's inventory was short by $40 to $50 million. The final figure was $80 million.[2][5] is the 310th day of the year (311th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1987 (MCMLXXXVII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link displays 1987 Gregorian calendar). ...

Legal battles

In the meantime, a longtime Crazy Eddie associate named Arnie Spindler, who was himself under investigation by the SEC, had provided investigators with information concerning Crazy Eddie's fraudulent business practices. Spindler implicated Eddie and Sammy, but stated the rest of the family was clean. Regardless, the SEC served subpoenas to the entire Antar family.[2] “Securities and Exchange Commission” redirects here. ... A subpoena is a command to appear at a certain time and place to give testimony upon a certain matter. ...

By June 1988, Crazy Eddie's suppliers were demanding the liquidation of the company, so they could recover $860,000 owed to them.[2] On June 21, 1989, Crazy Eddie filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.[6] Numerous store closings soon followed. Based on information gathered over the course of its investigation, the SEC charged Eddie Antar with securities fraud and illegal insider trading on September 6, 1989.[7] In January 1990, a Federal district judge ordered Antar to repatriate more than $50 million he had illegally transferred to Israel. He was also ordered to appear in court to explain what had happened with the money. When he failed to appear, an arrest warrant was issued. Antar surrendered to U.S. Marshals a week later, but was released and ordered to appear at a second hearing. When he failed to appear at that hearing, a second arrest warrant was issued and his assets were frozen.[2] Liquidation, or winding up, refers to a business whose assets are converted to money in order to pay off debt. ... is the 172nd day of the year (173rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Antar fled to Israel using a fake passport and the alias David Jacob Levi Cohen, and purchased a townhouse in the city of Yavne. After Eddie left the country, Sammy offered to testify for Federal prosecutors in exchange for immunity. He avoided jail time for his testimony, and was instead sentenced to six months of house arrest, 1,200 hours of community service, three years of probation, and was given more than $10,000 in fines.[2][8] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (487x630, 229 KB) Summary Images of the 1990 arrest warrant issued for Crazy Eddie co-founder Eddie Antar. ...

Antar was arrested near Tel Aviv in June 1992. While being held in Israel, Antar was charged with Federal racketeering conspiracy. He was extradited to the United States in January 1993, and pled not guilty to the charges brought against him. Antar's fraud trial began in June, and was prosecuted jointly by U.S. Attorneys Paul Weissman and Michael Chertoff. On July 20, 1993, Eddie Antar was found guilty on 17 counts of fraud. His brother, Mitchell, was found guilty on three counts, and acquitted on two.[2] Tel-Aviv was founded on empty dunes north of the existing city of Jaffa. ...

In April 1994, Eddie Antar was sentenced to 12½ years in prison for racketeering and stock fraud. Antar's lawyers immediately filed an appeal, citing what they believed was bias on the part of the presiding judge. In April 1995, the verdicts against Eddie and Mitchell were overturned by a Federal appeals panel. Chertoff, calling Eddie "the Darth Vader of capitalism," vowed to begin a new trial.[2] Darth Vader is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ...

Antar eventually pled guilty to Federal fraud charges in May 1996. In February 1997, he was sentenced to eight years in prison. He was ordered to pay more than $150 million in fines, in addition to the more than $1 billion in judgments against him, stemming from various civil suits. Efforts to recover additional money from the Antar family on behalf of defrauded stockholders continue to this day.[2]

Revival attempt

In 1998, the grandchildren of Eddie, Allen, and Mitchell Antar revived the Crazy Eddie electronics chain with a store in Wayne, New Jersey, and as an online Internet venue.[9] However, in 2004 Crazy Eddie went out of business again. The Crazy Eddie trademark and associated intellectual property were then acquired by Texas-based firm Trident Growth Fund.[3] In July 2006, Trident attempted to auction off the brand and the domain name crazyeddie.com on eBay, to limited success.[3] The auction ended without the reserve price being met, the highest bid being $30,100 (US).
