The reason for the suspension was the usual boilerplate about innacurate information and potentially manipulative activity:
The Commission temporarily suspended trading in the securities of GEFI because of concerns regarding the accuracy and adequacy of information in the marketplace and potentially manipulative activity related to GEFI common stock.

Continuing a recent trend of increased activity by FINRA, the SEC acknowledged FINRA’s assistance (above).
