Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Substantial Losses Investing In Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc. To Contact the Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities violations at Ignite Restaurant Group (“Ignite” or the “Company”) (NasdaqGS: IRG).
On July 18, 2012, Ignite announced that following an internal assessment of its lease accounting policies, the Company corrected non-cash related errors related to its accounting treatment of certain leases. As a follow-up to this review, the Company stated that it would commence a thorough review of its historical accounting for fixed assets and related depreciation expenses from past periods when Ignite was a private company.
Following the completion of its internal accounting review, the Company, with the concurrence of its independent registered public accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, announced that it would restate its previously issued financial statements for years 2009 through 2011 and for the first quarter of 2012. On this news, Ignite shares plummeted by over 20% to close at $15.15 per share on July 19, 2012, representing a loss of nearly $100 million in shareholder value. The shares dropped an additional 7% on July 20, 2012.
