Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited To Contact The Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited (“Longwei” or the “Company”) (NYSE: LPH).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) a material related party investment in a tourism business involving CEO Cai had taken place; (2) CEO Cai was a minority owner of Longwei's subsidiaries; and (3) Longwei's wholesale fuel sales have been vastly exaggerated.
On January 3, 2013, securities research blog Geoinvesting.com published a report revealing serious discrepancies between what Longwei had described as its business condition and the actual facts on the ground. Geoinvesting's public disclosure of fraud at Longwei caused Longwei's stock to fall more than 70% on January 3, 2013. Since the announcement, trading in Longwei stock has been halted.
