PetroChina Co. Ltd. (PTR)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In PetroChina Co. Ltd. To Contact The Firm

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at PetroChina Co. Ltd. (“PetroChina” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PTR).

The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies.  Specifically, the investigation focuses on whether PetroChina issued materially false and misleading financial statements due to non-compliance with the Company’s corporate governance directives and code of ethics.

On August 27, 2013, PetroChina announced that it was informed that three executives are under investigation by authorities of the PRC and had resigned.  It was further reported by the State-Owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, which oversees China’s state companies, that the three executives were under investigation for “severe breaches of discipline.” 

Following this news, the Company’s stock declined by $3.92 or 3.5%.
