(“Pingtan” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: PME) of the January 23, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Pingtan and certain executives of the Company.
A complaint has been filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all persons who purchased Pingtan common stock between May 14, 2013 and November 6, 2014 (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its statements concerning its business, operations, and prospects.
Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, Pingtan misrepresented and/or failed to disclose it had engaged in related party transactions.
On November 6, 2014, the Company announced that it would restate previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2013, and for the quarters ended March 31, 2013, June 2013, March 31, 2014, and June 2014.
Following this news, the price of Pingtan’s stock declined by $0.09 per share, or nearly 7%, to close on November 7, 2014 at $1.20 per share.
