Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In MasTec, Inc. (MTZ) To Contact The Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in MasTec, Inc. (“MasTec” or the “Company”) (NYSE: MTZ) of the July 6, 2015 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against MasTec and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed in the Southern District of Florida on behalf of all persons who purchased or acquired MasTec securities between August 12, 2014 and March 17, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its internal control over financial reporting.
Specifically, the action alleges that during the Class Period, the Company failed to disclose that: (1) certain cost to complete estimates recognized during the third quarter of 2014, currently believed to be in the range of zero to $13 million, should have been recognized during the second quarter of 2014; and (2) MasTec’s internal control over financial reporting was ineffective.
On March 2, 2015, MasTec notified the SEC that it would delay the filing of its annual report for the period ended December 31, 2014 through the submission of a Form 12b-25. Then on March 17, 2015, the Company announced a further delay in the filing as a result of an ongoing independent internal investigation.
Following this news, the price of MasTec stock declined by $1.88, or over 9.5%, to close at $17.82 on March 18, 2015.
