Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Substantial Losses Investing In Ambow Education Holding Ltd. To Contact the Firm
Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Ambow Education Holding Ltd (“Ambow” or the “Company”) (NYSE: AMBO).
The investigation focuses on whether Ambow and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that: (1) certain of the Ambow’s distributors lacked a track record for making timely payment; (2) the collection of receivables from the Company’s distributors was not reasonably assured; (3) the Company was improperly recognizing revenue on sales to these distributors; (4) the Company was improperly accounting for certain business acquisitions; and (5) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls.
On April 30, 2012, Ambow announced that it would be unable to timely file its Annual Report on Form 20-F with the Securities and Exchange Commission for the 2011 fiscal year (the “2011 Annual Report”). Thereafter, on May 16, 2012, Ambow disclosed that the Company was further delaying the filing of its 2011 Annual Report. As a result of this news, the Company’s shares declined $0.99 per share, or 17.55%, to close at $4.65 per share on May 16, 2012.
