The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased UEPS securities between September 12, 2018 and November 8, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Baldwin v. Net 1 UEPS Technologies, Inc. et al., No. 1:19-cv-11174 was filed on December 5, 2019 and has been assigned to Judge P. Kevin Castel.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose (1) the Company lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; (2) the Company had misclassified its investment in Cell C Proprietary Limited; (3) the Company's financial statements for the fiscal year 2018 were overstating its income; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
Specifically, on November 8, 2018, after the market close, UEPS filed a Form 8-K with the SEC under item 4.02(a) for non-reliance on previously issued financial. Therein, UEPS restated their financial statements due in part to the Company’s misclassification of their investment in Cell C Proprietary Limited.
After the announcement, UEPS’s share price fell from $7.00 per share on November 8, 2018 to a closing price of $4.84 on November 9, 2018—a $2.16 or a 30.86% drop.
