About the Lawsuit
Eletrobas and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
The action alleges that Eletrobas’s senior officials were in non-compliance with its corporate governance directives and Code of Ethics, resulting in investigations and disciplinary actions by various authorities and Eletrobas’s financial statements being materially false and misleading.
On April 30, 2015, Eletrobas announced that due to news reports about bribery taking place at its subsidiary, it would not be filing its Form 20-F on time and needed the additional time to follow proper auditing procedures. On this news, the price of Eletrobas’s ADSs plummeted.
Then, on September 1, 2015, the former CEO of Eletrobas’s nuclear power subsidiary was formally charged with accepting bribes.
