The complaint alleges that Chesapeake issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose it had improperly accounted for the acquisition and classification of oil and gas properties, and that it lacked effective internal financial controls. In its filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Chesapeake noted that it “follows the full cost method of accounting under which all costs associated with oil and natural gas property acquisition, drilling and completion activities are capitalized.” On September 29, 2016, Chesapeake announced that it received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice seeking information on its accounting methods for the acquisition and classification of oil and gas properties. When this news was made public, shares of Chesapeake decreased in value.
