WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to determine whether Cemtrex, Inc. (“Cemtrex” or the “Company”) and certain of its officers and directors made false and misleading statements and/or omissions in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
The first of several class action lawsuits was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Cemtrex, Inc. (NASDAQ: CETX) between February 11, 2016 and February 22, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that Cemtrex and certain of its officers and directors (“Defendants”) misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) defendant Aron Govil, current Executive Director and former Chairman, Treasurer, President and Chief Executive Officer at Cemtrex, had a role at Southern Steel & Construction Inc., which was allegedly paying a stock promoter to market Cemtrex stock; and (2) as a result, Defendants’ statements about the Company’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
On February 22, 2017, Seeking Alpha published a lengthy article titled “Cemtrex: Documents And Photos, All Signs Point To Deception And Failure.” The article asserted: (1) insiders paid stock promoters to hype Cemtrex shares; (2) insiders disposed of substantial amounts of their Cemtrex stock while the shares were artificially inflated and without disclosing those sales; and (3) Cemtrex shares will likely be delisted and “go to effectively zero.” The price of Cemtrex shares fell from $5.12 to $3.40 on February 22.
Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased Cemtrex common stock between February 11, 2016 and February 22, 2017, or former employees with information concerning this matter to contact the firm.
