BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith reminds investors of the upcoming May 15, 2017 deadline to file a lead plaintiff motion in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of a class of investors who purchased or otherwise acquired Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (“Kandi” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: KNDI) securities between November 15, 2013 and March 13, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Kandi investors have until May 15, 2017 to file a lead plaintiff motion in this putative class action.
On March 13, 2017, Kandi announced that the Company would restate its “previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the first three quarters for the year ended December 31, 2016” and that these statements should no longer be relied upon.
The Complaint filed in this class action lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) certain areas in the Company's previously issued financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, and the first three quarters for the year ended December 31, 2016 required adjustment; (ii) in turn, the Company lacked effective internal controls over financial reporting; and (iii) as a result of the foregoing, Kandi's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
If you purchased Kandi securities, you may move the Court no later than May 15, 2017 to request appointment as lead plaintiff in the putative class action. To be a member of the class you need not take any action at this time; you may retain counsel of your choice or take no action and remain an absent member of the Class. If you wish to learn more about this action, or if you have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights or interests with respect to this lawsuit, please contact Howard G. Smith, Esquire, of Law Offices of Howard G.
