NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights firm, announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all purchasers of Abengoa, S.A. (NASDAQ: ABGB) American Depository Shares from November 12, 2014 through August 2, 2015, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

NO CLASS HAS YET BEEN CERTIFIED IN THE ABOVE ACTION. UNTIL A CLASS IS CERTIFIED, YOU ARE NOT REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL UNLESS YOU RETAIN ONE. YOU MAY CHOOSE TO DO NOTHING AT THIS POINT AND REMAIN AN ABSENT CLASS MEMBER.
According to the lawsuit, Abengoa and certain of its past and present executive officers and directors have misrepresented the liquidity of Abengoa’s balance sheet in corporate reports filed with the SEC and during conference calls with financial analysts. These misrepresentations artificially elevated the trading price of Abengoa’s ADS.
On July 31, 2015, Abengoa revealed that it would decrease its free cash flow guidance, and prepare to divest itself of 400 million euros in assets. However, Defendant Santiago Seage maintained that “the company has no plan to…tap the capital markets in any manner.” Then on August 3, 2015, contrary to this statement, Abengoa announced a share issuance plan to raise 650 million euros, along with an asset divestiture totaling 500 million euros. Consequently, Abengoa’s ADS fell more than $5 per share or 46% to close at $6 on August 4, 2015.
