Power Solutions Accused of Issuing Misleading Financial Information
According to the complaint, throughout the class period, Power Solutions submitted several filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), certifying that the financial information was accurate and disclosed any material changes to the company's internal control over financial reporting. However, the complaint alleges that Power Solutions officials failed to disclose that: (1) the company improperly recognized revenue for certain transactions; (2) that, as a result, the company's financial statements were misstated and not presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (3) that the company lacked adequate internal controls over financial reporting; and (4) that, as a result, the company's statements about its business, operations, and prospects were misleading.
On August 4, 2016, Power Solutions announced the postponement of its second quarter 2016 earnings release and conference call to "allow for more time to finalize its quarterly financial results." Then, on August 15, 2016, Power Solutions issued a press release announcing the company needed additional time to file its quarterly report with the SEC for the quarter ended June 30, 2016. The company stated that it had not completed its financial statements due to an ongoing review of allegations made by a former employee, and that the company's board had initiated an independent review primarily focused on certain transactions involving revenue recognition. On this news, Power Solutions stock fell $1.52 per share, or 9.85%, to close at $13.91 per share on August 16, 2016.
