WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is conducting an investigation to determine whether Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (“Roadrunner” 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.
A class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern District of Wisconsin by another law firm on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (NYSE: RRTS) between May 8, 2014 and January 30, 2017, inclusive (the “Class Period”).
The complaint alleges that Roadrunner and certain of its officers and directors (“Defendants”) misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Roadrunner’s Morgan Southern, Inc. and Bruenger Trucking subsidiaries had engaged in improper accounting practices; (2) Roadrunner lacked effective internal controls; (3) as a result, Roadrunner overstated its earnings throughout the Class Period by tens of millions of dollars; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, Roadrunner’s financial statements were materially false and misleading.
The claims in this case followed the Company’s announcement on January 30, 2017, that it would have to restate its financial statements dating back to 2014 due to miscellaneous accounting errors at its Morgan Southern and Bruenger subsidiaries. Roadrunner announced that correction of the errors would result in adjustments to its previously reported results of operations in the range of $20 to $25 million. The price of Roadrunner shares fell from $11.54 to $7.92 on January 31.
Cohen Milstein encourages all investors who purchased Roadrunner common stock between May 8, 2014 and January 30, 2017, or former employees with information concerning this matter to contact the firm.
