About the Lawsuit
PPG and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On May 10, 2018, the Company disclosed that an investigation by its Audit Committee into violations of accounting policies relating to the accrual of expenses for 1Q2018 had also uncovered improper income reclassification entries made at the direction of its Vice President and Controller, who was terminated effective that day. Further, PPG would not be filing its 1Q2018 report timely and its financial statements for the FY 2017 included in its Form 10-K should no longer be relied upon.
On this news, the price of PPG’s shares plummeted.
