SAN DIEGO & PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Shareholder rights law firm Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating whether certain officers and directors of PPG Industries, Inc. (NYSE: PPG) breached their fiduciary duties to shareholders. PPG is currently being investigated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission after the company fired its controller in May because he told subordinates to override internal controls to improperly raise profit measures. On June 28, 2018, the company said its audit committee had completed its internal investigation of accounting irregularities and restated results related to annual reports for 2016 and 2017 and five previously filed quarterly reports. That same day, PPG's independent accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, said the company "did not maintain… effective internal control over financial reporting."
