Aegean Accused of Publishing Inaccurate Financial Results
According to the complaint, throughout the class period, Aegean issued a series of misleading financial statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission misrepresenting the company's ability to manage the overall quality of its credit portfolio. Despite numerous assurances, Aegean failed to implement sufficient financial controls. The truth about the company's business prospects was revealed on June 5, 2018, when Aegean announced that approximately $200 million of accounts receivable owed to the company would need to be written off, admitting that the transactions that gave rise to the accounts receivable may have been improperly accounted for. On this news, Aegean's stock plummeted over 75% to close at $0.70 per share on June 5, 2018.
