SAN FRANCISCO, July 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, a national investor-rights law firm, reminds investors of the August 3, 2015 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities fraud class action lawsuit filed against Toshiba Corporation (OTC:TOSYY) (OTC:TOSBF) (“Toshiba” or “the Company”) as a result of a now admitted accounting cover-up that began in 2008.
If you have losses in excess of $100,000.00 in TOSYY or TOSBF securities during the Class Period, or for purchases after July 22, 2010, contact Hagens Berman Partner Reed Kathrein, who is leading the firm’s investigation, by calling (510) 725-3000, emailing TOSYY@hbsslaw.com or visiting http://hb-securities.com/investigations/TOSYY.
The lawsuit, pending in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, is filed on behalf of investors who purchased Toshiba securities between May 8, 2012 and May 7, 2015, inclusive, (the “Class Period”) and seeks damages caused by the need to restate profits. The deadline to move for the position of lead plaintiff in the case is August 3, 2015.
On April 3, 2015 Toshiba issued a press release announcing that they were establishing a committee to investigate the accounting of certain infrastructure projects. On this adverse news, shares of TOSYY fell $1.23 per share, or over 4%, from its previous closing price to close at $24.56 per share on April 6, 2015, and shares of TOSBF fell $0.16 per share or over 3% from its previous closing price to close at $4.13 per share on April 6, 2015.
Toshiba announced on May 8, 2015 that another, independent investigation committee would be investigating whether certain construction projects were understating costs. Following this announcement, shares of TOSYY fell $5.75 per share, or over 23%, over the next two days to close at $18.33 per share on May 11, 2015 and shares of TOSBF fell $0.88 per share or over 22% over the next two days to close at $3.09 per share on May 11, 2015.
Today, July 21, 2015, Toshiba’s CEO Hisao Tanaka and eight other executives resigned, and acknowledged a cover up that began in 2008. Those resigning took responsibility for doctored books that inflated profits by $1.2 billion over several years.
