NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at KiOR, Inc. ("KiOR" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: KIOR).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, the investigation focuses on whether: (i) KiOR made false and misleading statements concerning its ability to produce enough biofuel to be commercially meaningful during the timeframes it announced and (ii) the Company had inadequate internal controls regarding the production level calculation and forecasting at its Columbus, Mississippi facility.
On August 8, 2013, KiOR announced that it shipped over 75,000 gallons of cellulosic fuel from Columbus, contrasting with its May 2013 estimation of producing 300,000 to 500,000 gallons. Following this news, the stock dropped 9.8%.
