NEW YORK, June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Lihua International, Inc. ("Lihua" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: LIWA) of the June 30, 2014 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against Lihua and certain executives.
A complaint has been filed on behalf of all persons who purchased Lihua common stock between August 9, 2012 and April 30, 2014, inclusive (the "Class Period") in the Central District of California.
The complaint alleges that the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws with respect to its disclosures concerning its business, operations, and prospects.
Specifically, the action alleges that throughout the Class Period defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the Company underwent a significant downturn in its business beginning in late 2012; (ii) the production activities of Lihua decreased in 2013 and nearly stopped after January 31, 2014; (iii) the Company's warehouse was seized by a court in the People's Republic of China; and (iv) one of the defendants is being investigated by Chinese police for larceny after attempting to move inventory.
On April 30, 2014, GeoInvesting published a blog post revealing information from a March 28, 2014 People's Daily news article containing the foregoing allegations.
Following this news, the Company's stock declined $2.27 per share, or over 52%, to close at $2.08 per share on April 30, 2014. Trading in Lihua's stock was halted by the SEC shortly afterwards.
