BOSTON, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Flotek Industries, Inc. ("Flotek" or the "Company") (NYSE: FTK), and its executives, John W. Chisholm, H. Richard Walton and Robert M. Schmitz were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed today by Block & Leviton LLP alleging that they violated the Federal Securities Laws.
The lawsuit, filed in Federal Court in the Southern District of Texas, Schonder, et al. v. Flotek Industries, Inc., et al., Case No. 4:15-cv-03432, alleges that defendants made false and misleading statements related to Flotek's FracMax technology and the effectiveness of its CnF product. After Bronte Capital published an expose on November 9, 2015, and the company admitted on November 10, 2015 that its earlier statements were incorrect, shares in Flotek plunged over 50%, wiping out almost $500 million in the company's market capitalization.
