NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in RiT Technologies Ltd. ("RiT" or the "Company") (OTC: RITT) of the September 26, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.
The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of all those who purchased RiT securities between March 3, 2015 and July 1, 2016 (the "Class Period"). The case, PADGETT v. RIT TECHNOLOGIES LTD. et al, No. 2:16-cv-04579 was filed on July 28, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Kevin Charles McNulty.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) RiT CIS was RiT Technologies' major distributor in Russia and the CIS region; (2) RiT CIS was vital to the viability of RiT Technologies; and (3) as a result, RiT Technologies' public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.
Specifically, on February 11, 2016, the Company issued a press release revealing that RiT CIS was RiT's major distributor in Russia and the CIS region and was delaying payments to the Company thus adversely impacting RiT's current cash flow.
After this announcement, RiT's share price fell from $1.19 per share on February 10, 2016 to a closing price of $0.59 on February 11, 2016—a $0.60 or a 50.42% drop.
Additionally, on April 20, 2016, the Company issued a press release announcing that the collection progress of its Russian distributor's overdue debts was significantly lower than planned, and that the CFO of RiT had resigned effective immediately.
On this news, RiT's share price fell from $0.69 per share on April 19, 2016 to a closing price of $0.37 on April 20, 2016—a $0.32 or a 46.38% drop.
The lawsuit also alleges several other news disclosures such as: 1) on May 10, 2016, RiT announced that it had made no progress in the collection of the overdue debts of RiT CIS; 2) on June 3, 2016, RiT announced the resignation of the President and CEO of the Company; 3) on June 28, 2016, RiT announced that its request for continued listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market was denied, that trading of its securities will be suspended by NASDAQ on July 1, 2016 and thereafter be removed from listing on the NASDAQ; 4) and lastly on July 5, 2016, RiT announced that a group of the Company's employees had filed petitions with the Tel Aviv District Court to liquidate the Company.
As a result of these announcements, RiT's share price fell from $0.34 per share on May 9, 2016 to a closing price of $0.09 on July 5, 2016—a $0.25 or a 73.53% drop.
