NEW YORK, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Maxwell Technologies Inc. ("Maxwell Technologies" or the "Company") (NasdaqGS: MXWL).  The investigation focuses on whether the Company and certain of its former executives violated federal securities laws.

On March 8, 2013 shares of Maxwell Technologies fell over 10% in early morning trading after the Company announced that previously issued financial statements contained in its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and all unaudited quarterly reports on Form 10-Q in 2011 and 2012, respectfully, should no longer be relied upon because of errors in those financial statements.  According to the Company, the errors relate to the timing of recognition of revenue from sales to certain distributors.  The investigation discovered arrangements with certain distributors regarding the payment terms for sales to such distributors with respect to certain transactions.  These arrangements had not been communicated to Maxwell's finance and accounting department and, therefore, had not been considered when recording revenue on shipments to these distributors.   As a result of the investigation, certain employees were terminated and Maxwell's Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing resigned.
