NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at BT Group plc ("BT" or the "Company") (NYSE: BT).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to mantian proper accounting procedures that overstated Company's earning.
Initially, on October 27, 2016, BT disclosed it was taking a non-cash £145m charge in its BT Italian operations due to "inappropriate management behaviour."
Then, during premarket hours on January 24, 2017, BT revealed the full extension of its Italian division's accounting malpractice by announcing that it would increase its writedown to £530m. The Company announced that it would be lowering guidelines for fiscal year 2017 and 2018. Additionally, BT appointed a new Chief Executive of BT Italy. After the announcement, the Company's American Depositary Receipts ("ADRs") declined severely, causing damage to investors.
