About the Lawsuit
Celadon and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
The alleged false and misleading statements and omissions include that: (i) Celadon's equity contribution to its joint venture with Element Financial Corp. was $68.2 million, not the $100 million Celadon reported in public filings; and (ii) Celadon is being investigated by the SEC.
On April 5, 2017, Prescience Point Research Group reported that Celadon, "has used off-balance sheet entities…and manipulative accounting practices to hide its insolvent condition from investors and creditors." Then, on April 19, 2017, Prescience reported that it received correspondence from the SEC indicating that Celadon was under investigation.
