NEW YORK, Jan. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, is investigating potential securities fraud at Silvercorp Metals, Inc. ("Silvercorp" or the "Company") (NYSE: SVM).
The investigation focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose that production levels of silver, lead and zinc from Silvercorp's Ying Mine, the Company's primary revenue-generating asset, were lower than had been represented.
On September 13, 2011, a short-selling analyst firm, Alfredlittle.com, issued a report that called into question the veracity of Silvercorp's claims regarding production at the Ying Mine. According to the report, Silvercorp's SEC filings overstated its actual production of silver by 306%, its production of lead by 306%, and its production of zinc by 18%. On this news, shares in Silvercorp fell almost 20%, closing at $6.30 per share on September 13, 2011, from a close of $7.84 per share on September 12, 2011, on volume of over 35 million shares.
