Hortonworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: HDP)
On November 4, 2015, the Company represented that Hortonworks had sufficient cash and cash equivalents to fund 12 months of working capital and capital expenditure needs. On January 15, 2016, the Company announced it had retained Goldman Sachs to raise $100 million in a secondary offering. Analysts expressed surprise, with one stating, "We believe it will be incumbent on HDP during its roadshow to show why this offering, announced in this way, at this time, should not be interpreted as evidence of serious difficulty."

The investigation concerns whether the Company complied with federal disclosure laws.

On August 24, 2015, the Company reported that the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary Navient Solutions, Inc. ("NSI") had received notice that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's Office of Enforcement was considering legal action against NSI related to a previously disclosed investigation regarding assessing late fees on student loans and other related misconduct. The investigation concerns whether Company's loan servicing practices were not in compliance with applicable federal regulations, and whether the Company complied with federal disclosure laws.
Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE)
In late October 2015, Sempra Energy's subsidiary Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) discovered a natural gas leak from a well near the Porter Ranch neighborhood in Los Angeles.

On March 7, 2016, the Company disclosed it was restating its financial results for the entirety of both 2013 and 2014, as well as for the first three quarters of 2015. Tangoe has since stated that its "decision to restate these financial statements is based on the Company's conclusion that it made errors in recognizing revenue, primarily from business activities that are ancillary to the Company's core business." On this news, shares of Tangoe fell over 9%, to close at $7.05 per share on March 8, 2016. The investigation concerns whether the Company complied with federal disclosure laws.
